Colorado Tech Weekly #197: I think JavaScript might be catching on

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

Only 3 events listed this week are not directly related to JavaScript and I’ll bet you can find at least one person at each of those events who is capable of talking your ear off about it.

JavaScript and everything around it shows off what can happen when developers think, “What if…?” both good and bad. It’s also my reminder that, at least for me, learning languages is fairly easy but learning how and when to use frameworks is much more difficult.

Have a great week!
