Colorado Tech Weekly #127: Mostly Boulder, Mostly Wednesday
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
5 of this week’s headlines mention Boulder companies. 5 of the upcoming events listed happen on Wednesday and I’m not sure which one I would choose to go to because they all look like great events!
Learn what Microsoft is doing with CONNECT(); // 2015? Make better Android apps with Denver Droids? Learn how to actually deploy a web app with FRPUG? Figure out how to sell myself at Galvanize? Or get a little bit of everything with Tech Confluence? I have no idea which one I would go to. This is such a nice problem to have.
