Opportunities in the cloud

HENDERSON, Ky. — The Henderson County Public Library closed to in-person services Wednesday and will remain closed Thursday.
However, the computer lab will remain open.

NZ’s halo effect on software
Being from New Zealand is a good thing. Especially if you develop software. That’s according to the organisation Buy NZ Made, which have launched the NZ Code trademark.
