Project spotlight: Use your talents here
Editor’s note: This is the first in a new series where we will choose a few active projects listed on Indigitous.org to highlight. Each of the projects that we spotlight were chosen because we believe they have real potential and are still getting active work, but have some needs that must be met for the project to move forward. Our hope is that some of you reading this article can meet those needs.
Walk Beside is a mobile app designed to take online personal discipling to the next level. It began as an Indigitous #HACK project and is still getting active coding from Indigitous members in Australia, South Africa, and more, but it still needs more coders to help move the project forward. If you can help, contact Tony.
