On February 21st and 22nd the Code for Hampton Roads Brigade hosted a Code Across Hampton Roads event. Code for Hampton Roads is a Code Across America Brigade comprised of volunteers that contribute their talents towards improving the way local governments and community organizations use the web.
The purpose of the event was to bring together coders, designers, marketers, government staff, innovators, and anyone with the passion to make their city and the region better. In addition to having a few of our staff members participate in the event, InMotion Hosting was able to provide sponsorship.
Here is what a few our team members had to say about the event:
“Participating in Code Across gave me a great opportunity to give back to the community using skills honed at InMotion Hosting. Working on a team with other local developers, we were able to make significant contributions to open-source projects that will help improve the lives of the people living in Hampton Roads. I’m looking forward with great anticipation to what we can accomplish over the coming year.” – Blaine P- Brigade Member and IMH Web Designer
“I was surprised to see so many coders in one place collaborating on so many different projects. Everyone was so inviting, eager to socialize and share ideas. The event seemed to cater to people of varying strengths and disciplines, from novice CMS users to seasoned back-end coders—even to graphic designers, like me. I’ll definitely be returning next time, perhaps with a lot more to contribute.”- Cisco R- IMH Web Designer
The 12th Annual Southern California Linux Expo (Scale 12x) kicked off last Friday, February 21st at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport.
