When & Where
We will have all your meals and drinks taken care of (including Red Bull and coffee 24/7), but if you have any special dietary needs, we do have fridges for you to store your own food in.
We also encourage volunteers to bring snacks to share!
We need all kinds of volunteers, not just designers and developers. We need people to do setup, teardown, make badges, put in content, project management, etc. If you are interested, let us know.
Staying the night? We have air mattresses and a quiet ‘dark’ room for those who want to spend the night.
Thank you Hothouse for allowing us to use their parking lot across from Ponce City Market! See parking MAP! Print THIS voucher for your windshield. Spots are limited so first come, first serve. Once these free spots are gone, you will need to pay for parking at PCM or elsewhere in the neighborhood. If you are arriving with a lot/heavy items, we will have volunteers located at the two curbside entrances near West Elm. You can pull up, unload and then go park your car. Look for our navy event shirts and balloons!
Don’t miss the welcome program on Friday evening with exciting guest speakers!
Be sure to stick around the whole weekend to help your team! We will be doing chance drawings and dev team announcements throughout the weekend!
Late night arrivals? Doors lock at night! However we will still be going strong! There will be a phone number to call at the entrance if the doors or a volunteer to let you in! Be sure to show your name tag and lanyard for access!
The closing program on Sunday evening will include a judges panel of prominent names in Atlanta who will vote on best new website at 48in48ATL!
That is the magical question isn’t it? We admit, this is a big undertaking and is going to take a lot of work. Without getting into all of the details, each nonprofit will be assigned a team of one designer and two developers that will do the work on their site. We have taken the time to come up with several processes that will expedite the design and development work, but rest assured, this project will live up to its name and all sites will be designed and developed within the 48-hour span. If you are really curious about the details of how we will accomplish this and want to see it unfold, we would love for you to volunteer to help!
Each nonprofit that wants to participate in 48in48 must meet the below criteria and agree to the following:
The nonprofit must:
- Serve Atlanta.
- Have at least one full-time employee.
- Set aside $500 to cover taking the website live after the event. This money may or may not be needed, depending on any advanced technical needs of the website. But we want to make sure IF it needs further work, your Nonprofit is able to get it done.
The nonprofit must agree to:
- Have content for the website completed by the specified date.
- Have all questionnaires for the website completed by the specified date.
Nonprofits that meet this criteria can apply and will then be vetted by a volunteer selection committee.
Selections are limited to 48 nonprofits.
