Colorado Tech Weekly #125: Things improved, soapbox avoided and GO VOTE!
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Tomorrow is ELECTION DAY! I know there’s no large-scale elections, but honestly the local elections impact our lives more than the big ones. I could easily jump on a soapbox about this but I’ll cut myself off before I get going. However, if you live in Jefferson County and still haven’t decided who to vote for, contact me and I’ll help you out.
I am homework free for the rest of the year, so look forward to some project updates, new projects and general blog posts about learning programming. I’m looking forward to expanding my voice on this site, instead of just churn out a top 10 list every week. That’s not to say I don’t like my top 10 lists. I do. They look like this…
