Intentional Thinking Enrique Lima

Arnie Rowland (a SQL Server MVP and an amazing individual) has come up with a a great challenge for anyone who happens to be unemployed or under-employed (as he puts it).  The challenge?  Well, go on an read about it

An update, now joined by other MVPs (I see Ted Malone, another one of those great dudes I have had the joy of working with):

Pass this on, from Arnie’s post:

We are inviting unemployed or underemployed developers to propose a software project for a non-profit agency, school, or church. The idea is that we will provide a package of the latest software, tools, and training resources to help you improve your skills, get up to date with current technologies, gain practical experience, potentially earn a recommendation for your efforts, and in general, enjoy the feeling of accomplishing something useful for others. We are not giving out a ‘free lunch’, just supporting your efforts to personally gain from your own ‘sweat equity’.

Project Criteria:

  • Client is a registered IRS 503(c)3 non-profit, school, or church
  • Solves a problem or satisfies a need for the client
  • Client desires the project and is supportive
  • Uses any combination of .NET 4.0, Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008, or Windows Phone 7
  • May be a new software solution, or an upgrade to an existing software solution.
