Colorado Tech Weekly #116: Mobile Phones, Mobile People and IoT
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 starting the second week of my Assembly course this week and this coming weekend I’m lucky enough to participate in the Pebble Rocks Boulder Hackathon. I’ve noticed I seem to be more comfortable with lower-level languages so I’m pretty darn excited for this upcoming week.
The creative potential of IoT is amazing and I’m curious to see how I feel about it after the hackathon. Regardless of how I feel after this weekend, I definitely need to visit SparkFun’s Home of Tomorrow sometime soon. That looks really cool.
