With the July heat wave behind us, surely another one awaits Montreal in August. What better way to beat the heat and stay in a cool than in an air conditioned tech conference?
It's vacation season around Adeo's office, so things are a bit quieter than usual. The same thing can be said about the Montreal tech scene this month. Still, we came through for you and managed to find a few good events this month.
Web strategy workshops
Monday August 8th, McKibbin's Irish Pub Downtown
The website says “nothing to see here”, the Twitter page is sketchy and virus infected, and finally the Facebook hasn't been updated in ages. But still, this appears to be a real event that will actually take place. Don't make a long trip, but if you're nearby, it might be worth learning basic online marketing strategies.
Confoo BBQ 2011
Saturday August 6th, Mount Royal park
Once again, the Confoo BBQ will take place at 1h00, Saturday August 6, at Beaver Lake near the Smith Mansion on the Mount Royal. This high tech BBQ is all about celebrating Montreal and it growing tech community and all biggest names in the industry will be attending: PHP, Python, Ruby, Java and DotNet.
Montreal Adobe User Group - AUG 5 à 7
Wednesday, August 3rd, Istory II Bar Billard
As the name of this activity implies, this will be a laid back evening with pool tables, drinks and snacks all while discussing Adobe products such as Illustrator/Photoshop, Adobe Flash Catalyst and Flash Builder. The admission is 20,00$ per person with one consumption and free access to 6 pool tables for 3 hours. Aditionnal drinks will be 2 for 1 until 7 pm.
Quebec Progress Users' Group August Mini-Conference
Tuesday August 30th, Hotel Royal Versailles
I've got to be completely honest here: I've never heard of “progress software” before. But still, the presenter lineup and topic list looks solid. Eclipse, iPhone, .Net and other subject that will interest modern developers will be discussed.
Normally this is the part where I tell you to check back in 2 weeks. But at this rate there is no chance of enough events popping up to merit a second August edition. So, see you in September!
