Business Briefs

Don't usually dig down deep into the business section but here's two business briefs from the Advertiser that might be of interest to readers:
Colorado company moving to Lafayette  
Tapes Again, a company started in Boulder, Colo., more than 20 years ago is moving to Lafayette next month. The decision to move is attributed to the bandwidth capacity available in Lafayette through LUS Fiber, according to a news release. 
The company's clients include musicians and others that have a need for media reproduction and packaging. Much of the company's interactions are through the internet, so the time that it takes to upload and download large files has a direct impact on daily production schedules.
That's a pretty natural fit: music and bandwidth.

The second short announces CajunCodeFest 2, with an emphasis on healthcare. The best bits:
The Center for Business & Information Technologies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette is seeking innovative thinkers and programmers of all types that want to change the world and improve health care outcomes....Participants will organize themselves into teams, and for 27 hours will build prototypes and tools for improved health care....
The first-place team will receive $25,000. Additional prizes will be announced in coming weeks as sponsors are confirmed. All participants must register. Registration is free, but space is limited. For more details, visit cajuncodefest.org, email info@cajuncodefest.org or call 337-482-0627.
