Colorado Tech Weekly #79: 10 Different Areas of Tech
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Sometimes I try to write headlines that summarize the 10 articles I feature. Most of the time, that’s really hard to do. This week is no different. Everything from video games to satellite surveillance, cloud computing to education and beyond. It’s amazing how many things technology touches and how much of that happens here in Colorado.
I just finished 2 courses at Regis. That doesn’t mean I stop learning now that class is over, I just get to choose what it is I learn. Trying to narrow it down is tough. Have a happy Monday!
