September 20th is National IT Professionals Day. According to the National Day Calendar, "National IT Professionals Day is set aside to honor the venerable geeks of the world we all rely on to keep us connected. The IT (information technology) professional is the unsung hero of modern business... Whether it be desktops, laptops, mobile devices, applications, servers, networks, databases or cyber security, IT professionals keep business humming."
We are proud to be members of the IT Professionals community. At Spud Software, our mission is to help other businesses grow, and as they grow, we grow. As we grow, we can do that much more to help the community around us thrive.
But we're also so much more than computer geeks. Our team at Spud Software is passionate about our work but we're also passionate about giving back to our community.
This past Sunday we participated in the 7th Annual Davison Dog Walk in partnership with Lucky Day Animal Rescue. The event, which took place at Davison's Jack Abernathy Regional Park, hosted local dog owners and rescue organizations.
This year the Dog walk partnered with Lucky Day Animal Rescue, which is run by Gretchen Sommer. The rescue is dedicated to the rehabilitation of unwanted, abandoned or suffering animals.
The event encouraged animal adoptions and featured pet contests with local celebrity judges. Pets competed in categories such as "most ear-resistible," best tail wag, and a pet/owner look-alike competition. Local vets were also on hand for low-cost nail clipping and microchipping.
If you're looking to give back by adopting a rescue animal, check out Lucky Day Animal Rescue. Adopt a homeless animal and make it their lucky day.
As for Spud Software, we'll continue supporting such great local causes and being the IT professionals you can look to, not only as leaders in our community, but leaders in our field. Whether you need a custom software solution, a mobile app, software prototyping or project scoping, consider us for your next development need.
Innovation, integrity and passion are the foundation of everything we do as a company and as good neighbors.
