Colorado Tech Weekly #258: When Turning Ideas into Tech, The Details Matter

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

This week’s headlines have me thinking about details. As a business-person or entrepreneur you are going to tell someone with some technical knowledge “I want to do a thing” and they are going to ask you “Yeah, but how?” which makes me want to ask: At which point is it best to answer the question “Yeah, but how?” At the project management level? UX level? When acquiring resources? When creating the programming?

When is it best to answer that question? Easy! It’s at every level! The more you’re willing to answer questions about the details, the better work you’ll get out of every step of your process.

On the other side, I don’t think it’s ever a bad idea as a developer, project manager, or anyone involved in the implementation process to ask “Yeah, but how?” It’s important for everyone involved to be on the same page.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #119: Boulder, Leaves and Change

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

“The only constant is change” said someone who says things that other people repeat. This is CTW #119 and by pure coincidence I drove up Highway 119 yesterday to look at the changing leaves. I also drove through Boulder to come back home after driving through the mountains. It also appears that most of our tech news this week goes through Boulder.
