Proudly Partnering With Go Code Colorado

Have you heard of Go Code Colorado? If so, bear with me as I give a quick overview. If not, you’re going to want to pay attention, because this is really cool.

Go Code Colorado
is a state-wide software coding challenge that takes place over a six-week period. This initiative is championed by the Colorado Secretary of State’s Business Intelligence Center, and supported by the Governor’s Office, the Statewide Internet Portal Authority, the Governor’s Office of Information Technology, and the Office of Economic Development and International Trade.  In the challenge, developer and entrepreneur teams compete to build apps intended to solve business problems and grow the state’s economy.

As a longtime sponsor of a variety of local software clubs and users groups, we’re embedded in the Colorado coding community, so being part of Go Code Colorado was a no-brainer. But we wanted to do more than just give money to this awesome initiative – we wanted to make an impact on the participants that lasts beyond these six weeks.

Kelby, our founder and CEO, will mentor a team at the Go Code Colorado event on April 5, 2014. After the final challenge is over, he’ll provide a training opportunity for winning team. I asked Kelby why he felt mentoring and offering training was important. “We’re passionate about instilling knowledge and help others grow as programmers,” he said. “Being a Go Code Colorado mentor and providing training to the winners are great opportunities to do this right in our own backyard.”

The kick-off for Go Code Colorado was Wednesday, March 19. This weekend is Challenge Weekend– teams will form, challenge statements will be selected, and apps will be started. We’re excited to see how the teams meet the challenges, and the final results of their hard work. We are proud to be part of this event in its inaugural year.
