We are proud to be sponsors of the Chicago Overnight Website Challenge, an event organized by interactive development firm The Nerdery, where volunteers form teams of 8-10 web pros that show up not knowing what nonprofit they’ll serve, pro bono, for 24 hours. Previously volunteers have freely given over $1.5 million worth of professional web development services to 57 nonprofit organizations. This a good start, but as long as there are good nonprofits with bad (or no) websites they will rally the community to deliver.
They are actively looking for web developers looking to donate their time and sharpen their skills by helping out worthy organizations and for organizations needing new web sites. Please apply for either spot right on their web site. Steadfast Networks is donating a free Virtual Machine (our new Enterprise VM services will be out shortly) to every participating non-profit, now do your part!
