We love travelling this great country of ours, especially when we get to connect with the IT Professional Community and to deliver in person events. 

 

If IT Camps have taught us anything, it's that there’s an huge appetite out there for deeply technical, hands on training.  And rest assured, before you start asking about it in the comments section of this post, we’re planning more IT Camps as we speak.  In fact we just updated some of those events, you can read more here.

As you know, Canada is a huge country, and as a small team, we can only visit so many places at a time.  If we had our way, we’d hit every city with an IT Pro from Victoria to St. John’s and everywhere in between.

Since we can’t be there in person, the next best thing is online.  And we’re happy to say we have a bunch of new online events called “Jump Starts” coming up soon that you can take advantage of.  These events have all the great technical knowledge and amazing presenters that you’re used to, but you can watch it all from the comfort of your own desk, office or home. 

Here’s a listing of the upcoming Jump Starts you can attend:
