Colorado Tech Weekly #103: It’s fun watching the people you admire succeed
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Congratulations to Rally Software for being acquired. When I first started reading about Colorado software development Rally Software was one of the first companies I heard about as a “Place you want to be.”
Congratulations to J.B. Holston for his appointment as a Dean at DU. I consider J.B. Holston to be one of the leaders of the Colorado tech startup community. I’ve only had brief encounters with him online, but he is always welcoming and willing to listen.
I love watching the people I admire succeed. It gives me hope and motivates me to continue working.
