KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Local computer programmers pulled an all-nighter on Saturday all in an effort to give back to the community.
It’s part of the Nerdery Overnight Website Challenge. The local group spent all day and night creating websites for four local nonprofits. Similar events also took place in Minneapolis and Chicago.
“If you try to give nerds a community service day where they’re out working in the garden or painting a house, they might look at you funny. But if you have them sit down and help a nonprofit with a new website, it’s a really easy thing,” said Kris Kulsrud, Development Manager of Nerdery in Kansas City.
The top teams will be recognized at an awards ceremony April 30 at Union Station.
