DemoCamp Calgary 22 – Video

DemoCampYYC22 was held at Calgary’s Chamber of Commerce. Here’s a video summary for those that may have missed it:

00:26 Tom Short started us off with a kudos. Kudos is an in-house solution to increase employee engagement. No algae was shown.
14:35 Lloyed Lobo & Alex Popa showed Startup Gauge which placed them 2nd in Calgary Startup Weekend. Startup Gauge dismisses or validates by having users vote “Cash” or “Crash”. No algae was shown.
23:29 Christian Pekeler introduced Daily Child Care Report as a means for child care professionals to help track and communicate to parents how kids experienced their day. No algae was shown.
31:59 David Gluzman of BlackSquare with “The one hour experiment” recapped his experience using Drupal to create an internal web application in one hour Ignite presentation. No algae was shown.
34:36 Adrian Audet spoke about SFN BioSystems research in photo-bio-reactors for use in natural gas compression stations to reduce CO2 emissions.
46:54 Kevin Timms & Steve Bentley demoed QRZap. Using QRZap mobile web technology, QR Spaces facilitate the delivery of a number of different mobile interactions and rich experiences. No algae was shown.
55:21 Paul Thorsteinson demoed Anthm. Anthm is currently available for iOS devices, and allows those running the app to democratically control the playlist at a party. (Paul explained the social dynamics of having such a voting system available at an event are quite surprising.) No algae was shown.

DemoCampCalgary – Wednesday, February 22, 2012

DemoCampCalgary 22 is less than a week away – and we’ve got a some great demos lined up for you! Each demo will be 5 minutes, and we’ll give them the hook if they don’t give us a true demo. Which reminds us . . . this is a good time to talk about DemoCamp rules:

  • You must talk about DemoCamp. Bring a friend to DemoCamp Calgary and help support the startup community.
  • For presenters: No PowerPoint – you must demo a working product; hard clock – your presentation ends when time is up.
  • For the audience: Support the entrepreneurs – try out their products, make an intro or tell someone who might be interested in the product.

Here’s a few more reasons to attend:

  • You need to get the word out about something. We’ll give you the mic for a few moments. (Your company is hiring, you’re looking for a job, you have an event you’d like to invite people to)
  • Meet entrepreneurs, tech geeks, designers, and other great people!

See you at the Calgary Chamber of Commerce @ 6:30 – 2/22/2012.
