Colorado Tech Weekly #274: Tech is Taking Over Denver

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!

Growth, expansion, buy-outs, acquisitions. These words have been constant in the Colorado tech community for last the past 5 years and it doesn’t show any sign of stopping. Denver especially has been seeing a lot of growth in tech companies and jobs. Will Denver become known as a tech city in the same way we think of San Francisco or Seattle? OR are we so excited to talk about exciting growth in an exciting field that we’re losing focus on other great industries in Denver? Or maybe a little bit of both.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #248: Big or Small, New or Old, Colorado Tech Makes News

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!

One of the things I enjoy about doing this blog series is placing news about big, well-known companies like Amazon, Google and Level3 next to new or less well-known companies like Conga, Redeam and Automox. It’s important to me to point out that you don’t need to be big or well-known to make Colorado tech better and bigger. You just have to do cool things and tell people about it. That’s it!

Speaking of cool things, I’m done with schoolwork! No more. Nada! Done! Fin! No mas! I don’t graduate until May but all I have left to do for school is wait for the ceremony so I can wear the cap and gown. Woohoo!

 

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #244: Not All Hard Work Gets a Headline

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!

Last week, as much as I was looking forward to going, I had to skip out on going to the Go Code Colorado Kickoff event. Instead I stayed home and worked on the specifications and UX design for my app that I am creating for my capstone project.

My project will be a Software-as-a-Service web app for comic book stores to manage their subscribers (or “pull lists” as they’re called). I’m excited to make it, but it’s a lot of work especially when the class is only 8 weeks long. Add to the fact that my new job that I love involves me working all day and not just waiting for bad things to happen, I don’t have a lot of time.

My headline for this week is my reminder that just because someone, or some organization, is not active online or posting news releases doesn’t mean they’re not doing cool things. Doing cool things requires a lot of work that no one sees.

Have a great week!
