Tuesday: Drink Coffee & Write Code

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

COFFEE & CODE!!!!

Veterans of the group know what's-what. However, if you're new, follow these simple rules:

1) Show up at ANY time between 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm and for ANY length of time.

No pressure to have to meetup at a specific time or stay until the end. If you're a keener, you can even show up earlier and stay later; it's totally up to you!

NOTE: We often head to a bar called Hitch a block east of the café once we're done coding 🙂

2) Bring a project!

It can be a game, a website, or a learning resource you're using to learn how to code. All levels of expertise are welcome and I strongly encourage you to ask questions, exchange ideas, debate coding practices, or whatever tickles your fancy. Come ready to chat or come with headphones so you can concentrate 😉

3) Keep it casual.

We're meeting up so can meet fellow coders and have fun coding in a group (because, let's face it, coding by yourself isn't always fun).

Happy Coding!

RBCDisruptors: The Spin Master [Toy] Story

Come hear the story of how it all happened from its founder, and how they’re continuing to grow.

Ronnen Haray has helped built a global toy empire by innovating and disrupting.

It all began with modest roots in London, Ontario, back in 1994, where two childhood friends from the Western Ivey Business School pooled together $10,000 to purchase the license to an Israeli toy, the Earth Buddy. They ended up selling half a million units to K-Mart, and Spin Master the company was officially born.

What began as a three person team now is now a publically-owned company with over 1600 employees all over the globe. Twenty-four years later, a string of commercial successes such as Air Hogs, Devil Sticks, Bakugan, Hatchimals and Paw Patrol have transformed Spin Master into the world's fourth-largest toy maker, with sales exceeding $1.5 billion last year.
 
But Spin Master’s journey to the top wasn’t a smooth ride by any means – the company experienced big ups and downs, including large scale layoffs, several pivots, failed products and quickly realized they needed to constantly identify opportunities for innovation in the highly-competitive (and fickle) toy industry.
 
Come hear the story of how it all happened from its founder, and how they’re continuing to grow in the $88B+ global toy market through innovation, diversification and strategic acquisitions.
