Actually, Minneapolis. There seems to be a strong, yet friendly tech community thriving there despite the cold. I think Minneapolis is closer to what Anchorage can achieve in short order. We're small and friendly (no matter what anyone says), and we're tenacious. At least some of us are.
I moved to Anchorage awhile back, fell in love with the city. I am currently a website manager - sigh, vague titles - but I am trying to learn to code in my spare time. I have a background in technical writing, event planning, and teaching.
