Colorado Tech Weekly #247: Straight From Colorado Tech Companies To You. Also JavaScript Events.

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’m proud of Colorado’s tech journalists and I enjoy being able to amplify their work, but I also like that technology allows us to hear thoughts, opinions and views from companies straight from the companies themselves. This week has a lot of that which makes me happy.

There’s also a lot of events coming up that focus on JavaScript. JavaScript does not make me happy. However my opinion of JavaScript should not affect our opinion of these events. I’d go if I had the time. Maybe they would help me see JavaScript in a different light.

On a side note, this week is my last week of schoolwork! It’s been 4.5 years of work to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and I’m one week away from accomplishing it. Today is also my wife’s birthday who has been amazingly supportive during the whole time and who I can’t thank enough. I love you, Corrine. Happy birthday!

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #147: Learning Takes 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!

This week a few of the articles have to do with new developers learning programming. Turing adds a new Front-End development program. Businesses are still worried about talent shortages. And the BuiltinColorado article asking 7 local developers about their learning journey is great!

One of my favorite answers from the BuiltinColorado article is from Joanne Cheng, “It takes a lot of time to learn what you need to know.” It’s difficult as a developer to find out what is important to learn and that’s even before you start learning the important things. Then once you have it figured out, it all changes and you get to start over again!

Podcast Version: No podcast version this week.
