Colorado Tech Weekly #234: Revolar lives up to their name, I start my first day and all the December tech events

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

Last week I happily learned that “revolar” is Spanish for “to take flight again.” Luckily, since I started this blog I have seen very few good companies go away and I was honestly heartbroken to hear about Revolar closing their doors, so I am excited to share the news that they are back in business!

Speaking of exciting news, today is my first day of my new career! I have no idea what my work or my life will be like in the immediate future and I’m super excited about that. Wish me luck!

As always, I only listed 10 tech events, but it seems like the first week of December is when all the monthly tech groups are doing their meetings to get them out of the way before the holidays so if you’re looking for a tech meetup this month, it’s probably happening within the next 2 weeks. I’m tempted by the Misty Robotics hackathon. If you remember, Misty Robotics is the serious-robot spin-off from fun-toy-robot company, Sphero. I’m a big fan of them as well.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #182: Getting Geared Up for 2017

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 like when I can find themes in the weekly headlines that I share. This week it seems as if most of Colorado tech is ramping up to get things done and announced before enjoying the end-of-the-year holidays. Once again I was faced with way more than 10 events I wanted to share. I really do need to find another way to share those. Speaking of the end of the year I should probably review my 2016 predictions and start brewing my 2017 predictions.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #181: Holidays Don’t Slow Colorado Tech

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 thought with the Thanksgiving holiday last week and the upcoming holidays that it would be more difficult to find Colorado tech news and events. I was wrong. Dead wrong. Sometimes I really like being wrong.

On that note, I won’t get a developer job before the end of the year (I’d love to be wrong about this too).

Colorado Tech Weekly #118: The Work That Causes the Headlines

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!

Every once in a while I have to remind myself that most of the news behind these headlines are the culmination of months or years of work. The awards, acquisitions, mergers and events are the headlines but the important part is the work and time put into those events long before they become headlines.
