Colorado Tech Weekly #245: Discover. Learn. Create. Repeat.
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 Monday was a holiday. I hope you had a great President’s Day)!
I’m almost 3 months into my career as a software developer. Every day I wonder what I would tell someone who wants to become a developer. I’ve decided the best way to describe the job of a developer is with the four words in the headline.
As a student, whether in a school or learning by ourselves, that process is guided by instructors or ourselves. In a work environment, what we discover and create is usually defined by our clients but the process is still the same.
Have a great week!
