We Need Volunteers for Silicon Valley Code Camp On October 8th and 9th!


SVCC needs your help.  This year’s event is bigger and better than ever and we need more helping hands to make things run smoothly.  Volunteering has so many benefits, the chance to meet and work with others like you, that feeling of goodness knowing you are contributing to an all-volunteer technology event, plus you’re invited to attend the speaker appreciation dinner on Saturday and you’ll get a cool T-shirt.  All this for just a couple hours of your time.

Our procedure this year for volunteering is the same as last year (but not previous years).  If you want to volunteer, you need to update your registration page to let us know that at http://siliconvalley-codecamp.com/Register.aspx (assuming you have not done that already).

This registration page requires you to check the box at the bottom to volunteer, as well as put a contact mobile phone number that we can reach you on at the event itself.  Then, after you have updated your registration, go to this page: http://siliconvalley-codecamp.com/VolunteerForJob.aspx and pick the job(s) you are interested in doing.

Most of the jobs are 1 hour with a 15 minute overlap to train the next volunteer. A few jobs are longer 1.5 hours. We’d really appreciate volunteers who can handle 2 slots (back-to-back on Registration, which would effectively be about 2 hours)

Hi! I’d like to volunteer for Code Camp. Heard about it through a ProMatch distribution list posting by Bernie Maloney. Just registered — site had an error, so I’m sending you this e-mail just in case the server decided to eat my registration.

For people that are having trouble registering to volunteer. Go to the top of the registration form and make sure you are registering for 2011 and the form is not showing last year.

If the year is wrong you will keep getting the message about needng a phone number and checking volounteer.
