OfficeNinjas Blog
Emails came flooding in from around the world - We want more OfficeNinjas! So we started our blog, for those who were not able to attend an ONT event. Office Ninjas began to contribute blog posts and share with others.

We are not just users of tech,

We are builders of tech.
And, we take the building part seriously. After all, Edwin is an engineer.
