Minnesota Morning | SWAT Solutions Open House, Twin Cities Startup Week 2017 And 10 Articles To Read


Minneapolis Winter Weather Forecast


Yes… a photo of the extended forecast. If you give me temperatures in mid February that start with a “4” or “5” I am going to celebrate it. Sure we need some snow or rain to get us out of a minor deficit but I’ll take what the next week or two are going to bring.

Minnesota Morning | Scott Burns, Target Takeoff And Enterprise Rising


Downtown Minneapolis

 

Really sad news this week with the passing of Ray Christensen. Ray was the voice of Gopher football and basketball and his voice is engrained on my brain. I remember jumping into leaf piles with a football listening to games. I was in my cousin’s basement playing floor hockey in 1986 when the Gophers won at Michigan. I had the TV on mute with the radio on when the Gophers upset #1 Penn State.

All of the basketball games... 1,309 of them and 510 football games. I was trying to wrap my brain around how many people over a 50 year career heard this man.

Conversation With A Ruby Developer… Should I let Search Firms Float My Resume Around?


Minnesota IT Jobs

Yesterday I had a phone call with a Ruby Developer who is currently in Silicon Valley and looking to move to the Midwest. They are highly skilled, easy to work with, highly recommended and from this region. Specifically they are looking for a company in Minneapolis or Chicago.

They asked me a curious question…

Many of the search firm recruiters are asking if they can float my resume around for me. I don’t have a network in those cities so it seems convenient but I think there are negatives to this too. Right?

My reply…

YES!!!

Minnesota Morning | Clay Collins At Enterprise.MN And Target Kills Goldfish


Lake Minnetonka, #LakeLife


After 13+ years living in the North Loop of Downtown Minneapolis I am trading my #CityLife photos for 2 years to this #LakeLife view of Lake Minnetonka. Now that I have a commute I’ll have to do a much better job of scheduling my work days. Well worth it.


Clay Collins At Enterprise.MN

Minnesota Morning | Minnesota Engineering Blog, Minnesota Q4 2016 Venture Funding And Snoopy And Charlie Brown For Sale


Mississippi River, Downtown Minneapolis


The photo above was from this past weekend on the Hennepin Avenue Bridge looking east. It was a very calm and quiet evening in Downtown Minneapolis and it was good to take a few minutes and do some “reflecting”.


Minnesota Engineering Blog

I am a big fan of companies that show off their culture be it on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn or a company blog. Just as when we recruit we are hoping to find more about candidates… candidates are doing the same with us. They want to check out the CTO’s Tweets, Instagram photos showing events and culture and a blog where one can understand the “voice” of a company.

Minnesota Morning | phData, Sportradar And US IT Employment


Lake Minnetonka, #LakeLife


Yesterday I was in the Lake Minnetonka area, Minneapolis west suburbs, and found myself day dreaming about #LakeLife summer days. I took this photo imagining it to be 80F and in June. Good news… days are noticeably getting longer now and winter is more than half over.


phData

Tech.mn has an article Minnesota’s Big Data Bros Are Crushing It on Brock Noland and Mac Noland (@mcdonaldnoland) co founders (and brothers) of phData. I have seen, but not yet met, them at CoCo.

STOP… What If LinkedIn Dies?


RIP Linked In


At my MTNRN presentation, click Recap: 2017 Ready, Set, GO!!! Recruiter Checklist, I had this simple slide:
 

What if LinkedIn died


My challenge was… go one day a week without using LinkedIn.

And there were some butts squirming in the chairs. A couple of recruiters said they might not be able to go an hour without using LinkedIn.

That surprised me a bit.
