Colorado Tech Weekly #96: My Team is a GoCodeColorado Finalist!
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
I signed up for GoCodeColorado because I like the spirit of the competition and just to try out my programming skills outside of homework. I figured it would be a good first experience, a good way to see what a hackathon is like. I ended up in a dynamic, diverse team that is one of 2 finalist groups from the Denver GoCodeColorado challenge!
Our idea is called MentorMatter. The site will make it easy for college students to connect with potential industry mentors. If you want to see some of the reasons why this idea is such a success for Colorado, just check out the first 2 top technology headlines.
If I thought I was excited and scared last week, that was nothing compared to how I feel now. Thanks for the good luck last week! WE WON!
