It's Co-Working Week at Kamloops Innovation

Kamloops Innovation is inviting all remote workers to test drive co-working this week and discover what the movement is all about — the trend that no office is the new office.

The B.C. Co-working Collective is spearheading Co-working Week and the local tech accelerator has a few things on the schedule, including free access to the co-working space at 348 Tranquille Rd.

Kamloops Innovation says co-working is based on the idea that people work better than they do alone. Remote workers or those starting their own business can access the shared workspace on a drop-in or regular basis — and they’re always advertising free coffee.

Richard Sullivan, the co-founder of local tech company Hummingbird Drones, will be there Tuesday for [email protected], a weekly event that gives one person the chance to share a quick 10-minute presentation and do a five-minute Q&A. It happens at 10 a.m. and topics vary from week to week.

Kamloops Innovation and MLA Todd Stone are hosting a tech social at Red Collar on Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., an opportunity to mingle with the startup community. They’ll also have the DevLounge set up and rigged with high-speed internet. It’ll be a place to plug in, work and connect with developers.

Other Co-working Week events include an Intro to Django workshop at The Generator on Wednesday and a developers lunch at Tangs Restaurant on Friday. The TRU Computer Science Club’s Django workshop is on campus from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and you don’t need knowledge of Python or HTML to participate. Register online. Developers will meet at Tangs at noon on Friday.
