Colorado Tech Weekly #255: AR, VR and RL

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!

When I was looking for my first developer job (it was just last year, but it’s nice to say it was in the past) I was always asked the seemingly helpful question of “What kind of development do you want to do?” and as someone who had never worked in software development I really didn’t know the answer. I am currently working in the credit card payments industry doing C# and .NET development and I’m enjoying it and that never would’ve been my answer (mostly cuz I knew nothing about the credit card payment process).

AR and VR sound like a lot of fun though. Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #152: Finding Opportunities in Colorado is Easy

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!

Finding opportunities is easy. Taking advantage of opportunities? That’s the difficult part.

With achievement of my degree within sight and a few projects completed it is time for me to take job searching seriously. Last night I started trying to figure out how to get paid for doing something I love. I looked at a few online job postings but this does not seem like a good strategy considering the network of awesome people I’ve cultivated in the last 152 weeks. Then there’s the question of “What is a good strategy?” Should I put my head down and charge at a dream job or should I keep my eye out for other software developer jobs? My heart wants to go for the dream job but my heart also really wants to get out of this job so I can work as a developer full time as soon as possible!

If you have any job searching advice, I’d love to hear it. If you just have a job offer, I’d love to hear that even more!
