There are a ton of developer and technologist events coming up in Toronto.
This free event will be hosted by the Toronto SharePoint User Group with a supporting cast of many fantastic volunteers and guest speakers.
There will be three tracks: Developer, Administrator, and Champion/Architect. There will be 15-18 presentations total in 3 to 5 theatres. The space should comfortably accommodate 200 to 300 attendees. TSP Camp will follow the CodeCamp manifesto: free, volunteer-run, brand-agnostic, less talk, more rock. Speaker slots will be first-come, first-served though there will be a bias for practical non-commercial presentations.
CASCON 2007 is the 17th Annual International Conference hosted by the IBM Centers for Advanced Studies. This “Meeting of Minds” provides an exciting forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the ever-expanding and critical fields of software development and computing.
The FSOSS Symposium is a two-day event aimed at bringing together educators, developers and other interested parties to discuss common free software and open source issues, learn new technologies and to promote the use of free and open source software. At Seneca College, we think free and open source software are real alternatives.
The success of online communities like Facebook and YouTube is phenomenal: they help organizations reach more people, engage them in new ways, raise more money, and improve the way organizations work. However the tools themselves don’t make this happen; the ‘web thinking’ behind these phenomena makes them truly transformative.
Web 2.0 tools are developed with participation at their core, on open systems and in a highly collaborative way. Ultimately they give individuals more freedom and control over their interactions.
Jason Mogus will provide an overview of the most common Web 2.0 tools, explore the larger cultural trends driving this technical change and discuss how the social / community sector can use them to further its mission. He will also challenge us to examine how our older thinking and decision models are holding back success in this new interactive world where the audience is truly in charge.
This event is free but you must register online
Format would be similar to FacebookCamp where we’d have a few tech/how-to conversations followed up with demos of what the local community has been doing with the various AWS services. More than anything it would be a great venue for those of us developing on this infrastructure to find & get to know each other.
LiveCampToronto is the first unconference for everyone with an interest in building on the Windows Live Platform. LiveCampToronto brings together developers, marketers, strategists, technologists, and students, in an open and collaborative environment of sharing and learning.
