Colorado Tech Weekly #99: Is Colorado the best place for women in 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!
It was almost a year ago that I bragged about the great network of IT women in Colorado. There are some great groups and inspiring leaders here and many of them are women.
This week’s headlines and events are just a nice reminder. When I get serious about my job search, I hope I can find a friend to search with so I can go to some of those great WomenWhoCode events like the interviewing panel highlighted in the Events section. Speaking of helpful, inspiring people, this Sunday is Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
