Colorado Tech Weekly #191: Sometimes Tech is Too Broad of a Topic

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 a theme in the headlines I share, but I also like highlighting all the different areas that are covered in the Colorado tech community. If there’s a way to make ones and zeros do a thing, it’s being done here in Colorado. Even better, it’s done in an inclusive, supportive community. It’s just one of the reasons I look forward to being able to contribute to the Colorado tech community full time.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #183: Holiday Parties and Company Insights

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 love the lists that Jess Ryan does at BuiltinColorado because it gives us a peek into the inner workings of Colorado tech startups that we would not otherwise see. My other favorite resource is company blogs themselves. I love seeing what makes tech employees and their companies proud to be them.

Enjoy the insights and the upcoming tech holiday parties. I’m sure there will be even more next week. Have a great week!
