In Fayetteville on Thursday, folks came together to learn more about technology while promoting gender diversity in STEM learning. 

The NWA Techfest is a forum for developers to present their ideas in front of other developers to showcase their talents as well as display the latest updates in the community. 
 
“It’s been great, JB Hunt has been working with a lot of the cutting edge technology but being able to see everyone else utilize it in different ways has been fantastic,” Board Member, Zac McCool said. 
 
Thursday’s event marks five years. 
 
Proceeds from the conference go to assist STEM-related initiatives in the Northwest Arkansas community.
