I did it! I made it through my first GiveCamp! For the benefit of those not familiar with GiveCamp it’s a weekend-long event where technologists donate their time to provide software solutions to non-profit organizations that otherwise could not afford them.
When we say “weekend-long” we mean it. This was a caffeine-fueled 48 hour marathon of requirements gathering, design, code, CSS, collaboration, and stand-ups. The only thing missing was sleep! The lack of sleep was a small price to pay though to see how our work was going to breathe new life into these organizations.
