Microsoft Helping to Launch National Day of GiveCamp

It is very exciting to see that Microsoft is stepping it up when it comes to helping developers give back to the community. 

Scheduled for January 14-16, 2011, to coincide with the MLK National Holiday, the National Day of GiveCamp will be a single day where GiveCamp events will be run simultaneously in multiple cities all over the US.

This is a cause that is very close to my heart and I have been working very hard to help bring the GiveCamp event to Northwest Arkansas.

It is also very exciting to see that many of these events will be using the Give Camp Starter Site.  This open source project hosted on codeplex has become a focus on mine in the recent months.

I look forward to seeing all the good that can happen on a single weekend and hope to get lots of feedback on what we can do in the next release of the starter site.

For those of you looking for assistance on getting the starter site up and running don’t hesitate to contact me.  I will also be posting some more detailed blogs about how to do common things in the starter site to allow you to customize it to your needs.
