Our friends at the Ryerson Fashion Zone are hosting their second annual Hack’n’Talk May 1st to 3rd! The event is a three day conference and collaborative hacking session for fashion-inspired technology projects. This year’s focus will be on the style surrounding wearable technology. During the event, attendees will have the chance to attend workshops on Practical Aesthetics and Colour Theory, hear from industry experts, meet past winners, and play with cool tools to experiment, create, and innovate in fashion technology.

The event is open to developers, designers, and entrepreneurs and is a great opportunity to test startup ideas, build your network, and meet industry experts.

This weeks episode almost didn’t happen. If not for the last minute save by Jason Little it might have just been Chris talking to himself for an hour, probably not all that compelling :)

Hope you enjoy this episode!

On this week’s episode:

  • Chris is MIA
  • Nael look’s things up
  • Jen get’s rambly.

In all seriousness though, for this weeks episode I am incredibly proud to bring to you a show featuring one of our International Women’s Day speakers Jen Simmons. I have been fortunate that I get to edit the show before it makes it’s way here so I’ve already had a chance to listen to this great conversation, and I think you’ll enjoy it as well.

While I was away in Mexico soaking up the sun, Nael and Jen spent well over an hour going over topics ranging from how to get more women into STEM related fields, to how Jen got her start on the web to smacking Drupal upside the head to get it to run faster.

Announcing BrightLane & Mercatus Partnership

It is our pleasure to announce a new and exciting partnership with BrightLane and Mercatus Technologies. DevTO is joining the community of entrepreneurs at BrightLane (including Mercatus) working together in a cool and historic building at 545 King West. Four years ago we started DevTO with a mission to bring developers, designers, techies and entrepreneurs together through monthly events, workshops and other seasonal events. Today we continue that mission in a new home at BrightLane as the newest member of that community!

“DevTO is the GTA’s premiere community of developers and, together with Mercatus Technologies Inc., we’re proud to jointly become a Partner-level sponsor,”

says George Horhota, BrightLane’s President. “We’re also excited that, only two months after opening our premiere coworking centre on King Street West, DevTO has decided to make BrightLane their home and will hold at least three DevTO events this year at BrightLane.”

Through this partnership, DevTO will have access to the fabulous facilities at BrightLane which opened in November 2014. This includes a dedicated space for our co-founders to meet and work on DevTO projects.

So, keep an eye out for BrightLane in 2015, check out their spaces  and schedule a tour to see for yourself. Maybe we’ll even run into you there!

In the words of BrightLane’s and Mercatus Technologies co-founder, G. Raymond Chang:

“It’s people that make any successful enterprise”.

The 416: Episode 1 – You know what? Fuck it, delete.

On this week’s show; Chris confuses square with stripe, Nael delete’s all the podcasts in his podcast app, and did you know every good podcast has a train in the background?
