Improve Skill and Portfolio
An online community where volunteer developers offer their skill and time to non-profits organisations. They in return get to polish their skill and add projects to their portfolio while giving back to the society.
Any Non-Profit organisation can post their project and request for help. Any developer is also free to join and contribute to any of the projects they are able to contribute to.
Open Source Software
All the work here is based on an Open Source foundation. The products built are based on Open Source software and remain as such.
Anyone can join and then start committing code or a submit project. All you need is a Github account.
Github issues will be used to track features and bugs and for communication between developers and nonprofits. Learn about Github Issues
