This year, we’ve recruited over 50 volunteers who will be building websites for seven non-profits:
While the center of the event is the hackathon, we encourage the public to attend. WIMPgives is an opportunity for the non-profit community to network with each other and with the digital media professionals that comprise WIMP.
It’s also an opportunity for local business owners to meet the designers, developers, marketers, photographers, and videographers that live in their backyard.
Web & Interactive Media Professionals is a trade group of digital media pros based out of Sonoma County, California.
Our group represents over 400 local designers, developers, marketers, writers, photographers, videographers, and anyone else that has a hand in digital media. We have over 700 members worldwide.
We swap stories, trade tools, collaborate, and learn online and offline. We do a lunch and a topical meetup every month, WIMPshops on occasion, and do special events like WIMPgives and WIMPcamp on an annual basis. We have WIMPspace, a coworking and colearning space which is the central hub of operations.
