Colorado Tech Weekly #339: An Accidental Table Full of Techies
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Here’s a little bit of behind the scenes of Colorado Tech Weekly. I do the majority of the work on these posts while sitting in a Starbucks in Lakewood on Sunday mornings.
Today across from me are 2 Computer Science students helping each other out with some school-related Java programming and next to me are Eric, a UNIX administrator, and Bob, a retired electrical engineer, playing chess.
Just by saying “Hi” we ended up discussing object-oriented vs functional programming, PHP, C#, devops, scripting, Arduinos and C++. It was like an accidental tech meetup. It was great!
Have a great week!
