Wake Up Victoria :: Free Coffee

In honour of coffee, and how much we love it here at CloverPoint, we have decided to make an event out of Wake up Victoria this Friday, September 28th 2012 from early until 10:00 AM.

What is ‘Wake Up Victoria’ you ask? Well the Downtown Victoria Business Association (DVBA), and Downtown Victoria cafes are giving away free coffee as a thank you. That’s right, I said FREE! Just bring your own mug to any of the locations on this map, and enjoy your delicious coffee.

The crew at CloverPoint will be touring the town searching for the best coffee (and giving away free stickers if you find us). Follow us as we post all the photos on MapSocial and tweet about our adventures. If you see us be sure to say hello!

Like MapSocial on Facebook and we will invite YOU to post YOUR downtown cafe pictures. Who knows, we may even buy you lunch if we think the photo is worthy!

Thanks to the Downtown Victoria Business Association and all the cafes downtown. We’ll see you on Friday!


A CloverPoint update.

WOW, January flew by at the Office. Most people enjoyed a nice break over the holidays, and came back fully rested. It is a good thing too, as 2012 is off to a blazing start.

Here is a little update c/o Bart Konings, Master of the universe, on what has been brewing in the cauldron that is CloverPoint

Recent Achievements:

Microsoft meeting with Spatial Ed! Several members of the team crossed the border to meet with some of our Southern neighbours in Redmond. Expect to hear more as the follow-up discussions get scheduled.

The latest build of Insight Community Planning has found its way to the UBC servers. We still have a little work to do before we can put a bow on it, but to my eyes it has never looked better and will only improve from here (I know, I know, you’re thinking “how is that even possible!?” – wait and see, my friends, just wait and see).

Speaking of releases, coming to a Land Registry Office near you is the Huu-ay-aht licensed Insight land registry application. This was a big hit at the recent Aboriginal Land Conference that we attended in Vancouver last week, so expect to hear about new developments in the weeks ahead.

Our GIS team is rocking it out as we head into March madness, and they still find time to help out with little issues that pop up.

Looming Victories:

Deja-vu? Not this time! The first release of MapSocial is fast approaching, and interest is continuing to rise. I had a look at it yesterday – prepare to be amazed!

Our partners at Stantec are continuing to push Insight into their client facing solutions. Both University of Alberta and BCIT should be starting up soon, and we’re expecting plenty of excitement to come out of Buildex this week.

Upcoming Events:

It’s confirmed, CloverPoint is moving downtown! More details on the new location as we get closer to the move.

That’s all for now, folks.

If you have any questions about anything that goes on at the office don’t hesitate to ask!
