This past Tuesday I attended the seventh annual CU New Venture Challenge. NVC gives startups the opportunity to pitch their businesses to the Boulder community for a chance to win cash prizes. Before the championship, the startups build their business ideas in an entrepreneurial flight simulator through events, workshops and mentorship.
Since day 1, Quick Left has participated in Boulder Startup Week. And as with the finer things in life that get better with age (wine, cheese, leather boots, cast iron, medical advancements, wisdom, Daniel Craig), so does the 5th annual week-long affair that is startup week. This year, I stepped up my game and volunteered to be the Adventure Track leader for the week in addition to our normal, over-the-top involvement as a company. From hackfests and panels to office chair races and celebrity yoga, there's something for everyone.
There are so many JS frameworks! It can get tiring to keep up to date with them all.
Joking aside, when it comes to choosing frameworks for a project, emerging frameworks just haven't been battle-tested enough for me to recommend to clients in most cases.
But like much of the community, I feel pretty confident in the future of React. It's well documented, makes reasoning about data easy, and it's performant.
Clutch, a Washington, DC-based B2B research and review firm that identifies top service and software firms in the technology and marketing industry, published an update identifying leading web design and web development firms based in the Pacific Northwest. The research leverages the proprietary Leaders Matrix methodology, mapping each firm's focus on web design, web development and E-commerce development against their ability to deliver world-class results for their clients.
Last week the Marketing team attended the 2015 Women Inspiring Leadership Development (WILD) Summit, a conference that brings together women from various industries who share their experiences and inspire each other to lead. I cannot tell you how many inspirational and passionate women were at this conference! From students jump starting their careers, to women who have been in the workforce but are looking to pivot, to seasoned leaders whose actions have afforded younger women the opportunities we are so fortunate to hold today, every woman had encouraging advice for each person in the room.
