The first annual Nowhere Developers Conference – helmed by a team of SupplyPike and Startup Junkie organizers – brought tech gurus from companies like Google, Mozilla, AngelHack, and more to Northwest Arkansas last week. In attendance were over 250 developers and engineers from across the country…and 20-plus Northwest Arkansas high school students. Julian Sanker, a freshman at Haas Hall Academy in Rogers, had a passion for coding and development and knew students like him wanted opportunities to learn more, but may not have the funds to attend tech conferences like their older counterparts. So, his nonprofit, TeenDevConf, was born. In an article for Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, reporter Nathan Owens wrote:
“Sanker, 14, began the nonprofit TeenDevConf earlier this year with the goal of funding maybe 15 students to attend the Nowhere Developer’s Conference in Bentonville.” “Sanker said he surpassed his fundraising goal of $1,337 in about a month. But not just anyone could attend the conference for free; first, interested students had to pass a coding test. If they passed with over a 90 percent grade, they got a grant.”

Why is OTIF Important?

Not complying with your purchasers’ OTIF requirements can be very costly, and result in hefty fines. For example, Walmart fines its vendors 3% of the cost of goods sold if the order fails OTIF requirements. In 2016, Target stores increased their OTIF penalties to 5% of the order cost, five times what it previously was. That kind of money adds up!
