Aidmatrix Participates in the "We are Microsoft" Charity Challenge Weekend

This weekend Rajesh Krishnamohan, our Master Architect, and I had the opportunity to participate in an local “We Are Microsoft” Charity Weekend Event. I can’t tell you how re-engergized I am in our mission as a result. It brought together about 100 technology volunteers from local companies who volunteer to help build websites and applications for 20 local nonprofits. Aidmatrix was one of these nonprofits and our partner was a local technology firm specializing in social networking. Their efforts on this project were “awesome” and will move the schedule forward on this project by 3 or 6 months.

I am excited because of the opportunity to directly interact with these nonprofits, and even more so because of the commitment to help on the part of the 100 technology volunteers; they spent their entire weekend (and some VERY late nights) helping out humanity with the skills they use in the for-profit world. Thanks to all who were involved in this great event.
