Hard to believe it has been almost five years already … wow time flies.

A lot has happened here at 246 Queen Street since May 26th 2008 on opening day. Almost every user group in the Ottawa web and mobile space started, reformed or touched down here at some point. The downtown tech scene has really blossomed since those early days and there is now so much going on that it is really difficult to keep track of. TheCodeFactory is proud of having helped facilitate many of the groups and played an active and hands-on role.

Why are we moving?

I think our new location will actually service our clients better … we are closer to Elgin Street, a little farther away from the government part of downtown and closer to more amenities.

We are expanding. Our new space is 50% larger than our Queen Street location and it gives us the opportunity to go from TheCodeFactory 1.0 to 2.0. Time stands still for no one and our business has evolved a lot in the past few years. There are so many lessons learned (many of them related to clauses in leases) but, that is a story for another day.

Where is the new location?

We’ll announce the location on the blog in a few weeks.
