After over 24 hours of nonstop hacking, The 2012 Nerdery Overnight Website Challenge came to an exciting yet exhausting halt minutes ago.
“Every year, the teams and collective talent just get better and better,” said The Nerdery’s Mark Malmberg, who estimates that over 4,000 hours of professional services are donated throughout the experience.
The competition for good was narrowed down from 18 to 4 teams this morning, with Two Unicorns, One Moon and their client West African Medical Missions (new site DNS is still propagating) coming out on top of this years Webchallenge based on judges selection.
“I feel like we now have the Ferrari of websites,” exclaimed Executive Director Gabriel Schlough while describing his organizations mission to aid in strengthening the health capacities of West Africa.
Two Unicorns, One Moon is really TST Media in disguise, and actually the returning champs from last year. Captain Jason Reed says “The name change was somehow derived out of a pumpkin carving contest…”
Congratulations to all who participated, all who gained, and of course The Nerdery + event sponsors who help to make it all happen!
