What is the saying: “April showers bring May flowers”? What are we in for in May if April comes complete with not only rain, but snow? Get out the Farmer’s Almanac cause we may need to get prepared!
Last week, we attended the SEO Camp Montréal, “Les bonnes pratiques au profit du référencement Web”; an interesting conference on the best SEO practices that reaffirmed our thinking and our way doing things here at Adeo.
April seems to be a less than busy month as far as Web Design Events taking place in Montreal, but we managed to come up with some interesting ones for the second half of the month:
IGDA Montréal - Social Tsunami: Team, Tech and Design Implications of Games-as-a-Service
Tuesday, April 26, 2011, SAT, 1201, Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montréal, Québec
The International Game Developers Association plays host to Kim Daniel Arthur, a founding member of Playfish. With more than 300 million users worldwide thanks to its online game successes such as Pet Society, Restaurant City, FIFA Superstars and Madden Superstars, Playfish is now a respected member of the video game industry. The evening will be spent sharing his experiences and the development model of video gaming in the social media era. Development, marketing and design realities that are specific to gaming for social media will be covered.
April Montréal Girl Geek Event - Building Websites, No Code Required
Thursday, April 28, 2011, Twist Image, 407 McGill street, 2nd floor, Montréal, QC
Building a Web site with no design or programming knowledge is possible thanks to both free and payable hosted sitebuilders. Through a look at the strengths and weaknesses of each, you will be able to find the best platform for your company, personal or project Web sites. Bring your laptop if you want to play along!
Sadly, we missed these Montreal Web Events that took place earlier, but they are still worth mentioning:
Intracom Montréal 2011
Tuesday and Wednesday, April 12 and 13, 2011, Hyatt Regency, Montréal, QC
The 10th edition of this conference will offer information on topics such as the best Web practices, building an efficient communication strategy through social media and developing ways to grow your brand and your name. This two day event will feature many speakers from varied backgrounds and companies.
Thursday, April, 14, 2011, Centre Mont-Royal, Montréal, QC
This event is the annual meeting for professionals in the field of interactive communications. This second edition will feature international speakers, workshops, media groups, bloggers and more. Everything Web from the stakes, strategies and tendencies that influence and drive it will be covered
Les médias sociaux sont incontournables : quelle est votre stratégie d'intégration?
Monday, April 18, 2011, Hôtel Europa Best Western, Montréal, QC
How do you successfully include popular and growing social media platforms such as Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Facebook into your business objectives? What group in your organization should take charge of social media, the IT, Communications or Marketing department? These and more questions will be discussed and, hopefully, answered at this lunchtime event.
Join Adeo next month for, hopefully, some sunshine, warm weather, flowers and buds on the trees…oh ya, and some Web design events! So far, the May schedule appears to be filling up nicely!
