Colorado Tech Weekly #213: Local Tech Podcasts and Python Events

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!

Just over a year ago I tried adding a podcast to this blog series and found out that doing podcasts is hard. If your favorite podcast is updated inconsistently, it’s because the creator has realized just how hard it is to create and post podcast episodes. This week I wanted to point out 2 great local tech podcasts:

  • Colorado TechCast: This podcast is hosted by local tech enthusiast, Trapper Little, and  just started with great interviews by local tech community members. Trapper asked me to guest-host the show and although I REALLY wanted to, I just don’t have the time to participate and that sucks.
  • Turing School Podcast: This is a great listen for anyone who is looking to get their first job as a software developer. Even though the podcast is geared towards Turing students, it’s a great resource for all of us. Even this Computer Science student.

There are a few other good local tech podcasts, but if I start trying to list all of them you’ll never get to read the news. I’ve highlighted a few Python meetups this week. I have an AI course coming up in a few months so I’m curious to try out Python. It is a language used for AI, right?

Have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #49: Incoming jobs from Lockheed, Sendgrid, Layer3 and other good 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!

There is a LOT of good news bouncing around this square state and I have a feeling with Boulder Startup Week just wrapping up, Aspen’s and Fort Collins’ Startup Weeks just about to start and Denver Startup Week not too far away that the good news is gonna keep coming. Is there a Startup Week in southern Colorado? There should be.

Also I recently just found out how cool Evernote is. It’s especially cool for a blog like this one. If you have any tips on how to make the best of Evernote, please pass them along. Thanks!
