Colorado Tech Weekly #102: Winning the Go Code Colorado Challenge, Visiting Denver Comic Con… Oh and Colorado Tech News
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning (Unless it’s a holiday. I hope you had a great Memorial Day)!
This weekend my wife and I got to experience our first ever Comic Con at Denver Comic Con thanks to 2 passes I won from the CTA C-Level event (Thanks for that, by the way)! It was overwhelming, amazing, fun, crazy and amazing (yes, I know I said amazing twice). I loved that Denver Comic Con featured local game development companies and maker spaces with their own section. I would list them all, but I’m afraid I would leave some out. It was so inspiring talking to Colorado authors, artists and developers who get to make a living being creative everyday.
I could go on and on about the Go Code Colorado Challenge and Denver Comic Con and I probably will in separate blog posts, but you didn’t open this post to read about that so without further ado…
