On November 14 – 16, Aspiration will be hosting its annual nonprofit technology festival at Preservation Park in Oakland. The Nonprofit Software Development Summit is not just for techies! The agenda is designed to be relevant and inclusive for all nonprofit technology stakeholders, from new users to seasoned practitioners. The conference is set up to be very flexible based on the needs and interests of the attendees, and over half the sessions will get proposed and scheduled at the event.
It’s very low-cost ($150 for organizations with budgets below $5,000,000) and has a sliding scale for smaller organizations that would like to participate.
Thus far, topics include:
- Nonprofit Software Essentials (like ‘What are the Missing Tools in 2012?’)
- eAdvocacy and Online Organizing (like ‘The State of Online Activism’)
- Nonprofit Web Development (like ‘Prioritizing User Experience for the Win!’)
- Mobile Development and Mobile Security (like ‘How to Write Low-Cost Mobile Apps and Mobile Tools’)
- Mapping and Geographic Information Systems (like ‘Case Study: Saving Lives with Crowd-Sourced Mapping in Haiti’)
- Business Process and Sustainability in Non-profit Tech (like ‘What a Website Should Cost’)
- Data, Identity and Privacy (like ‘Another Cloud is Possible’)
- Open Source Content Management Systems (like ‘Introduction to WordPress’)
- Nonprofit CRM (Constituent Relationship Management) (like ‘Online Fundraising Help Session’)
- Free and Open Source Software for Nonprofits (like ‘Open Source vs. The Cloud’)
- Community and Technology (like ‘Ethical Consulting for Nonprofit Tech’)
