We can do a lot in an hour!

I’m feeling pretty proud this week. With more than 25 years helping local business better use and manage their technology we have a lot of experience … and a lot of knowledge that we like to share.

And last week Triware got to be part of something extra special.

Have you heard about about the Hour of Code. It’s an international movement that believes every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Teachers and students around the world have been starting with an hour of code … one hour, for every student, where they learn the basics of coding.

The basics that one day may help kids pick a career in computer science. The basics that one day may help the career seeker of the future attain a high paying job. The basics that one day may help the entrepreneur of the future build an app, a website or a program that solves a local, regional or global problems. The basics that one day will undoubtedly help the future of Newfoundland and Labrador be better, stronger and more competitive. More innovative.

Mike, one of our lead developers, gave his time this week and helped guide kids at a local school with their hour of code. We supported him fully … and even pitched in with some juice and snacks for the students after their lesson in coding.

We were too proud of Mike, and I guess ourselves a little (but mainly Mike), to not share this experience with you. In fact we feel so good about this cause, and the results, that we’ve already committed to continue with similar efforts in 2017 through NATI.

Well done Mike. And well done to all our local teachers and students who make special experiences like this possible.

Staying connected with a community

Corner Brook
As the largest city in Western Newfoundland, Corner Brook needed a website developer that could help address the needs of their residents, business and visitors while providing an exceptional online experience.

Early into this project we knew the end result would be terrific. Our relationship with the City of Corner Brook meant we had a great understanding of their operations, and we understood their need for a modern and intuitive design as well as the ability for visitors to easily find relevant information. A focus on great imagery and effective navigation, combined with an amazing search and a ‘browse by topic’ strategy, was essential to success.

Working alongside the communications, administration and technical team at Corner Brook, we stepped in and helped the City organize, structure and layout a modern site that included responsive design as part of their small screen strategy. This flexibility provides options as the site grows, and using WordPress’ intuitive interface makes updating the site user friendly and easy. Now City residents, businesses and visitors can easily find and connect with the information they need.

They were thrilled with the results: www.cornerbrook.com
