Over the weekend, App Camp For Girls leaders from all four 2015 locations (Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, New Jersey) gathered for two days of orientation and team-building. What an amazing group of geek women! Nat Osten and Liz Marley led the group through an app-building exercise just like we do at camp. Jean MacDonald and Michelle Petruzzi unveiled the brand new App Camp For Girls Volunteer Handbook, and helped both seasoned and new camp organizers through the many details required to launch and run a session of camp.
And did we mention fun? The out-of-town organizers and lead developers were housed right in the middle of Alberta Street in Portland at the cool and quirky Inn Alberta Arts. Meeting space was generously donated next door at Community Supported Everything, an incubator for community transformation.
And, of course, the usual App Camp karaoke at Voicebox East, where we were joined by the local Portland team on Valentines Day!
