Project Guidelines


Project Criteria:

You can use this page to sign up early for events you are interested in, or to propose new projects. Work at the events won't be restricted to projects posted on this list. Anything is fair game as long as it meets the following criteria:

  1. Non-profit relevance: Software should be useful to non-profit organizations.
  2. General relevance: Software should have a wide variety of applications to different organizations and situations, as opposed to being tailor-made for one specific organization.
  3. Open source: All software developed will be open source... this is a charity event!


Project Responsibility:

You own your project! We are providing tools and an environment to facilitate ideas, productivity, fun, teambuilding... but ultimately you, the volunteers, own what you create and are responsible for taking it where you want to go.


Do you hope to integrate your project with another piece of software being developed at the codeathon? Coordinate your design with the other team early. Do you have aspirations of widespread adoption? We'll showcase projects on the wiki after we're done, but reach out to your target audience and spread the word. Are you creating a longer-term project? Try to recruit volunteers who want to continue development, or even a project lead who will carry the torch after the event.


Project Pages:

It is highly recommended that each project create its own wiki page for the team to collaborate, and for other interested parties to find out details about the project. You are free to use this sample project page as a template.

Project Leads:

I added a column for "Project Lead" as a suggestion that project teams (designers and coders together) elect a project lead who will make sure the project "succeeds," whatever a team takes that to mean. For example:
