E-commerce webinar July 17th

Are you looking to start an online business or create a new revenue stream for an existing business?

Are you wondering which solution you should use, whether or not you should build an app, whether you should go the DIY route or hire a developer?

Then you should definitely join the WESK webinar on e-commerce tomorrow July 17th, from 12pm to 1pm.

During this hour I’ll be covering all of the most common questions first time e-commerce store owners have. We’ll look at which tools you should use based on where you’re at in your business, as well as your business type and much more.

And there will be a Q&A session at the end so we can delve deeper into your particular issues.

See you then!

LARACON CONFERENCE – FEB 7 + REPLAY

Ok, so we missed it. Fortunately, the Laracon replays will be available soon, and you can browse the videos from the 2017 conference in the meantime.

Laracon is a conference around Laravel, the open-source PHP framework that we use at Island to build our web apps. Talks this year touch on the topics of scalability, UI, querying and the future of javascript.

If you’re excited and can’t wait, here’s a link to last year’s videos while you wait – including a talk by Laravel creator Taylor Otwell.

Island Treasures – February 2nd

<p> Generic remark about how it’s February already.</p>

Great, now that we’ve got that out of the way we can dive back into our favourite part of the week…Island Treasures! Before we jump in though I’d like to just make it clear that any business or resource we feature here has in no way asked us to or frankly even known we would be including them. Everything we choose to include is 100% because we believe strongly in them/it and think that there is a benefit to providing them to you as readers! No bullshit, just treasures we love…

Trails of 1885 Website – Island Project Spotlight

It’s Thursday, so that means time for a throwback…all the way to 1885. Last year we were fortunate enough to work with the folks at Tourism Saskatoon and the Trails fo 1885 to redesign their website. Here is how it used to look.

The website needed to highlight the different sites that you can visit that were part of the Trails of 1885 history. But as part of our discovery we realized just how much this story covered. The main feature of the website is the homepage (after you select your language). This serves as an interactive timeline that takes the user through the history of the North-West Resistance.

 

The website also has a page for each site, where you can learn more about its history, location, hours, upcoming events, and even view a photo gallery of that location.

Also featured is an interactive map, so users can see the proximity of locations to one another, and find convenient driving routes between each site.
