In our seven years #DevTO has worked diligently to organize timely, compelling, and engaging events for our tech-minded and developer community. In 2015, we set out to create one of our biggest and most poignant events yet: International Women’s Day Talks (#IWDTO). A day we celebrate and set a stage for women in tech to gather, speak and cheer with their allies.

In our six years as a successful monthly meetup in Toronto, #DevTO has worked diligently to organize timely, compelling, and engaging events for our tech-minded and developer community.
In 2015, we set out to create one of our biggest and most poignant events yet: International Women’s Day Talks (#IWDTO). A day we celebrate and set a stage for women in tech to gather, speak and cheer with their allies.
In March 2017, we renew our vows to support the movement, and hope you might join us too. We’d like to hear from you: we’re opening up a Call For Proposals to women in tech for our #IWDTO event. Are you in North America? Are you available March 6th, 2017? The primary theme is inspiration, with pinches of experience. Given the stage, what would you share with your community? That will be your job.
Our job? We will take care of all arrangements from transportation to accommodation. We will also provide a safe, inviting and inclusive space for you to speak and present. Lastly, Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world. As the fourth largest metropolitan area in North America, we have citizens from all corners of the globe. It’s important that our speakers reflect the fact.
You can submit a proposal here:
We look forward to hearing from you.

#DevTO started five years ago. As part of celebrating five years, we decided to host a 5K run / walk.
As a technical, creative, computer-loving person, you likely spend a lot of time sitting. The #DevTO5K objective: get people up, active, and away from their devices for a bit, while helping a great cause.
The #DevTO5K gave us the opportunity to support and highlight Techsdale, an awesome organization that you should check out. Techsale teaches young people to make games, apps, and websites. The program operates in Rexdale and surrounding areas, providing technical education and equipment. With the #DevTO5K, together we raised $500 for Techsdale.
Thanks to BrightLane, we began and finished the run at their (very cool) space.
Cross-Platform Mobile with Xamarin and Microsoft
Xamarin and Microsoft are out to empower .NET developers to become native iOS, Android, and Windows mobile app developers overnight. Apps built with Xamarin deliver truly native user experiences, 100% native API access, and native performance. See how to leverage existing C# skills and .NET libraries to share code across all platforms and create a shared mobile app backend. In this video from Build, Miguel de Icaza covers the full development lifecycle end-to-end of these native apps.

Sketch and Framer have become synonymous with designing and prototyping user interfaces and interactions. Unfortunately, these tools and their formats continue a legacy of unidirectional workflow that disconnects design from development. In this talk I’ll touch on build tools and libraries that allow for bidirectional creation of web experiences while seamlessly documenting our work along the way.
I’m a Full-stack Developer, Designer, Speaker, Entrepreneur, Mentor & Advocate who has been focused on creating amazing User Experiences, promoting web standards/best practices and developing useful tools for the design and development communities across the Mobile, Tablet and Desktop landscapes.
