Winding Down For The Weekend

Another exciting week has come and gone at DC based Drupal and WordPress development and design office, WebDevelopmentGroup.com. We are working on a lot of exciting projects, our office dogs have calmed down, and CreateathonDC is in full swing. We are actively recruiting sponsors (announcements will be made next week on some of the bigger names that we have), volunteer applications are coming in daily, and nonprofits have really taken up the cause. If you want to learn more about CreateathonDC, visit the official site.
