Colorado Tech Weekly #30: Marijuana? CES? Drones? Colorado has a little bit of everything
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local events every Monday morning!
It’s the first Monday of the new year, which means it’s back-to-work time. With Christmas and New Years Day being in the middle of the week, I can understand if you’re finding it hard to focus.
Looking at the headlines this week, it’s impossible for me to come up with a theme for the week. Colorado has a little bit of everything going on. It’s fun to be a part of.
My classes at Regis start back up today. This semester I’m taking Control Structures and a class on Influence and Motivation. Maybe I can figure out how to influence my code to do what I mean and not just what I say.
