Vancouver Startup Week begins this Friday with a hackathon taking place at Telus Garden. They expect there will be 200 participants hacking away for prizes and glory. Speaking of prizes… we are a gold sponsor of the event, having offered a top prize of $10,000.00 in kind development services.
In other words, if your team wins, TTT Studios will give you a pro-rated 100 hours of development and design work to bring the MVP to a more polished level. This is the second year that we have offered this prize and are really excited to take part. I will also be a judge so start buttering me up now ;).
As a company, TTT Studios loves the idea of Startup Week and are excited to take part in many events outside of the hackathon. In fact, we are opening up our office twice to the public on Thursday for beer and BBQ.
On Monday, September 26th, I will speak on a panel with some very distinguished gentlemen. The topic is doing business in Silicon Valley and I share the stage with Brandon Lee (Consul General of Canada in California and Hawaii…. tough job Brandon) and Jeremy Hilton (Senior VP Systems, D-Wave). Bill Tam will moderate. Should be fun! (picture above is the three of us).
On Tuesday September 27th, – Three workshops will be held by our team.
Meet our designers and developers, network, and chat about bleeding edge tech. We have three workshops happening throughout the afternoon.
1. Three cups of chai: Extending your professional network (30 mins)
Our President Chris Hobbs (that’s me), shares his tricks for growing your network in a fun, easy, time-efficient way. Best for those starting out in the industry, or want to meet new people with a lasting impression.
2. Software Development: From Concept To Release (30 mins)
VP of Operations, David Hobbs and CEO José Hernández will explain the journey of software development, from scribbles to code to the final launch. Great for the curious, and the entrepreneur with The Big Idea.
3. Do’s & don’ts of software development design (30 mins)
Our VP of Design, Josephine Wong, will lead a conversation on what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to designing aspects of mobile applications. See examples of apps that have the IT factor… and apps that don’t. Perfect for designers and those of us who want beautiful (but functional) apps!
TTT Studios’ open house
Here’s your chance to start a conversation with experts in mobile development. Find out why TTT Studios is so keen on supporting the startup community.
On Thursday, September 29th, come down to the Open House / Community Crawl! Our doors are open. Come hang out with the TTT Studios family. We will share some of our latest works and toys that push the boundaries in AI, VR, and other two letter technologies. Heck… come and have a beer on our patio and shoot nerf darts at the A Thinking Ape Staff below.
We look forward to seeing you!
