Sun Times' Daily Splash. The piece focused on our involvement with the excellent local NFP, i.c. stars. Since 1999, i.c.stars has been identifying, training and jump-starting technology careers for Chicago-area low-income young adults who demonstrate extraordinary potential for success. The program puts talented young adults through three-month technology boot camps, while partnering with Chicago tech firms to provide real-world experience.
We've been a sponsor of i.c. stars for a number of years and, thanks to our continued growth, have been able to increase our involvement with the organization. A couple stars, Lance Andrews and Alphonso Scales recently partnered with our team to complete a mobile project for the State of Illinois. They have now moved on to work on the next release of our MiTeam app. As they work through their internship they are coming up to speed quickly on next-generation HTML5 technologies and have been a great addition to our team.
It's been a great partnership with the stars. The leadership team over there are really making a difference and we wish them continued success. Their upcoming TechBash event is always a great time, if you haven't been to one, you should check it out.
