Colorado Tech Weekly #54: $53.1M of funding, some rare bad news and the best network of IT women in the country
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
I’m excited about the strong, growing network of IT women in Colorado. The National Center for Women & Information Technology is based in Boulder. CTA’s Women in Tech event was a big success. There is a GDI (Girl Develop It) Boulder chapter and a newly launched GDI Fort Collins chapter (but no GDI Denver chapter yet?). Things are looking good for my 10 year old daughter who wants to follow in, and improve upon, her father’s footsteps.
