Colorado Tech Weekly #124: 3 Recaps, 2 Twitter-Related Headlines and 1 Set of Layoffs
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
4 out of the past 6 Colorado Tech Weekly’s have had headlines about tech companies laying off employees, but I have not heard a lot from the tech community about it.
I think it’s because A) the amazing growth seen this year in Colorado tech is bound for some leveling out, so it doesn’t seem as scary and B) there’s enough opportunities here that laid off employees aren’t without a job for long. I’m not all that satisfied with B. Regardless, I feel for those who have lost their jobs.
On a brighter note, check out the first 3 stories! As much as I like hearing what Colorado tech companies are doing, I love hearing directly from the developers in the industry I want to work in.
