Jim Feeley

“The Read Pen community provides a place to connect, learn, and grow. As a technical writer, it is an invaluable resource for understanding the opportunities and dynamics of Ottawa’s tech scene. I moved to Ottawa from Calgary last year and the Read Pen community bolstered my confidence while looking for work in a new city. I highly recommend attending any Read Pen events, and connecting with Tina Klein Walsh if you would like to know more about what Ottawa has to offer.”
