Giving back to the community is deeply ingrained in Nutmeg Consulting’s culture. Most of our staff come from a Not-for-Profit background and virtually all of our staff are active in their respective communities. We like to think Nutmeg reflects the values of our founders and staff so we try and contribute as a company where we can.
Recently, Chris Shipley (President), Adam Yarnott (Software Developer) and Seth Walter (Database Administrator) participated in the “Advocate for the Homeless Hackathon” as part of National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC)’s Spring 2013 conference. The event was held in Seattle, WA, on April 25th and 26th. The goal of the Hackathon was to “create a web service / smart phone app that will allow anyone to easily advocate for the homeless.”
Nutmeg staff along with students from San Jose State University, staff from Cisco Systems and Alexandria Consulting, donated time and equipment to assist in the Hackathon and development of the app.
View our videos posted on YouTube (links provided below) to see the work done by the SJSU students as well as a preview of the in-progress app as described by Chris Shipley.
