I received this message from a fellow TeraTech employee and thought I'd forward it along to the public.

On July 26 - 27, AboutWeb LLC (and other friends) will be hosting a Extreme Website Makeover code-a-thon for the Pan American Medical Society (PAMS) charity. PAMS is a non-profit group that facilitates the donation of medical equipment, resources, and medical personnel to disadvantaged communities locally, as well as in Latin America and the Carribean. Locally, the PAMS doctors are continuously volunteering throughout the community. And just in the past three years, the Pan American Medical Society provided assistance of intense medical-surgical activities in Northern Peru, Eastern Ecuador, and Quito. The application we are building is a social networking app with all the bells and whistles, including payment processing, photos, blogs, forums, etc. The technologies we are utilizing are mainly ColdFusion, Flex, Ajax, and YUI. The main goal of the application will be to act as a hub for PAMS members and companion groups and organizations to share resources, raise funds, and coordinate activities. Please let us know if you are able to attend! Feel free to contact us with any further questions at 301-468-9246 x104. Again, the dates for the the code-a-thon is July 26 (9:00AM) - July 27 (6:00PM) at the AboutWeb office (6177 Executive Blvd, Rockville, MD 20852). You are more than invited to come and donate your talents and whatever time your schedule allows!

Note: The work is going to be 90% ColdFusion, but I know a lot of Flex people also do ColdFusion so I thought it was appropriate for the user group.
