We're so excited for you to join us in Toronto next month!

Since you last heard from us, we announced several more speakers and a social at the Lula Lounge.

New Speakers

We recently unveiled another talented slate of Causal Islands speakers! 🎉

Ramsay Nasser is a game designer, media artist, computer scientist, and educator. He is one of the founding worker-owners of the EMMA Technology Cooperative where he builds everything from interactive experiences to Lisp compilers for clients all across the world. Ramsay will be giving a talk that explores what a robust and sustainable future of our craft might look like and steps we can take  today.

Edwin Brady is a Reader in Computer Science at the University of St Andrews, interested in making state of the art programming language techniques accessible to software developers and practitioners. This involves type theory, dependently typed functional programming, compilers and metaprogramming. He is currently working on a new implementation of Idris, a dependently typed functional programming language.

David Ogborn is an artist programmer and artist researcher, committed to unfolding the potential for algorithms and computation to be sites of play, curiosity, and collaboration. This work takes the form of solo and ensemble performances of live coding and network music, the development of software to be used by artists, students, teachers, and researchers, and writing that attempts to both expand and unsettle these activities. He is a founding member of McMaster's Cybernetic Orchestra - a live coding laptop orchestra continuously active since 2010.

Toronto has a train and bus system called TTC. If you're flying into Toronto, the UP Express train from Pearson Airport to downtown Toronto or Union Station is very convenient.
