Colorado Tech Weekly #269: “Blockchain”, “Cybersecurity”, “Diversity” Are Not Just Buzzwords Here

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!

Buzzwords in technology can be annoying as they are exciting. They are annoying because they are often used as click-bait and by people who don’t understand the buzzwords but who really want to make some money off of them.

Looking at this week’s headlines, I’m proud to see that while our community is covered in buzzwords, these headlines are backed by people putting in real time, effort and money into turning their innovative ideas into success. That’s amazing!

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #120: TeamSnap, Wayin, Denver Startup Week

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!

The organizations mentioned in my headline have taken a few of the things I have done and made them successful and awesome. I helped found a figure skating club. TeamSnap would have been an amazing tool for the club and probably still would be. I’ve spent the past 2+ years combing social media for people and organizations related to the Colorado tech community. Wayin could probably find that in 10 minutes. And I spent 2 years struggling to run my own business. Pay attention to the right people at Denver Startup Week and you can learn every lesson I learned plus 10 more within a week. I guarantee you it will also be more fun.

I have an interview for a promotion tomorrow. Wish me luck!
