These Orlando Tech Association (OTA) Meetups have been great. A guaranteed packed house, full of varying levels of tech knowledge; this group is always ready to learn and connect. Since January we have seen presentations monthly at Church St Exchange on automated car innovation, Women in Tech and Fintech (financial technology). The latest OTA however took us on the road and was focused around makerspaces. This is the concept of bringing creatives of all different skill sets and talent levels together to reach a common goal. In order to accomplish this members of these spaces must work together. Whether the goal is a quick thermometer build with a raspberry pi or a ten foot tall Star Wars game, makerspaces are the breeding ground for some truly amazing work. Collaboration in the Orlando tech market is vital for growth, and this was abundantly clear standing in the middle of 75 creatives in this collaborative space. Thanks Orlando Tech Association.
