Colorado Tech Weekly #174: An Ironic Miscalculation About Time

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!

I am trying to get this post published just before it’s scheduled to be emailed to those of you who get this post in email. I hope that happens.

My grand plan has been to go to school, do my own projects, go to meetups and continue to work full time to get my first software developer job. It’s a long term plan that I implemented before I published Colorado Tech Weekly #1. I made a miscalculation though, in order to find and take advantage of new opportunities I need time. I have not given myself any time to be open to new opportunities while searching high and low for new opportunities.

A little bit ironic, don’t ya think? (Great, now the song is stuck in my head)

Colorado Tech Weekly #103: It’s fun watching the people you admire succeed

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!

Congratulations to Rally Software for being acquired. When I first started reading about Colorado software development Rally Software was one of the first companies I heard about as a “Place you want to be.”

Congratulations to J.B. Holston for his appointment as a Dean at DU. I consider J.B. Holston to be one of the leaders of the Colorado tech startup community. I’ve only had brief encounters with him online, but he is always welcoming and willing to listen.

I love watching the people I admire succeed. It gives me hope and motivates me to continue working.
