Hamilton community technology and startup blogs

I read a great post by Adrian Duyzer (@adriandz) on the Factor[e] (@factor_e) blog earlier this month about the importance of technical co-founder to a startup company (something many Hamilton startups are missing). I enjoyed it because it concisely identified an issue that I’ve personally seen a lot of Hamilton startups struggle with.

It also got me thinking about what other technology and startup blogs are out there in the Hamilton community. Everybody benefits when people publicly share information, opinions, and experience. Thankfully a lot of people in the Hamilton community are doing just that! Whether it’s REfficient (@REfficient) CEO Stephanie McLarty blogging about the creation of a cleantech business, or Rich Halliday at Green Pixel (@GreenPixelDev) getting under the hood with mobile game code, there are Hamilton bloggers out there writing great technology and startup articles. But I’m not sure how many people are aware of each other and what’s out there, so I thought I would compile them all in this blog post. Check out the the list of bloggers below!
