I am excited to announce that hot off the heels of 8(a) certification by the US Small Business Administration, the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (SBSD) has now also certified Vidya as part of its Small, Women-owned, and Minority-owned Business (SWaM) program.

At Vidya, we have been very privileged to deliver high-quality software to a wide array of government and commercial clients using exciting technology while promoting lean principles, agile software development, and diversity in software engineering. The best part about it? It’s been fun! Doing great work and contributing to the community—whether writing on our blog, answering questions on Stack Overflow, contributing to open-source on GitHub, speaking at conferences, and even posting video tutorials on YouTube—have been the most rewarding professional experience of my life.

Vidya is based in Virginia just outside Washington, DC, and SWaM certification by SBSD shows Virginia that Vidya has demonstrated the kind of growth potential that should make state government agencies who need technology services take notice. As the SBSD describes:

The purpose is to enhance procurement opportunities for SWaM businesses participating in state-funded projects.

We look forward to building new relationships and to delivering our services to government agencies in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are also excited about expanding our current offerings by making our courses available online and building new software products.

We want to thank the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity for recognizing Vidya’s past success and future potential, and we cannot wait to do business with you. Let’s talk.
