A few brave bv02 souls will be donating some valuable face real estate to the Make a Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario this November.
We’ve been working for the past few months to build Ottawa’s (and Canada’s) first Open Device Lab. We’re ready to open the doors to the Lab and we want you to come celebrate with us!
On July 11th, from 3PM until 7PM, join us at the bv02 office (858 Bank Street, Suite 103) for the Ottawa [...]
Here at bv02, we’re strong supporters of open data and accessible APIs: to call this a “growing” movement would be an understatement. Open data and APIs will be critical in the future of web and mobile technology. If you haven’t heard of open data or APIs yet, now’s the time to catch up.
Since more people access websites on their phones every day, testing websites on different devices isn’t really an option anymore, it’s a necessity. However, this comes with a problem: there are a lot of devices. A lot. Not only is there a constantly growing number of devices people can use to access websites, fragmentation of platforms is making it even more challenging. Add that to older versions of operating systems and browsers, and you can see the challenge. The sheer number of devices needed for testing can make the price of maintaining your own testing lab prohibitive. That’s where bv02’s Open Device Lab comes in.
The bv02 team loves being involved in the community, whether it’s the local art community or the international technology community, so it’s no surprise we have a slew of upcoming community events. One of the events we’re most excited to be involved in? The Gusty Walk taking place on Sunday, June 9th.
You might know Mika Trottier as Account Manager extraordinaire, but she is also an extremely talented mobile photographer, who blends technology with traditional media to create unique art pieces. She’s so fantastic, in fact, that she is hosting a Vernissage this Saturday (March 23rd) at Black Tomato in the Byward Market at 10pm. A lot of bv02-ers will be in attendance supporting our talented teammate, and we’d love to see you there!
Love it or hate it, South By Southwest is certainly one thing: one of the largest gatherings of the technology world’s best and brightest. Everywhere you look, and everyone you talk to is doing something awesome, from creating amazing apps, to helping facilitate the relationships between farmers and technologists. Each time I strike up a [...]
Our brand isn’t defined by a single person – it’s in the hands of each bv02 employee, every day. So today, we’re taking it literally, and we’re handing over the keys to the bv02 Twitter account. The Twitter Takeovers will continue as a regular series on Fridays, to help you get to know the different [...]
Meet Justin MacNeil, one of bv02’s senior developers. He has an awesome nickname (Tang) and an extensive knowledge about pretty much everything. When we think “Who in the office would know the answer to this?” the answer, more often than not, involves Tang.
We thrive on new challenges at bv02, and the Arctic Watch Beluga Cam live stream was one of those new challenges. So new, in fact, that we had to create a technical solution to address some very specific issues we, and the industry, have had little chance to grapple with: an extremely remote Northern location, cameras that would be placed on a tower in the middle of an inlet and the need for a self-contained power source.
