A net gain in employment in Colorado tech this week. It’s never fun when I have to justify the good news but nevertheless it’s good news. It’s one of the main reasons I do this newsletter. I want to keep track of how tech companies in Colorado are performing. Between the news about the Colorado Springs companies as well as the tech talent pipeline update from CTA, it’s nice to see we’re doing well.

Colorado Tech Weekly #106: Is there an area of tech that Colorado does not do well?

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 short answer is “No.” Every once in a while the headlines I compile point out how many different ways Colorado is involved in technology. In this week’s headlines alone we have wireless tech, social media, hardware, startups and 3-D printing. It’s a little mind blowing to think of all the things that are included in tech in Colorado. Then when I try to think of all the money and all the different kinds of people involved my brain shorts out and I have to stare at the wall for a few minutes to let it reboot.

Colorado Tech Weekly #50: Growth, more growth and an Airlife app

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 work full-time as an emergency dispatcher, so the Airlife app story got me super excited! There needs to be more out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to technology and emergency services. If only there was some sort of event where creative minds got together to try to improve government services in Colorado…. OH WAIT! Hack4Colorado is this weekend!

If you are planning on participating in Hack4Colorado and you want some cool public safety ideas, let me know. I’ll give you all sorts of ideas. Unfortunately I can’t be there. I’ll be staying up all night waiting for 911 calls instead.

Colorado Tech Weekly #39: Taking it one step at a time in awesome Colorado

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 think it’s about time I stop being surprised by the amount of tech news in Colorado. This is the 3rd week in a row that all 10 stories are from Colorado and I love it!

I had a blast volunteering for C-Level @ A Mile High on Thursday! It was amazing to talk to, and work with, so many people who have already achieved milestones in their careers that I can only dream about right now. It’s like running a marathon where the path doubles back on itself. I got to briefly see people who are way ahead of me and I want to be there! I gotta take one step at a time though. I’ll get there eventually.
