Do You Something 4 Great Good

Work on something you love. Just do good and be great!

This is a new weekly event presented by Software Niagara and hosted at Cowork Niagara. It's an opportunity for you to come out and work on something you love, learn new things, and chat about the latest & greatest in tech.

A general topic is provided for this event but there is no set discussion or activites. At its core, this event is an opportunity to get together with your peers. You choose what to make of it. Spend the evening talking, listening to interesting conversations, or working on the next big thing. You decide. Just do good and be great!

This event is suitable for students, those new to coding, and people working on side projects.

DemoCamp

Celebrate Made-in-Niagara apps & games at a show-and-tell with cocktails

Great things are being built right here in Niagara and we want to shine a spotlight on those products and the teams behind them.

From time-to-time we host DemoCamp Niagara to provide five local entrepreneurs with the opportunity to show-off the tech products they've built. Each product gets a 5-minute demo followed by a 5-minute question and answer period. We even throw in free snacks and an inspirational keynote.

Some alumni of DemoCamp Niagara include these local rockstars: Every1Games, PixelNAUTS, Phantom Compass, Upper Rapids, Niagara Artists Centre, Furi Enterprises, Protecht, Mulberry Media, Glacier Digital, and Brock University.

This event is suitable for everyone.

Our Story

Software Niagara was founded in 2012. Inspired by grassroots tech communities that were popping up in nearby cities, like Software Hamilton and Startup North, a couple local developers set out to create a similar community in the Niagara Region. Over the years, we have organized numerous DemoCamps, Hackathons, and other meetups. And until this day, thanks to our volunteers and supporters, we continue to organize events for the tech community in the spirit of our mission.

Our mission is to foster a community in Niagara that encourages and supports software development and the creation of software-based businesses.

We are a grassroots community. Our events, meetup group, and forum are all organized and run by a group of volunteers that has continued to grow over the years. While we encourage everyone to come out to our events and be part of our community, we also encourage everyone to volunteer with Software Niagara and help shape the future of our community. Help us build the tech community that you want.
