I’ve been slacking on the blogging front. Which is a shame, because I’ve been busy doing some really fun things recently. Want to know about one of them? I hope you do, because I’m going to talk about it regardless.
I spent last weekend at the Columbus Give Camp. What was the point of this? Well, the point of Give Camp is for a bunch of geeks to get together and help out various charities.
Over the course of the weekend, I worked on the website for HopeMongers. A lot of the underlying work had been completed, but the public facing portion of the site needed some style and panache to bring it inline with the expectations of Sam Henry, the man behind HopeMongers.
There are a few great things that come out of a weekend like this one.
Thanks to everyone involved in the Columbus Give Camp for putting things together and letting me help out by building a database schema for the back end of the site.
A big thanks to Steve Andrews, Chris Funk, Kevin Kuebler, Marwan Saleh, Phil Japiske, Kevin Malone, Carey Payette, and anyone else who worked on the HopeMongers project that I left out. You guys made it a great weekend and I’m glad I had the opportunity to work with all of you.
And a special thanks to Sam Henry for the wonderful project, the great experience, and the opportunity to keep giving back.
