Colorado Tech Weekly #35: Developer trends. NoCo makes news. Amazon tax revisited?
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local events every Monday morning!
“NoCo” is trendy shorthand for Northern Colorado which incorporates everything north of Denver, south of Wyoming and not called Boulder. Boulder is not NoCo. Boulder is Boulder. It’s always fun when I can shed some light on companies outside of the Boulder/Denver area.
