OUR MISSION

We exist to provide opportunities to learn from each other, develop close professional relationships, and bring experts from around the country to West Michigan to share their knowledge.

 
 

Founded in the fall of 2003 by Atomic Object, SoftwareGR is a 501c6 non-profit trade association dedicated to building and supporting the software development community in West Michigan.

We believe software design and development expertise is a critical factor to a modern, diverse, and healthy economy. We exist to provide opportunities to learn from each other, develop close professional relationships, and bring experts from around the country to West Michigan to share their knowledge.

The diverse range of speakers, events, and groups we support illustrate the full breadth of what it takes to create great software.
