Colorado Tech Weekly #222: It’s Important to Ask the Right Questions

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!

Everything that has to do with creating software requires asking the right questions. Every step of the software development life cycle requires good questions. Studying to learn how to write code requires asking the right questions which usually just lead to more questions.

I highlighted the Denver Data Science Day event because data science seems like an entire industry about asking the right questions and finding the best ways to get answers to those questions. It’s something that doesn’t sound too complex until you really dig into it. Then it becomes very complex.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #51: Adtech thrives, a #boulderwin and Colorado gets a new CIO

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!

With my blog approaching on year of consistency I’ve been toying with the idea of adding some advertising to cover some costs so this week’s headlines are perfect!

Next week will be my 52nd CTW post. That’s one year of weekly posts! I feel a little strange approaching this milestone because half of me wants to make it a big deal, but the other half knows this is still just the beginning. I’m definitely going to have to do a recap post about it though to figure out if I’m still doing what I meant to do.

Colorado Tech Weekly #37: Accolades, Innovation and Internships

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 is the 5th CTW post where all 10 stories are about Colorado. I wonder if I could do that every time. I bet I could! However so much of what goes on outside Colorado affects our industry here I can’t just focus on our awesome state alone. Maybe I should consider doing a local edition and a national edition? I’ll think on that later. It’s finals week for me this week so I’ll think on it later.

Speaking of later, next week I get to volunteer for CTA’s C-Level at Mile High on March 6th. It’s the biggest, coolest, geekiest, techiest way to meet some of Colorado’s top-level technology decision makers by bidding for their time, literally! Here are a few tips and tricks for winning those auctions. Hope to see you there!
