Introducing TECHdotMN /Show

by The TECHdotMN Team

Just like we imported Startup School from Ycombinator, we’re taking another page out of the West Coast playbook with /Show.

/Show is a place for technologists from Minnesota’s tech community to share something they’ve coded recently that’s not a polished product or anything close to a company. It’s for others to try out, give feedback on, learn from, ask questions of, or connect with the creator.
