I've had some friends and acquaintances inquire about the idea of "code bootcamps" in Denver. I'm vaguely aware of them, but haven't really looked at them too closely. I've had some great experiences working with graduates of a bootcamp program in LA and wanted to review the Denver options to see what's available and how to hire from them.
These flowers were suggested by Denver Botanic Gardens as varieties that do well in Colorado and create blooms all year long to help pollinators. They were selected by monitoring for which varieties bees are particularly drawn to. I searched and found the local Rocky Mountain companies Botanical Interests and High Country Gardens sells seeds for many of them.
As a gardener in Denver I've heard of worm castings as a potential soil supplement/fertilizer before. I've been composting with a traditional aerobic/thermophilic system for a while. The research I've done recently is that worm castings or vermicompost is a much better fertilizer than traditional compost:
Disasters happen. When they do, are you ready to handle it with grace? In general people get good at handling events that they experience regularly, but high-risk disasters are managed so they don't happen often. It's not every day that power goes out at the primary data center, but when it does you want to be sure that your auto-fail-over actually works. You want to be sure your backups actually work.However, testing disaster preparedness often takes too much time time and creates little organizational value.
My schedule is pretty flexible: 7 to 5:30 most days.
Monday busy from 10:30 to 11:30.
Tuesday busy from 7 to 9 and 4 to 5:30.
Wednesday busy from 4:00 to 5:30.
Thursday busy from 8 to 9:00, 10:30 to 11:30 and 4:00 to 5:30.
Friday generally free.
You could also call this "Free Nexus5 if you switch from AT&T or Verizon." Here's a comparison of the plans and how I arrived at the idea of "Free" Nexus 5.
|Phone purchase price||Subsidized $200 every 2 years||No subsidy|
|Monthly cost for 2 lines||$190||$90|
|Data||Unlimited originally, switched to 2GB for the same rate||Unlimited (2.5GB cap, after that 3G service)|
This chart shows how much money both of these plans cost. I used a MotoX as the subsidized phone since it is similar in specs to the Nexus 5.
For our 2-phone-household, we had been spending $4,658 in a 2 year cycle compared to our annual of $2858. Both of those numbers feel pretty high, but at least with StraightTalk we're saving $1,800 in a 2 year cycle. Source data for that chart is in this spreadsheet
Let me say that again: $1,800 savings in a 2 year cycle! We could actually buy a new Nexus phone (or similar) every year and still save money compared to Verizon.
