Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Today officially starts Denver Startup Week! I have purposely left DSW events out of this post for two reasons. The first reason is that the DSW website is an excellent and easy to use resource for all things DSW.
The second reason is that I'm a little bitter about DSW. Last week I was all excited to spend Tuesday downtown at panels, meeting people and participating in the Cognizant Quick Left hackathon however life had other plans for me. My house needs foundation repairs so instead of spending Tuesday meeting you cool people in real life I will spend it moving everything out of my basement to get my basement slab repaired.
Things don't always go as planned but they often work out for the best. Have a great week!
