TSOT’s Ruby on Rails Project Night brings together the brightest minds in Toronto’s programming community for a night of dynamic presentations on the latest Ruby and Ruby on Rails projects.

This month we are proud to feature:

Mike Bowler (GargoyleSoftware) returns armed with a fist full of meta-programming as he looks at “Diving into meta-programming with Date.once”.

Kristan ‘Krispy’ Uccello will examine the architecture and design of the Domainer.com platform as he investigates, “Web Development Demons: Why it can be hard to do something simple”.

Leila Boujnane, co-founder and CEO of Idée Inc., will join us to discuss and demonstrate her company’s highly successful image search APIs.

We are also pleased to have Morph Labs and the Morph eXchange join us as our official drink sponsor for April’s event – therefore BYOB is only necessary in extreme cases! This event is free but space is limited; please reserve your spot by emailing corina.newby@tsotinc.com. If you would like to submit a presentation idea or learn about sponsorship opportunities at future TSOT events, please contact Corina at (416) 908-6082.

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 😉

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 http://www.tsotinc.com to sign up for our newsletter.
