January 15, 2011 - The Remás team was one of the eight nonprofits selected to participate in Givecamp 2011. Sponsored by Microsoft, DevExpress, and others, GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time and expertise to build custom software applications for nonprofit organizations.  We made a lot of friends, drank a lot of coffee, ate way too much fast food, and at least three people slept on the carpeted floor of a conference room.  But most important of all, we came out of the event with a ramped-up version of our money transfer price comparison site!
