A big Thank You to everyone who showed up for and sponsored Dallas GiveCamp 2011. As did many others, I had a great time and made some lasting new relationships as well as bonded with old friends. I owe a special thanks to Shawn Weisfeld and Chris Koenig for asking me to help with this project.
It was a great weekend of hard work and community. Attendees over came some kinks and issues to produce some great work for Charity. I have gotten a lot of fantastic feedback from both developers and charities.
Here are some of the fun facts shared in the closing remarks --
- 1000+ drinks drunk
- 500 slices of pizza eaten
- 13 charities helped
- 120 volunteers
- 2,000 hours donated to charity
If you attended Dallas GiveCamp and have any ideas of how we can make GiveCamp better next year or just want to reconnect with attendees, please join us for the Post Mortem on January 26th at Microsoft from 6-8. 2011 was GREAT, let’s make 2012 even better. I have some ideas to share, come share yours!
