There are many ways to support and build the tech community here.
A Paid Individual Membership is another way you can help.
Memberships help a lot. They fund the daily operations of ManawaTech, support Scholarships, meetups, Stories, Podcasts and so much more. All the best local tech companies are corporate members.
Individual Memberships are for remote workers and others who'd like to help us keep doing what we do. Or, if you work in a local tech company that is not a member yet, maybe give them a nudge. Then all their staff (including you) can access our Member Benefits
I see the work being done by ManawaTech - things like software meetups, helping people find jobs and fill roles, and working with people on professional development, mentoring, and helping in schools and on community projects. I jumped at the chance to join as an individual member, so that these efforts may continue to exist, and to help foster the future of software development in the Manawatu.
