JUDGES TESTIMONIALS

Being a CODiE Judge gives you an opportunity to talk with people in the companies who otherwise you might not have the opportunity to meet. You can ask questions and share ideas with people who can help you really learn the products or they can make adjustments to the products per your recommendation. I have had presenters say that they really like my idea or my question pushes them to think about their product a little bit differently.
