Matt Woodward, Kurt Wiersma and I are proud to announce that the Enlist App that we started at OpenCF Summit will have an un-official hackfest at cf.Objective() 2011. So if you are attending cf.Objective() 2011 this week and you're interested in becoming open source contribute, please join our un-official hackfest.
Enlist is an open source and free application that aims to help non-profits organize volunteers, track volunteer hours and management volunteer rewards. The HackFest aims to build a functional application that could be leveraged by non-profit organizations to better manage and track everything to do with volunteers. The idea came forth after Peter Farrell volunteered for a Team Ortho event and noticed that all volunteer hours were being tracked on spreadsheets. These spreadsheets were used to generate volunteer reward "bones" (points) in which volunteers could use to enter Team Ortho race events or purchase running gear.
All you need to start is to find Matt, Kurt or me at cf.Objective() and get a contributor account:
