6 years. That is how long the Okanagan Developer's Group has been going. Think of how the technology community in the Okanagan has changed since then? We have many newcomers to the valley, a ton of new companies, some successful exits, and a ton of new events servicing all aspects of technology that you can see at Digital Okanagan's Okanagan Tech & Creative Community Events Meetup group. Last year was amazing for OKDG consistency. We had events every month, from September to May. We also did well at starting events on time and keeping speakers to an 18 minute time limit. What will we do for this year?
OKDG's 5th season has come to an end. We expect to have a gathering sometime this summer to discuss how Season 6 will progress, and maybe have a hackathon for the new website. If you are interested in that conversation, please reach out! Otherwise, have a great summer!
Nerdy friends and colleagues from around the Okanagan crowded The Bike Shop Cafe on the night of April 24th to watch the OKDG's presenters, graphic design maven John van der Woude and prolific photographer Shawn Talbot talk about their passions. We'd be putting it lightly calling it an absolutely stellar evening.
