Speaker lineup

 Bridging the gap between Native and Web with offline mobile web apps
Bijan Vaez – EventMobi

The native vs web debate continues to rage onwards while new web technologies continue to close the gap. In this presentation we’ll take a quick look at one of the main points of debate – offline access, and how we can make it possible on the mobile web. We’ll discuss a brief overview of what is possible with the offline web and techniques and technologies like HTML5 Local Storage and AppCache to build fast and robust mobile web apps that can take a bite out of most native apps!

Bijan is the technical co-founder of EventMobi, the leading mobile platform for events and conferences worldwide. An engineer by day and a mad scientist by night, he thrives in being able to push technologies to their absolute edge. Having worked on the hardware side of things at AMD, and an RFID consultancy startup in Silicon Valley, he’s settled himself in the software battlefield playing around with the newest and greatest in the mobile web. He has a Computer Engineering degree from the University of Toronto and can be found on twitter at @bijanv.

 

WordPress: Not just a blogging platform
Matt Read – Partner & Technical Head of Nat&Marie

With over 71 Million websites running it, there’s no doubt that WordPress is an extremely powerful and easy to use platform for building a variety of different websites.  Typically thought of as a blogging platform, this talk will demonstrate how WordPress can be expanded beyond its traditional implementation to become a powerful CMS system able to mange a wide assortment of data outside of a typical ‘blog post’.  This talk will also demonstrate how to implement a fully managed API service that can used to send data to any number of different devices and platforms which are able to consume JSON data.

Matt renowned as one of the “Tallest Guys in Tech”, is also one of the most resourceful. From Fortune 500’s to enterprising startups, Matt has used his unique blend of talent, experience and perseverance to implement complex solutions across a wide range of platforms and technologies.

With an interest in web development covering both front end user interfaces and the back end content management systems to power them, Matt found the WordPress platform where he has spent the last few years building client web sites and experimenting with expanding WordPress functionality outside of the traditional uses of the platform.

Currently, Matt is working on several projects ranging from mobile applications to live streaming video platforms as well as continuing his role as the technical lead on Nat&Marie (natandmarie.com), one of the first live format web series to hit the net in Canada.

#devTO does Social Media Week Toronto

After 10 consecutive rounds( and a thanks for coming out to our first ever #devTO of 2012, which happened last Monday. Braving winter like that), we’ve decided to give our friends a bit of a background story. And with Social Media Week creeping around the corner, we’ve ALSO devised a session solely to deliver it.

#devTO 10. Or… Creating a community of Developers and Designers” for short. Atendy and Epilogger will also get a spotlight as they are a key part of #devTO’s story. Social Media Week’s focus is complimentary to the very meet-up that this post is referring to. Heck, this event WAS built through twitter btw.  We’re all excited about being a part of this worldwide event. Very much so that we’re doing the presentation with our two companies. Who better to know the story than the Full House-esque dads of #devto?  Talk about a real narrative!

“I went to the event posting and there’s no more spots! What’s up with THAT?!”

I know, I know: we’re sold out already and ALOT of folks can’t wait until March’s #devTO 11. Understandable. There MAY be openings, for sure, but the policies for SMWTO are pretty set in stone. There could be more spots opened in the next week! For those who had their Kung Fu-trigger finger coding hands: this will be at #Bnotions  on Monday, February 13th, 2012 at 6:30pm.

 

 

This month’s #DevTO is brought to you by:

#devTO and Design Edge Are Calling All Mobile Developers

  We here at #devTO encourage the Toronto Interactive scene in app making. Heck, we’ve backed Atendy and Epilogger to produce a high calibur solution to both run and cherish those special events. Supporting a contest that can produce this sort of quality is no exception. Especially with our friends from Design Edge Canada involved. So…

WE’RE CALLING YOU OUT!

Yes, you with the passion for production. The ambition for quality assurance tests on even your own devices. Yes – you, the one with the innovative, head-turning idea that will shine on any platform. Whether it’s the Green Bots or looking through glass panes.  #DevTO is giving you a chance at Regional Design Award in Mobile Design glory with two free early bird entries to be used before February 3rd! You’re thinking…

No way! There must be SOME sort of catch to this!

A bit of leg work, on your part, is our style! If you’re still really reading this: you’ve guessed it right: there is ALWAYS leg work. Nael, Jo, Chris, and I, will be the gatekeepers here. We will be evaluating the best idea to send off to duke it out with some of the best app makers(yeah – I said “best”. You know how Toronto gets down with apps). Anyway,  to submit your entry idea thesis, get this to #devTO at contests@devto.ca with the subject of “Regional Design Award Winning Mobile App”. Make sure you have your name in the body someplace. This should be in our hands by Friday, January 27th, 2012. Design Edge’s rules for the submissions are here, too.  So…

GET APP-ing!

#DevTO 9 coming up Jan 30th 2012: new location, FITC, Design Edge giveaways & more!

Happy New Year everybody! We hope everybody had a safe and happy break. The folks at #DevTO are super refreshed and ready to bring twelve kick-ass #DevTO events to you in 2012!

New Location!

First off, many thanks to the folks at Richmond Day for hosting us (and all of you) the past 8 months. We started off at Richmond Day with a dozen or so attendees in the first few months before blowing past 70 attendees in the past couple of months. The guys at #DevTO are working hard on relocating the event to a new home for this year.

 

While we finalize where we are going, we thank our friends at BNotions who have offered us their space for the events in January and February at:

46 Hayden Street (3rd floor)
Toronto, Ontario
M4Y 1V8 CANADA

 

 

FITC Giveaway!!

Remember Marc Levy won a ticket last month? Well we can’t send him alone. So FITC is giving us another ticket ($500 value) to giveaway on January 30th for FITC Toronto 2012 April 23- 25th.

FITC produces design and technology focused conferences and seminars worldwide which inspire, educate and challenge attendees. Since 2002, FITC has brought together like-minded professionals and students in Toronto, Amsterdam, Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago, Seoul, New York, Los Angeles and many other cities.

FITC produces a number of events internally and in collaboration with other event organizations throughout the year.

 

 

Design Edge Giveaway!!!

Design Edge Canada Regional Design Awards has a Mobile Design Category and would like to encourage more mobile app designers/developers to enter. They have offered us two free early-bird entries (value $85 each) to DevTO attendees. Early-bird deadline is Feb 3.

Steam Whistle Giveaway!!!!

Canadas Premium Pilsner Steam Whistle Brewing is offering #DevTO attendees 10 voucher tickets for their souvenir tour. You get to tour the brewery, sample their awesome Pilsner and even take home a souvenir glass or retro bottle opener!

So that is another reason to be at the next #DevTO! We will be giving these out during the event!

 

Like every month we have two great presentations waiting for you, say hi to Peter, Sue and Marc:

Make your data dance

Peter Newhook – Cineplex Entertainment
Peter is a Business Analyst at Cineplex Entertainment in Toronto where he focuses on Workflow and Business Intelligence on the Microsoft SharePoint platform. Prior to joining Cineplex, Peter was a student at the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University. In his spare time Peter likes hacking on various .Net technologies and isnt above venturing beyond the walls of the CLR and experimenting with Hadoop and data mining. When he isnt talking tech, Peter enjoys running marathons and inline speed skating.

The Silverlight PivotViewer is possibly the coolest tool available to developers to make large amounts of data meaningful and accessible to end users. In this presentation Peter will show how any developer, regardless of platform, can expose information in a way thats fun to use, and invites exploration.

How to Deliver Effective Client-facing Presentations: A Crash Course for Developers

Sue Varty & Marc Roginsky – HeadStart Soltuions

We have been seeing Sue and Marc since the early days of #DevTO, they have presented a couple of times in the early months and now continue to support #DevTO as one of our sponsors. Sue and Marc are presenting at #DevTO for the 3rd time now – we are looking forward to it!

Marc Roginsky is a Toronto-based recruitment strategy consultant with more than 10 years of experience.

A power LinkedIn user since 2004, he is a senior recruiter and resourcing specialist who has implemented recruitment strategies for start-up and Fortune 500 companies in the telecom, software development and mobile sectors.

Susan Varty has been providing communications, digital strategy, and technology advice to corporate clients and small businesses since 2006. With a strong background in enterprise software, she is a non-traditional recruiter, marketer, and established social media consultant/blogger.

You know your stuff. As a developer with extensive technical abilities and exceptional problem solving skills, you have a good career. However, not-so-strong communication and presentation skills can inhibit your full potential when it comes to your professional growth.  Under-practiced communication skills can hamper your career especially when there are client-facing situations at your workplace.  Would you like somebody else to present and communicate your brilliant technical ideas to the client and get the spotlight?

By following a very basic formula in making a presentation, borrowed from the internationally acclaimed Toastmasters Club, we will show you how to take your career to the next level and really show your clients that you are an expert in what you do, including:

  • How to make effective, simple presentations easily without breaking a sweat.
  • How to develop a positive, winning, and convincing attitude when working with your clients.
  • How to present technical concepts to non-technical audiences and get them to agree with you.

 

Hope to see you out there to kick off DevTO 2012!

DevTO: A Year Later

A Look Back

Some 8 months ago the very first DevTO was held at 20 Mowatt St, in the offices of Richmond Day.  I think about 30 people showed up to that first event (and many of those who showed up that day are still showing up).  The next event wasn’t nearly as successful, but the 3rd and 4th really showed us that we were on to something and that we needed to keep doing this.

Speaking personally, I NEVER imagined that DevTO would turn into something this amazing. Something that I looked forward to organizing and working on every month, something that involved me with 3 other smart and capable guys, guys that I could learn from, guys that I enjoyed working on a team with.  Sometimes, when things are quiet, and nobody is around, I think a little bit about how lucky I have been to have been involved in something so great, with such great people.  I would highly suggest that If you ever get the chance to do something like this, to grab hold of it and go for it.  There’s nothing quite like it in the world.

Our Friends

Sponsors

The continued success of DevTO could not have been possible this year without the help and support of our amazing sponsors:

Quick Fact: did you know that the first 4 DevTO events were entirely self funded?  Well they were and boy are we glad that our friends stepped up to help us out on that front.

  • Richmond Day – Who provided our amazing location for this past year.
  • Rypple – Kept everyone fed with pizza at each event
  • Thinkwrap – Kept us all well lubricated with hops based beverages (beer!)
  • Headstart solutions - See those snazz DevTO shirts?  It’s all Headstart solutions!
  • Gelaskins – We’ve been giving away gift cards the last couple of events, there from Gelaskins and they are awesome!

None of what we have done this past year would be possible without the graciousness and charity of our donors.  We love and thank you!!

Special shout out: To the Atendy guys, it’s been a blast working with you fella’s this past year, you’ve really pushed us to try some new things and we appreciate your advice and help this past year!  Thanks Chris and Ahmed!

Speakers

We have been incredibly fortunate over the last year to have been able to get some incredibly smart and knowledgeable people to come and talk at DevTO.  From the very beginning we knew that we wanted to have a bit of a split between really technical topics and easier to digest less technically focused talks and I think over the last year we’ve done a great job of getting some amazing people to talk about some great topics.

We’ve had topics that have covered everything from promoting your work on linked in, increasing reliability in your applications with RabbitMQ to using the canvas object in javascript. We love covering everything from the simple to the complex, and our speakers have done a fantastic job this past year delivering excellent and valuable talks on both of those fronts.

Quick Fact: @cbrooker presented from @jonezy ‘s desk at DevTO #2 (there were only 6 people at that event!)

So… Chris, Craig, Mark,, Khori, Alex, Shey, Sue, Mark, Wes, Farhan, Tyson and anyone else I’ve forgotten,  Thank you for being amazing!  We appreciate you taking the time to put together well thought out and fun presentations for us, we hope to see you back again next year!  If anyone wants to come back and do another presentation in the new year, email us at talks@devto.ca

The Real Reason – You!

The real reason that DevTO has been such a resounding success this year is you, the attendees. The people that come out week after week and show that not only is DevTO a great idea but that it works and provides value to those that attend.

There have been some great bit’s of connection that have happened at DevTO’s.

  • The DevTO / Atendy partnership was born because the guys from Atendy were coming to the events and wanted a place to test there new product (event registration and badges).  They approached us about partnering to test out there product and the rest as they say is history!
  • @jonezy met @cbrooker at DevTO 2 where @cbrooker presented epilogger.com. @jonezy was so impressed that he joined the team shortly thereafter.  Another DevTO success story!

There are a couple of things that we’ve noticed this past year when it comes to the people that are attending DevTO

  1. We usually split about 50/50 between new faces and returning attendee’s.
  2. 1/3 of attendee’s are women
  3. Attendance has increased steadily from month to month, with our most attended event being DevTO #7 (with approx 70 attendees)
So to all that have attended this past year, thank you!  Without you there would be no DevTO. We appreciate you coming out every month, dealing with our rare planning gaffe and making DevTO an amazing event for everyone involved!

The Future

As with all great things we plan on making DevTO better, we’ve had some thoughts that we’ve been sharing as a group about how best to make DevTO even better in the new year, we’ve talked about throwing full day hackathons, longer full day conferences, some expansion of the website and even getting into some more educational type programs as well.  Heck, we’re even talking about expanding DevTO to other cities!

From the founders, Chris, Kevin Nael and Jo we are going to be back 110% this year, we have had an amazing time working together on bringing you DevTO and can’t wait to do it for another year.

Of course as always we would love to hear what you guys think!  Do you have some suggestions to make DevTO a better event for everyone involved?  If you do please email us at info@devto.ca, we would love to hear your thoughts!

Keep In Touch

I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned a few times throughout this post that we would LOVE to hear from the people that have been attending and speaking at the events over this past year.

We want to know what you think has been good, has been bad and what can be improved.  So to that end here are the various ways to get in touch with the team

#DevTO 8 Lineup

We had our biggest event last month with 60 people showing up at Richmond Day for our 7th monthly meet up for great presentations by Farhan Thawar and Wes Bos. We also had a massive giveaway of about 20 #DevTO t-shirts (thanks to Headstart Solutions!) and 20 GelaSkins $20 gift cards (Thank you!)

 

Speakers

On Dec 12th we welcome all our attendees to the 8th #DevTO with some more great presenters for you:

Tyson Kingsbury – Creative Director, ThinkWrap Solutions
Tyson has been working as a visual designer since the mid 90’s. By the end of the decade, he had worked his way up the design ladder to become Art Director at Montage eIntegration. Tyson has produced magazine ads, POP displays, direct mail, corporate branding and numerous web and intranet designs, with clients including Honda, AT&T Canada, Chapters, The U.N. and Canada 3000 airlines. When Montage was bought out by Manitoba Telecom, Tyson formed his own graphic design company and continued to develop award-winning designs for clients like Allstream, SQL Power and various other corporate and new media clients. Finally in 2004, Tyson became the Creative Director for Pentura Solutions and has contributed on the following projects: The No Phone Zone initiative, Automotive XPrize, Allstream Inc., Barack Obama’s Inauguration, DNCC, Bridgepoint Health, Google, Novell, Martha Stewart, and numerous ‘in-house’ projects.

Tyson is our first design talk at #DevTO, he’s going to share with us some of his experience in the creative process involved in designing logos. Make sure you ask him how the #DevTO logo came about!

Epilogger – We’ll remember it for you
Epilogger wants to answer the question: “What the hell happened last night and where are my pants?” We found that after attending an event its a feat trying to track down all the great content shared by all those who tweeted, blogged, or checked-in. We went ahead and did the work for you and put all that content time capsule. We’ll even give you the stats!

The team is going to give us a demo of Epilogger and show you how you can tell your boss that your night of hedonism was really a clever ethnographic study in disguise!
