NERD Summit is a product of New England Regional Developers (NERD). It is an inclusive, community-building tech event in New England. NERDS Summit is held in the INTEGRATED SCIENCES BUILDING at UMass Amherst in Amherst, Massachusetts.
NERD creates positive and supportive learning opportunities for people who work, or want to work in web and related technologies in the New England area.
The mission of NERD (New England Regional Developers) is to collaborate with the regional community to ensure that the annual Summit and events throughout the year offer everyone, regardless of background or finances, a diverse curriculum for relevant skill building and valuable networking opportunities. This supports our vision of creating positive and supportive learning opportunities for people who work or want to work in web and related technology. Too many smart, passionate people have been traditionally excluded from tech careers, and we're changing that.
