Thanksgiving in Fort Collins

| Comments


I had a pretty good time over Thanksgiving break with the fam in Colorado. I got in Denver on Wed night and into Fort Collins about 1 AM. Had a few nights of amazing sleep on an air matress believe-it-or-not. T-Day comes around, spent time with Zaide, the Lyons and the Brewers (pics) . Aunt tracy made a huge meal with all of the good stuff (including my fav… stuffing). The Turkey was huge, the sweet potatoes were perfect, the stuffing as well… and to top it all off, we had a nice cheesecake too.

The rest of the weekend was really a movie/shopping/beer fest. Over the 3 nights we watched one movie that I can’t remember the title, Cars, Monster Inc, and the Da Vinci Code. We visited 2 Malls and one small shopping center. We also visited the New Belgium (Fat Tire) Brewery (pics) and the Budweiser Brewery (pics). I was excited about Fat Tire because it it one of my fav’s and I was excited about Bud because it was a huge plant. Tasting fresh Budweiser is a whole different experience than what you get out of the bottle… it is actually good! After all the Lyons went to bed (usually before Midnight!) I spent 3-4 hours each night working on my project that was due Mon, this cool AI project about moving battleships and probability. Sunday night, when I got back to SF, I went to an Alice in Chains concert, but I will review that later.


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
