Colorado Tech Weekly #267: Big Names, Small Names and New Names

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 my favorite things about doing this blog is putting the news about the big name companies next to the lesser known companies because big tech news is big tech news regardless of the size of the company.  I am also constantly surprised to find Colorado tech companies that I don’t know about. It really amazes me to think about how big our tech community really is.

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #258: When Turning Ideas into Tech, The Details Matter

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!

This week’s headlines have me thinking about details. As a business-person or entrepreneur you are going to tell someone with some technical knowledge “I want to do a thing” and they are going to ask you “Yeah, but how?” which makes me want to ask: At which point is it best to answer the question “Yeah, but how?” At the project management level? UX level? When acquiring resources? When creating the programming?

When is it best to answer that question? Easy! It’s at every level! The more you’re willing to answer questions about the details, the better work you’ll get out of every step of your process.

On the other side, I don’t think it’s ever a bad idea as a developer, project manager, or anyone involved in the implementation process to ask “Yeah, but how?” It’s important for everyone involved to be on the same page.

Have a great week!
