We Love Employee Reviews!

James PhotoWe love receiving amazing notes about our fellow teammates.  This latest review on James Porcha from our IT department makes us so happy!

“Every team has that “go-to-guy” that it counts on when the game is on the line. The legendary Michael Jordan was that “guy” for the Chicago Bulls Dynasty in the 1990s.  Fast forward to 2016, LeBron James assumes “go-to-guy” status for the defending World Champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

OmniSpear, Inc. has its own version of “go-to-guy.” Most of us depend on computers daily.  So when something goes wrong, we need that “guy” to turn to.  OmniSpear’s version of MJ or King James is James Porcha, a help-desk technician at OmniSpear.  With over 10 years in the IT field, I know James has the experience to help whatever issues arise.

It is interesting to note that this all started out as a hobby for James.  His passion for technology was truly helpful to family and friends who encountered computer issues.  It has now transitioned into a successful career.  And you can count on James during times of need.

As stated on OmniSpear’s website, when it comes to buying or repairing computers and other technology, James has clearly established a reputation for himself as everyone’s – wait for it – “Go-To-Guy!”

Dayton Fight Night

Fight NightMemorial Hall wouldn’t figure to be a setting for IT associates and staff,  but that’s exactly where our team could be found for Fight Night.

Our crew witnessed some of Dayton’s fiercest men and women battle it out on Dayton Fight Night last month. These Daytonians were featured on boxing’s center stage for the right to claim the title of “Miami Valley’s Toughest.”

Thankfully, our team has earned a good name for tech support.  No word yet on whether or not any of the rugged IT experts pictured will take their talents to the boxing ring.  In any event, a good time was by our OmniSpear attendees.

A Recap of Laracon 2016

ZeevOmniSpear was thrilled to attend the 2016 Laracon event in Louisville, KY last week!  There were a number of great speakers and a packed house of eager web developers and business owners absorbing the latest information on Laravel and connecting PHP to business practices.  From the  web application demonstration by Adam Wathan (an area we particularly enjoy building for our clients) to unique history of the framework by Zeev Suraski (pictured here), we had a wonderful time collaborating with fellow IT and web businesses from across the states.  We are looking forward to next year’s event!
