Support: It’s Not Technical All the Time…
When most people hear the words ‘support’ and ‘Contegix’ they think of our stellar technical support team of engineers. But that’s not the only support that Contegix does. In fact, we support more than just our clients and partners. We also support several worthy organizations that strive to push innovation and education for the masses in our industry forward.
So far this year, we’ve had the distinct honor of sponsoring the GR8 (Groovy/Grails/Griffon) in the US conference this past April in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is the FIRST conference of its kind being held in the US and it was a smashing success.
In addition, this year we’ve also sponsored the NFJS (No Fluff Just Stuff) technical conference as it makes its way across the US. This coming October, we’ll be a key sponsor of the Strange Loop technical conference being held in St. Louis, Missouri.
It doesn’t stop there. We recently heard about a terrific organization based on the East Coast called Jasig, which is a consortium of educational institutions and commercial affiliates who work together enabling the funding of open source software projects for higher education.
If you are part of a company that can assist any of these great organizations, we are sure they would appreciate the help. And all of us pitching in and supporting them together will only enable those who work in open source to benefit and move our technology forward.
