Our Co-Founders are headed to Nebraska.Code() conference next week and will be presenting 4 sessions on Friday, May 20th. It’s a great opportunity for our team to share our experiences and give back to the community through speaking and we are pleased to have been selected to speak at Nebraska.Code() again this year.
In addition to speaking, Nebraska.Code() gives us a chance to contribute our skills to help others. The conference will be hosting the Humanitarian Toolbox project with a code-a-thon that will allow attendees to work on developing software tools to help with disaster relief around the globe. We are pleased to be able to contribute our time and skills to this great cause and hope to see many of our fellow speakers and attendees at the Code-A-Thon.
