Minnesota Tech Central

A quick intro… I get a lot of inquiries from tech professionals near and far looking for information on the Minnesota and St Paul tech scene. To be more specific:

  • local Junior Developers are wanting to know how to break into the local tech scene
  • A lot of Senior Developers have had their head down for a long time and unaware of Minnedemo, Twin Cities Startup Week or meetups
  • An increasing number of inquiries from Bay Area, Austin, Chicago and New York City tech pros seeking info on the area

This is my attempt at having a “getting started” or “orientation” to our tech scene.

I likely will be missing some topics that should be here. If you want to see something added… send me a note.
