Three Modesto nonprofit organizations came out winners Saturday in the first Valley Designathon, a competition in which teams of techies raced to develop or redesign websites for the groups.
In one case, which turned out to be the winner, a team created a mobile app for its nonprofit.
Each of the nonprofits – the Dry Creek Trails Coalition, South Modesto Partnerships and Enterprise ReStart – was able to connect with its Designathon team weeks ahead of the event to assess needs, brainstorm and gather site content. The Dry Creek coalition worked with two teams: one for its website, one for its app.
