Proudly Partnering With Go Code Colorado

Proudly Partnering With Go Code Colorado

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.”

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.
