For the third consecutive year, three Colorado cities have been honored as Top Tech Towns.
According to a new study released by CompTIA, the trade association for the IT industry, Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs were named among the top 20 tech towns in the U.S.
Denver topped the list for Colorado cities, checking in at No. 10, with Boulder at No. 12, and Colorado Springs close behind at No. 15.
Based on job posting data over a 12-month period, August 2019 to July 2020, CompTIA looked at 20 metropolitan areas with populations over 250,000, where demand for tech workers is greatest.
The cities were then ranked based on cost of living, number of postings for open IT positions and projected job growth over the next year as well as the next five years.
