What is the OpenLab – why work on it?

The OpenLab is a unique feature and benefit to our City Tech community. It’s built on WordPress, a dynamic open source content management system that powers about 25% of the websites on the internet. I really value the OpenLab for how effortlessly it reflects the dynamic community and work happening at City Tech. The home page alone provides a teaser for all the interesting┬ácourses and projects happening here.
