Nowhere Developers Conference 2018
A one day, pure-tech conference for engineers, hackers, and makers in the heart of Northwest Arkansas.
The name, Nowhere Developers, stems from the fact that great developers aren’t just found in the Valley, or Seattle, or New York. They’re right here in the middle of “nowhere.” While other tech conferences in the region tend to focus on corporate executives and planners, this one reaches out to reach the engineers, the hackers, and the makers that build the amazing things we see every day. It hopes to bring together innovators to exchange ideas, explore emerging tech, and have a great time, all under one roof.
Topics included machine learning with neural networks, cloud computing, cryptocurrencies, developer happiness, and more, all explained enthusiastically by tech and business experts around NWA and beyond. Lots of engaging performances!
Congressional App Challenge
Some visitors from Congress came to tell us about the Congressional App Challenge, a challenge for students to create the most useful app in their congressional district. Winners are recognized by their Member of Congress, win prizes, and get to have their app put on display in the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
Each attendee got his/her very own swag bag, filled with goodies such as computer stickers, cups, gift cards, pens, and more!

What if I have school on the day of the event?Many schools will allow opportunities to attend educational events with the submission of a note that is signed by you and your legal guardian. Here’s a sample note:
Dear Principal, My TeenDevConf (link) quiz results qualified me for a complimentary pass to attend the Nowhere Developers Conference (link), an educational event for people interested in technology development. My legal guardians can drop me off and pick me up at the event in Bentonville, but since it is held on Thursday 3/15, I am requesting a day off from school.
