We're in TechCrunch y'all! Oh, and the reason I haven't been around: I'm in Mountain View monday through friday... as a part of Y Combinator. I'll be back right after YC ends and we raise our seed round.
Vidpresso wants to change the way that TV producers insert media into their broadcasts, with a low-cost, software-based solution that could fundamentally..

Bad news guys... I'm going to be in CA Monday through Friday for the next 11 weeks... so that means I'm going to have to postpone the product first stuff for a while. I know there's a class that they're teaching at WSU Downtown that offers similar skills, while taking a different approach.

Sorry about that!

 Can you do me a fav and fill out this form if you've even thought about learning to code? It'll help inform what we're doing in our new code course.

Sublime text 3 is a prerelease which won't nag you. I recommend sublime over any other right now.

Ever wanted to learn to code? Well, merry christmas, this is your chance.

The totally optional application: (helps us tailor this to you!)
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/13TRFnQABwHw2j887TW5YvmKCu93Ggwr9QT0f062nJ8c/viewform

We're going to be inaugurating a weekly tradition of teaching and learning to code. But, instead of a lecture format, which requires a lot of commitment, we're all going to be following the lessons from Treehouse ( http://teamtreehouse.com ) and this time will serve as office hours when you're stuck.

We expect the format of the class will be pretty loose, but the initial ramp up of the class will be highly structured. We expect you can go from no knowledge, to basic knowledge of programming in approximately 90 days. We think a person who's truly committed could, in 6 months, become a hirable programmer.

Questions? Happy to answer them.

So I'm still going to be gone at least through the beginning of April. My desk can be open to anyone who wants to use it... Monitor and all. If anyone wants to nominate someone to get my key card... I'd donate it for the time being. I'm planning to keep paying just to support Startup Ogden.

Looks like you're over in the HQ section. I'll give it a try just for fun. I've been floating around a lot. Thanks

Heads up: I may or may not be there for Wednesday's class. I'm going to mountain view unexpectedly tomorrow.

(Good things! Will share more when I know more)

Anyone who wants to: We're doing a learn to code thingy on Wednesday at Startup Ogden!

We're going to "push off" into our big fat coding adventure! We're going to discuss tools we can use to code, and setting up our environment the simple way.

This place is seriously the jam. It's good enough that it actually got me to use Google+.

We lived here just for a short while (3 months, wife's job) and we've really liked it. Nice amenities, etc. Nothing bad to say.

I love this place. I've lived all over the US (in chinese food meccas like NYC and SF) and this is some of the best "ghetto" chinese anywhere. If you're looking for something more upscale, try Zhang's chinese, but this is the best if you're looking for mainstream general tso style chinese.
