Recently, BlueLock sponsored an exciting event here in Indianapolis. It was the first Byte Night, an event benefiting NPower IN, a non-profit focused on providing technology services to non-profits. The evening was billed as:
"A fun, social gathering of the area’s top IT leaders who are committed to improving and sustaining technology’s impact on non-profits in Central Indiana."
Funny how different paths in life connect. Three years ago, I met Pat O’Day, BlueLock’s CTO, when he joined the NPower IN Board. I began serving on the Board two years earlier. Who would have "thunk" that I would become a BlueLocker, which happened about two months ago.
I couldn’t have been prouder that night both of how the evening went (Pat and I both served on the planning committee!) and of being associated with the team at BlueLock. We are doing great things for our clients by providing cloud computing. I am also working with an awesome team and a company that does care about giving back to its community.
Enjoy this video from the Byte Night event. Pat presented the awards to two deserving non-profits in the city. Not your typical prize packages!
An extra treat….We had the pleasure of hearing from Christopher Gardner, the real life hero in the book/movie, The Pursuit of Happyness. What an inspiring story! Wasn’t even disappointed that Will Smith wasn’t there.
