TSOT’s New Office – True to Toronto’s Tech Scene

15 01 2008

Yeah, that’s right; This IS a gratuitous post about TSOT’s gorgeous new office! Our company has just opened an awesome ‘playground/workspace’ for our developers, and I have to say it really embodies the ‘tech business’ culture of our city. Anyone who has spent time in the heart of Toronto knows that we tend to be a little ‘outside the box’ when it comes to business etiquette – casual everydays and flex-schedules aside, we like to embrace the fun side of our tech community. 60” plasma televisions help, as does having Wii and Xbox 360 systems in the office… musical instruments and a karaoke mic also help induce a bit of extroversion in the workplace 😉


(Before and After)


Our team is really happy with the new space, and we’ve already begun to invite the community in to take a peek. Our next event for the tech community will take place Tuesday February 12th at 5:30pm – please call me at (416) 640-6144 x229 for details, or visit to sign up for our newsletter.


Joey deVilla, Accordion Guy and Tucows Technical Evangelist, Joins TSOT, Inc. and FraternityLive Development Team

30 11 2007

I had the opportune pleasure of sitting down with technical evangelist Joey deVilla recently at our TSOT, Inc. office in Toronto. With such a winning personally and zest for the accordion, it is easy to understand how Joey rose to the rank of public speaker at Tucows (and also why we have added him to our team of top developers). He’s a shinning example of how the most abstract ideas and interests can come together in an individual, and with that said let me introduce Joey deVilla – Accordion Guy and Technical Evangelist extraordinaire!

Toronto, ON November 29, 2007 — TSOT, Inc., Toronto-based developer of private social networking platforms like FraternityLive and SororityLive, has just welcomed Joey deVilla of Tucows fame to a growing team of top object oriented PHP developers. With the growth of the FraternityLive and SororityLive network and the addition of deVilla’s expertise, TSOT, Inc. is bringing the power of social networking to groups and business organizations across North America.

As a graduate of the Queen’s University Computer Science program, Joey deVilla has held leading roles in several groundbreaking technology companies. At Opencola, deVilla worked alongside Cory Doctorow (of Boing Boing fame) in creating relevance-based peer-to-peer software. Most recently, deVilla held the Technical Evangelist position at Tucows, demonstrating his extensive knowledge and winning personality as an ambassador for both technical and non-technical clients. Joey deVilla is also a well-known figure online, maintaining several popular blogs including ‘The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century’ and ‘Global Nerdy’. His motivation in joining TSOT, Inc., deVilla explained, “I want to make really cool software and help tell the company’s story.”

In leaving Tucows to join TSOT, Joey brings over 10 years of programming and development experience to the development team. TSOT, Inc. is gaining a strong reputation as a Ruby on Rails platform developer, which for deVilla was an added bonus. “Rails is new, makes programming fun and most importantly it lets you focus on functionality for the customers,” he explained, which is also one of the driving factors behind the TSOT, Inc. philosophy. As the FraternityLive and SororityLive network continues to grow, TSOT, Inc. welcomes Joey deVilla’s expertise in designing innovative networking solutions for organizations across North America.
