Since 2006, Front Porch Forum has been helping neighbors connect and build community by hosting a statewide network of online local forums. Our strong tech team plays a crucial role in this work and we’re happy to announce the addition of our new in-house software engineer – Matt Barry!
Matt works closely with longtime CTO, Jan Schultz, and Toronto-based tech firm The Working Group. Together they maintain and improve FPF’s unique web application, which is used by half of the households in Vermont on a daily basis. Stay posted for new features and updates!
Matt looks forward to his new role and remarks “I really enjoy working on a special product that has a measurable positive impact, not only in the community I live in, but also across the state. I think FPF has some unique and interesting technical challenges due to the inherently geographic nature of the service.”
