The best and brightest of #dctech got together for a celebration Wednesday night, as the winners of the 2017 Technical.ly DC Awards were unveiled.

The community turned out at 1776 for a party in partnership with General Assembly. The night provides a chance to recognize eye-catching work over the last year, and get a look at who the community is watching.
