First a huge thank you to Mike Lee & Bonnie Schnurr and the team at Rogers Communications, Inc. DemoCamp Toronto # 21 is taking place at the Velma Rogers Theatre at 333 Bloor St E, Toronto, ON, and this venue would not have without their sponsorship and support.
DemoCamp Toronto # 21 is completely sold out. If you have a ticket and are not able to attend, please send me an email and I will free up the tickets and refund your money.
Jon Udell is joining us for DemoCamp. For those of you that don’t know Jon, he’s a big part of the reason I decided to join Microsoft. Jon wrote about his decision back in 2006 and going to work for Jeff Sandquist (co-incidently Jeff is a Canadian, we’re taking over the world). Big thanks to Greg Wilson for inviting Jon to participate in his Science 2.0 event, we’re really lucky to have Jon join us and present at DemoCamp. Jon will be opening the night, and sharing stuff that interests him and will change the world.
