Newest addition to Island, Caitlin.

no_crying

Hey, I’m Caitlin, I am the newest addition to team Island! I don’t really have a title, because we sort of do a bit of everything, but I guess you could say, developer, designer, photographer?! Or you know, “Floater”.

I grew up playing Steel Tip Darts, but after years of practice and tournaments, I got 3rd in provincials. It wasn’t a high enough placement to go to Nationals, so I decided I better choose a new career path. I started getting an interest for design and photography in 2008 and was hooked! I went to SBC but decided I needed to learn more. I then moved to San Francisco, California with my Aunt and that’s where my interest in development started! There I spent 4 years studying and working as a designer and developer.

I recently moved back to Saskatoon, just in time for this awful winter! To force myself to socialize and step away from my computer, I spend my spare time playing dodgeball and slo-pitch. I am a huge sports fan which includes Hockey, Baseball, and Football but I haven’t cracked the roster on any of those sports yet.

I am excited to be on the Island team and can’t wait to put my skills to use! Hope to create for you soon!

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.
