Hey Devs: Visit Boulder for free

CORRECTION: Deadline is Tuesday, October 7!

If you’re a software developer living somewhere outside of Colorado and have been hearing all these great things about the startup scene here, it’s time to come check it out. For free.

Twenty of Boulder’s most interesting early stage companies have teamed up to fly 100 developers in, put them up in a nice Boulder hotel, and show them around town for two days. This is 100% paid for by the 20 sponsoring companies, including Aegis, EventVue, Filtrbox, Fuser, Gnip, HiveLive, Me.dium, Printfection, Rally, Return Path, Socialthing, and more. You’ll get your chance to infromally interview with every one of them you’d like to during one of your two days here in town. The other day is for checking out the city, and for hanging out with some of the people from your favorite startups.

There will be dinners, fun events, and basically one big party that week. It’s taking place October 26-31 (you’ll come for two nights sometime during that week). The application deadline is October 137th, so get your application in soon for a chance to win your trip.

Remember to tell your friends (who are also developers that might consider a move to Boulder) about this. Boulder is even more fun when you bring a friend or two!

Check out with Mike Arrington of TechCrunch had to say about this event.

I hope to see you in Boulder for this fun event! If you end up applying, be sure to reach out to me and I’ll be sure you get a chance to check out Techstars while you’re here.
