The whole weekend! The main event starts Friday evening and we (Give Camp Organizers) will be there 24/7 to help support you. However, we do not have any shower facilities.
Yes, that would work best. We don't have the resources to supply a loaner laptop/computer to all of the volunteers.
Please do your best to complete everything by 4:00 pm Sunday afternoon. We'd like to use the last hour or so to get together and show everybody the apps created over the weekend.
No, this event is about the charities. It is acceptable after the demo of the application to congratulate a team on a job well done, but this is not a competition.
You can only use technology that has been released. It is highly recommended someone on your team is experienced with the technology you are working with. While this is a great learning opportunity for developers, please remember this event is for the charities and you do have to deliver a working application at the end of the event.
Fun & Exciting!
