Whether it is taking a risk, learning something new or just daring to believe in yourself when nobody else will, history has always favored the brave. From authors who consistently make the New York Times Best-Sellers List to epic guys in history books (and even a YouTube sensation who skyrocketed to super-stardom), here are 4 risk-takers who prove that in order to make history… you have to make the future notice you.
The field of technology is an exciting industry and full of life-long opportunities. In a time when many other industries are static or even shrinking, it almost seems as if the field of information technology is just getting started. For those looking for a satisfying and fulfilling career, that certainly is music to their ears. As with any other field though, there are many different types of working environments available and what is a good fit for one individual might not necessarily be a good fit for another. In order for you to get the job you really want, it is advisable to do a little self-analysis work before you determine the right work environment for you.
PC, consoles, handhelds and mobile. With the right core of coding skills, game design on any and all of these platforms is available to you. A career as a game designer has potential trajectories you may not have even thought of, however.
When you're starting out to learn coding, what language should you learn first? There's no universally accepted answer, but Ruby on Rails offers a strong case.

It’s been over a month since I’ve written my last post. And quite frankly, I regret it. The truth is that my last month has been extremely busy. I worked on a couple of projects at DaVinci Coders, had some scheduling issues at my job, and worked through some personal difficulties. But those aren’t good excuses.
Recently, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the last month where I’ve worked on two projects for DaVinci Coders. The first, Shift Scheduler, is an app that allows people to conveniently manage employees schedules. The second, Tracker Request, uses the Pivotal Tracker and GitHub APIs to create a one-stop-shop for managing projects. I want to recap the important bits from my last month at DaVinci Coders.
An online job-hunting platform dedicated to helping those without college degrees find skills-based jobs, officially launched Thursday in Colorado, the first state to have access to the service.
Called Skillful, the service combines online tools and on-the-ground resources to connect job-hunters to jobs and training. It also works with employers to offer tools and advisors to broaden their talent pool by creating skills-based job descriptions.
The DaVinci Institute has office space available to small - midsize tech companies and startups in order to spur growth in the Westminster Colorado tech industry. Their coding bootcamp is a great resource for these companies to find junior level developer talent and help continue their training with real world experience.
