Colorado Tech Weekly #241: Blockchains and Headquarters
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
The headlines aren’t usually the most interesting story. Yes, Bitcoin’s value is very interesting and the Amazon HQ2 story is fascinating but when I look past the big headlines I see the stories that have more meaning.
This week we have 4 companies that want to move their headquarters, or at least a big part of their operation, to Colorado that aren’t named Amazon. We also have 2 meetups coming up that talk about blockchain which is most well known as the technology behind cryptocurrencies but is way more interesting because it is capable of being so much more!
Infinicept is hiring for a mid-senior level Software Engineer! Come work with me and my team! If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll help you out.
Have a great week!
