I’m an iOS developer and am thinking of moving to Denver.

Is there a big tech scene there?

If I leetcode like crazy can I keep a job?

    Tech salaries are decent here. Nothing to go crazy over like the west coast.

    Cost of living is pretty high, comparable to Seattle maybe a couple years back, but without pay rate keeping pace.

    Can be lucrative if you are willing to commute. The price of a house a half hour ot 45 minutes out is night and day compared to in denver and boulder directly.

      All states have some level of radiation (e.g., Washington is also high). The most notable difference is that most homes here have basements so it’s encouraged to have a radon mitigation system in your house (basically a fan that pushes air out from the basement).

      From under the basement, not from the basement. The idea is there is a small pocket of air under your house and then the radon ends up there and gets pumped out instead of radiating into the home.

      Completely safe really

      Just to clarify we have iOS, Android, among many other things that need to be built and maintained.

      I’m really just interested in iOS since that’s my passion.

    Last I heard Oracle was there? It’s not exactly FANG but you could do worse.
    Yeah leetcode and all the best!

    PS: if you are just an iOS developer I would say learn a new language, I have doubts about iOS future considering the advances apple has made
    With T chips and the moment they can have acceptable perf for macOS and first party apps on ARM, iOS market share will diminish significantly.
