Here’s a monthly recap of some of the topics covered in last month's Tech Shares—a weekly meeting where the REDspace team shares tools, resources, and general knowledge about the web and technology industry as a whole.

At REDspace, knowledge sharing and continuous learning is at the heart of what we do. 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.
