3/21:  We are starting to hash out the entertainment schedules and are looking for good ideas for some of our codeathon events.  Give your thoughts on the Food and Entertainment (Codeathon) page!


3/20:  Recruiting begins... tonight we sent out our first e-mails to attendees from the previous codeathon.  Hello everyone!!  Sign up at the Who's Coming pages for the designathon and codeathon!


3/14:  The designathon and codeathon wikis have been consolidated.  PR push to happen over the next several days :-)  Help us recruit!




About the Events:


Designathon/Codeathon 2.0 is the second in a series of volunteer events to help build usable and accessible Web 2.0 tools for non-profit organizations!


All of our development will be open source, and built for general use by non-profit organizations (as opposed to being custom-built for a specific organization).


These will be productive but fun events, with some unique food and entertainment provided to keep things interesting.  This is a great way to spend time with a lot of other smart, interesting techies while putting your skills towards something good in the world!  A first successful codeathon was thrown in October -- you can see videos from the event on YouTube (thanks Kai!).


The designathon will take place April 14th-15th, laying groundwork in terms of functional, UI, and technical design.  The codeathon will take place April 21st-22nd, at which programmers will implement designs created at the designathon, or other designs of their own choosing.


You can find out additional details using the "SideBar" navigation menu to the right.
