Tech Tuesday Report: 2018.02.13

Joshua EvansAll

Let’s see what the community has been up to on the switchboard this week. We got three posts.

David is looking to fill up some commercial space in downtown Springfield. Based on the post, it looks like he is really involved with the revitalization effort over there. It’s definitely worth checking out if you are looking to fill about 2,800 square feet

It looks like David (a different David) has need of a WordPress / Generic Blog developer. He’s a “local political activist and artist” looking for a home for his art and writings, and is willing to pay.

Finally, John is looking for some help with a VR project. He is the the Director of the Northwest Screendance Exposition, and is looking to get his patrons a front row seat – no matter where they are
