Colorado Tech Weekly #297: Full Body Sound, Great Events and Buzzwords Made Real

Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning (Unless Monday was a holiday. I hope you had a good President’s Day!)!

There’s a lot that I like about this week’s news and events. One thing I look forward to doing on the new ColoradoTechWeekly.com is doing features on companies, people and organizations. To get that started I got to visit with Allison and Griffin of Full Body Sound at SolderWorks in Westminster last week and I got to feel music and it was pretty cool! They will be at the New Tech Colorado event in Boulder on the 21st.

Speaking of events, I like seeing combo events like the Boulder React Coding Night also on the 21st and my work would be directly impacted by the Visual Studio and Azure meetups too!

But then there’s the news! I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before about buzzwords in Colorado. They’re not just buzzwords! This week we have blockchain, diversity, security and autonomous robots! And this is just the top 10 stories! I love it!

Only 3 more Colorado Tech Weekly posts will be on ScottPantall.com. Starting on March 11 (if I’ve done my math correctly) you’ll be able to find them on the new and improved ColoradoTechWeekly.com.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #296: Webroot Gets Acquired and Colorado Tech Continues to Grow

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

I’ve been doing this series for almost 5 years and in that time the already thriving Colorado tech community has continued unprecedented growth. When I started at Infinicept, we had 5 employees and when we went out for a company lunch on Friday we went with 23 people!

It would be really easy for me to take our growth for granted but it is important that we not only stay humble about our growth but also that we do so responsibly and with kindness.

Only 4 more Colorado Tech Weekly posts will be on ScottPantall.com. Starting on March 11 (if I’ve done my math correctly) you’ll be able to find them on the new and improved ColoradoTechWeekly.com.

Have a great week!

I spent this weekend with my wife in Steamboat Springs celebrating our 8th anniversary. It was great to get out of the Denver area and spend some time without deadlines or schedules. I think my mind is still there.

Regardless of where my mind is, there are still some great news and events this week. Have a great week!
