The Technology Association of Oregon will host its annual tech tour in Bend on Monday, Sept. 17. The unique events offers job hunters, tech enthusiasts and students the chance to tour several of Central Oregon’s tech companies, see what they’re working on, and network with potential employers. The Bend event is part of a statewide week of tech tours, with TAO hosting similar events in Portland, Eugene, Vancouver, and Hood River.
