Week One Recap and Software Demo

So, a week ago the EspoTek Labrador launched on Crowd Supply. And what a crazy week it’s been!

First thing’s first - I’ve made a video demonstration of the software.
The software is possibly the best bit about Labrador - it’s really easy to use!

Check out the video and see for yourself.

Thanks to everyone who’s said hello (and I’d love to hear more; who are you and what do you do?).

And thanks to the over 200 pledges by people who were willing to pledge actual, cold hard cash. (You don’t get validation better than that!)

It’s an amazing feeling to know that people I’ve never met before, from the other side of the world genuinely care about my little project.

But now, it’s time for Labrador to spread further.

Any way you can spread the word will be greatly appreciated - be it through social media, a tip to a blog or a post on a forum.

I’ll be putting my head down, bum up, and trying to get eyeballs to the page for a while to come.

Lets see Labrador hit 100% by the next update!

Thanks once again to everyone who has supported Labrador. ~Chris
