Congratulations to Joshua, who describes himself as “designer, developer, trainer, and pm.” I’ve already sent the 29 prize over.

Runner up #1 is from Umasankar Arumugam, who was also a runner-up in the original Stack Overflow logo design contest. He wins $50.

The Loop-September 2020: Summer Bridge to tech for kids

In response to COVID-19 and its impact on SYEP, over 50 nonprofits and technology companies came together to design the Summer Bridge 2020 plan to continue the program. As one of Summer Bridge’s partners, Stack Overflow designed a workplace challenge to give students a taste of what it’s like to work in the tech industry and to give us a chance to learn more about how students engaged with our developer community.
