Tech Valley is Awesome

Written on July 31, 2012

One of my developer buddies (a local Build Guilder and lead engineer at Agora Games, which happens to be a client of mine), Dave Czarnecki, was featured on Github’s very first Game Bytes this morning. I’m really stoked for him.

It’s very exciting to see local Tech Valley (New York’s Capitol Region and surrounding area of Troy, Schenectady, Albany, and Saratoga Springs) companies getting big national attention. The developer community here is growing like wild fire, and bigger and better stuff keeps spilling out into the greater industry. Beyond Agora Games, there are many great companies, apps, and games created here, including:

The list goes on. My buddy and Statamic co-founder, Mubashar Iqbal, recently launched TchVlly to help expose the people and companies that are working to put this area on the map.

I love it here.
