iWeb at the Montreal DemoCamp 2nd December 2009

Published on November 30, 2009 at 2:43 pm by iWeb Technologies in: Web Development Articles, iWeb Articles

The iWeb will have a strong presence at the next DemoCamp in Montreal. 2 of our employees will present and Jean-Luc SansCartier (@jeanlucs) will be an event host.

What is a DemoCamp? It’s an opportunity for Web developers and startups to meet and learn more about the job market, local brilliant projects, and network at the same time! It’s a series of 6-8 presentations which showcase the developer community. The demo can be a software, a web application or a current project. No powerpoints, just demos! The idea is to show technology in action and inspire attendees.

The Demo will be at the Mont-Royal center 2nd December 2009 at 6.30pm. The evening will start after the career workshop at 6.30, up to 8pm, when the demos will start. The event is free and open to all!

The presentations by iWeb employees will be Patrick Lafontaine and Benjamin Vanheuverzwijn. The subjects will be:

- Getting efficient MySQL backups, for free. Patick Lafontaine, certified MySQL DBA (CMDBA) and MySQL Developer (CMDEV)

- Presentation of free software for developing on a microcontroller PIC 16 bit. Benjamin Vanheuverzwijn, electrical engineer student

We hope to see you  at the DemoCamp next wednesday.

Win $500 with iWeb, thanks for your creativity

Published on November 11, 2009 at 1:46 pm by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

iweb-teamSince we now have a T-Shirt printing facility in our iWeb-CO offices, we thought about using the iWeb community and CrowdSpring for the creation of a unique design for iWeb.

We have therefore submitted a design competition for the website CrowdSpring.com which will allow you to send over your best ideas for a iWeb T-Shirt. The winner will get $500, a T-Shirt copy, and the pride to have his/her design to be worn by hundreds of people.

For those who’d want to submit their feedback on the designs, it’s very simple. You can write your comments on the website CrowdSpring.com for each of the T-Shirts. You can also use our blog to share your opinion. How? We will publish between 16th and 23rd of November all creations directly, in a blog post here, and you can then write a comment with your notes.

The competition will finish midnight, 23rd November 2009. For more information, please visit our page on CrowdSpring. You can view there all the details on what kind of design we’d like, as well as restrictions.

We hope to see many of you participating, either sending designs, or commenting on other’s.

Who knows… maybe you’ll receive a iWeb T-Shirt by post!
