Aug 25

At REDspace, knowledge sharing and continuous learning is at the heart of what we do. Every week, our team meets to share tools, resources, and general knowledge about the web and technology industry as a whole. Here’s a monthly recap of some of the topics covered in Tech Shares.

We are fortunate to have a wealth of diverse technical skills and a learning culture that really sets us apart. We love technology and finding new ways to solve problems. This helps us deliver the best solutions in the world to our clients.

In order to maximize this, we facilitate a variety of ways to collaborate and knowledge share within and across different teams. Not only does this keep us at the top of our industry, but it also dramatically helps on-boarding new team members to new projects.

One key way we do this is Tech Shares—a weekly meeting where the REDspace team shares tools, resources, and general knowledge about the web and technology industry as a whole. Here’s a monthly recap of some of the topics covered in July and August Tech Shares.
