We’re extremely excited to announce that Name.com has partnered with Galvanize to bring coding education to aspiring developers across the U.S.! We’re hosting Learn to Code workshops in six different cities every month to help those who are interested in web development learn the skills they need for a successful career.
We asked 3 mom bloggers for tips on how to be awesome online
If you’ve been keeping up with the Name.com Twitter feed, you may have noticed a whole lot of excitement going on at our office at the end of last week. We invited three Denver-based mom bloggers to hang out with us for the day and shoot an upcoming video—and it was a blast!
Emily Vanek, editor in chief of ColoradoMoms.com; Sarah Vickers, the founder of MooseandTater.com; and Daria Drago, the project manager turned blogger behind MominManagement.com joined us for a day full of filming, pampering, and chatting about how to find internet success.
In the Bay Area? Look out for #ILookLikeAnEngineer
If you’re from the Bay Area, you may have noticed the Name.com logo on a series of very special billboards. We are proud to say that we are a sponsor of the #ILookLikeAnEngineer movement!
How can taking a selfie make a difference? We answered that question yesterday when we volunteered at Day 3 of Denver Gives week.
Armed with our cellphones and some KIND bars to give away, we headed to the 16th Street Mall to help promote the #GiveofyourSELFIE campaign, which encourages people everywhere to raise awareness of causes or charities they support.
We recently asked you delightful folks to participate in a survey to help us understand your thoughts on New Domains and how they’re being used. Thanks to you, we received thousands of responses that let us know what you really think about New Domains. (Thanks survey-takers—you’re the real MVPs!)
Because we’re huge nerds over here and think surveys are cool, we thought it was only fair to share what we learned.
We’re going to be gloriously nerdy (and probably overheated at times) at Yes and Yes Yes in Palm Springs from this Friday to Monday.
It’s not very often that a tutorial comes along that tells you exactly how to raise money to build your dreams, but Ryan Angilly does just that with his story of Ramen and the Angel List. Ramen is Ramen.is, Angilly’s company that he was able to fund through AngelList.co. His presentation was a hit at Boulder Startup Week and we feel is an informative step-by-step to startup success.
If you like Colorado already, just wait until we turn over a cache of our open data to more than 160 smart people. It’s Go Code Colorado, and it’s a brilliant bunch of hackers working on behalf of the government to turn their statistical assets into a golden opportunity. In only its second year, over thirty teams are competing for one of three $25,000 contracts to make Colorado’s business, transportation, government and education function more efficiently. But they have to work for this prize. Go Code spans six weeks, five cities, and the kind of coding intensity that funds the caffeine industry. These are big issues, too, with beasts like Colorado’s traffic problems screeching for solutions. Can a springtime hackathon provide answers on how to be more responsive, intelligent and efficient? Not only is the state of Colorado banking on it, but so are the dozens of businesses who have contributed cash and product to make Go Code go.
Name.com is a sponsor for Boulder Startup Week. The pressure is immense. This is no ordinary tech gathering. Boulder Startup Week is the annual culmination of so much energy and so many ideas that there are over 120 events to try and capture it all. And it’s in Boulder, which is becoming better known as Silicon Mountain. This is big. So big that it can be a bit overwhelming.
Here’s a quick guide of places where we’ll be (with free name.com domains, stickers, t-shirts and love.)
It’s arguably impossible to scale a product or business without building a community. Building a strong community early on does two great things for your business: (1) It helps you build traction because early users often become the best product evangelists. (2) It position your business for long-term success because your community will want to see you grow and succeed.
