Colorado Tech Weekly #33: Volunteering, court battles and new things
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local events every Monday morning!
I don’t remember making any New Year’s resolutions about volunteering, but if I had I’d be doing a great job following through on those resolutions. Last week I mentioned that I volunteered to help run and promote Colorado Technology Association’s C-Level at Mile High. If you’re looking to get your foot in the door of Colorado’s tech industry, I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to volunteer for this event.
In following through on a New Year’s resolution that I DID make, I went to a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) meeting at my daughter’s elementary school last week. I ended up volunteering to help monitor the computer lab after school on Tuesdays. I’m excited to help kids with their online homework while I work on my own.
