Hour of Code!
Indy – Our Local Community
Most E-gineers live within the metro Indianapolis area. We love our city, its surrounding counties, and our great state of Indiana.
Sure, we have clients and love providing services outside the wonderful Midwest. But the Indy area is where most of us live, work, do our shopping, enjoy the outdoors (in four true seasons!), worship, raise our families, and show crazy-support for local sports.
This is where we choose to serve and wring our lives out within our community.
As a business, here are just a few of many ways we intentionally give ourselves around Indy.
We have the privilege of hosting several regular meet-ups!
“A group of professionals and hobbyists in the Indianapolis area who share an interest in Java technology…”
“A monthly gathering of local Mac and iOS developers to discuss building great software…”
“A group of people who get together to talk about Scala, learn Scala, and enjoy the camaraderie of other Scala enthusiasts…”
“A not-for-profit organization which supports and encourages families interested in home education…”
Sponsorships and Partnerships
Helping “Break the Cycle of Poverty.” We hosted some Shepherd Youth recently, to give them an idea of what E-gineering does and what we’re about. Our intent was to share many of the skills and roles around E-g and the market, so they’d get a better idea of the types of jobs to strive for, as well as what education and skills those jobs require.
We are proud to be a sponsor for a local conference about building businesses around Mac and iOS development. The Release Notes folks are good friends of ours.
In the past we’ve hosted Hour of Code / “Bring your kids to work” days. And we’re looking forward to more in our future! We’ll make posts to our Facebook and Twitter pages when the time comes, so stay tuned.
Another cause we’re proud to support that involves outdoor activity!
And of course many E-gineers give personal time to non-profit charities, ministries, sports clubs, and school activities as well as participate as chairs/co-chairs/members of local boards, Rotary Clubs, and advisory boards.
It shows that the true heart of service doesn’t always mean service for pay.
