Nonprofit organizations have become increasingly reliant on using web platforms, mobile apps, and social media as specific tools to achieve their goals. Increasingly, nonprofits are becoming tech-centric - not only are they using these tools to promote their mission, they are using them as a way to manage, measure, and engage end-users in real time. But, keeping technical tools up-to-date isn’t cheap and requires technical expertise. Nonprofits find that their technical capabilities become outdated quickly, and so they look to volunteers to help. But often, volunteers underestimate the time and experience needed to follow-through, and organizations consistently get let down by this strategy. During this talk, Deep Datta from SocialCoding4Good will review the challenges currently faced by technical nonprofits, and will introduce a new paradigm of solutions rooted in open source.
