Launch Party Vancouver 8

Last week, I attended Launch Party Vancouver 8 (LPV8) hosted by Bootup Labs Entrepreneurial Society and Strutta. This was my first visit to Vancouver and meeting some of the players in the western Canada tech and startup community. They did not disappoint.
Wondering what Launch Party Vancouver is? LPV is an evening of cocktails, chatter and connections. The goal is to help local entrepreneurs connect with investors or individuals who can help them take their startup another step farther. In attendance were some of Vancouver’s leading startups, techies and bloggers.
Eight different companies were strutting their stuff: Lilipip, Hootsuite, Yowza!!, Gist, MyWeddingMatch.com, DEQQ, Groove Systems and Wireless Image. All of these companies were boasting wonderfully innovative ideas and solutions. A mention to MyWeddingMatch.com being voted People’s Choice best startup and Hootsuite being voted most likely to succeed by the judges.

Free London Party: OpenSolaris User Group

Don't you just love December!?  It's the festive period and we love to party :-)

On Wednesday 17th we are providing another free evening of festive fare food & drink, some great company, oh and an opportunity to hear about some great new releases and innovations.


In the afternoon, we'll be running a drop-in session from about 3pm onwards where people can come along and talk to engineers and experts they wouldn't usually have access to plus we'll also have some really cool demos including, 'Dark Knight' Cluster demo, a 3D Java demo, SunSPOTs demo among others, & an InstallFest area which will cover VirtualBox, OpenSolaris 2008.11, NetBeans etc. Plus, if we get enough volunteers from the community, lightning talks going (where for 5-10 minutes, people share the cool stuff they're been working on or their experiences with OpenSolaris).

The evening session (6pm-9pm) will be 4 x 15 minute presentations run back-to-back, with 30 minutes for Q&A to the presenters immediately afterwards in the main presentation room:

   \* xVM

Experts from the above technologies and others (networking, cluster, security, storage etc.) will be on hand throughout.
