This past week TheCodeFactory was fortunate enough to host Blindside’s “BigBlueButton Summit.” BigBlueButton developers arrived en masse at TheCodeFactory from Brazil on Monday of last week. The five day conference concluded on Friday and, after some creativity with the windows and an ethernet cable, it was a rousing success.

BigBlueButton is open source web conferencing software which is used predominantly by post-secondary education institutions to enable and enhance online learning. The software originated at Carleton University and is now being used by a wide variety of schools. I have personally used Big Blue Button’s software while taking online courses at Carleton and the tool is absolutely exceptional. It was a pleasure to be able to meet the other half of the Big Blue Button team and we thank them for hosting their summit at TheCodeFactory.

From all of us at TheCodeFactory, a big congratulations to Blindside on a great summit meeting and all the best going forward!
