As a web developer myself, when I initially heard about IT involvement in Bible translation I imagined maybe there was some special word processing software and, of course, infrastructure work to support the organization, but that it was all probably outdated and antiquated.
After spending a week at the Check-IT-Out conference I was blown away to learn of the vast scope of the technology work at hand from software, animation, hardware, web, mobile, etc., and that a lot of what was being done was really cutting-edge and driving enhancements to some major open-source projects.
I would highly recommend a Check-IT-Out conference to anyone with a passion in technology and a desire to put that passion to work for the Lord.
The CIO Vacation Conference was a great experience for our whole family. My husband was energized and excited about the ways that God can use his passion for technology for His glory.
My son loved the MK Station, and the CIO staff were wonderful at presenting the technical information in a way that I could understand it without being an IT professional.
The week was a great balance of information and relaxation. My favorite part was experiencing the community at JAARS and everyone’s love for God and each other there.
