Please join me in thanking NERDs for their silver level sponsorship of WordCamp CT 2014. Without their support, our event wouldn’t be possible.

A not-for-profit organization, NERDs has identified and defined the major issues facing its community and industry today. The most visible symptom of these issues is the growing talent gap in the field of IT.
