-------- THE LAB ---------
Code Green Labs (http://codegreenlabs.com) is offering Agile Planning/Rails Lab in Washington DC, November, 1-4, 2007.
This lab will be held on the campus of Georgetown University and is hosted by the Center for New Designs in Learning and
During this lab we will work directly with Segundo Velasquez from Mano a Mano to define the first release of their Donor
Information and Online Donation application. Mano a Mano will use this application to communicate the status of their
many ongoing projects to donors and potential donors. This application will be released as an Open Source project to help
other not for profits achieve their goals. The mission of Mano a Mano Medical Resources is to create partnerships with
impoverished Bolivian communities that improve health and increase economic well-being. Mano a Mano has been guided
by the simple yet powerful premise that groups of committed volunteers can reach across national boundaries to make a
dramatic difference in the lives of others.
Segundo gave and interview and talk at Agile2007 and that interview can be found here.
