It takes a certain amount of faith to start a coworking space, said Comcast Interactive Media software engineer D. Bala Peterson, who’s starting one in Reading. Faith, and the willingness to experiment, he said.

That’s just one of the nuggests of local tech scene wisdom filmed by Maurice Gaston and David Dylan Thomas, who have spent a year and a half chronicling the growth of the Philly tech scene.

At last year’s Philly Tech Week, the pair debuted a trailer for the web series, eventually called “Developing Philly,” and this year, you can watch the first two episodes on April 24 at Venturef0rth. RSVP here.

Read more about the back story behind the documentary series here. Watch Peterson talk about coworking below.
