This week we are starting Follow Fridays, Blog Edition, this is to highlight some of the key supporters of our past work and give them a big kudos to what they have done in the community.
Thought I’d start off our first Follow Friday with a person that has inspired all of us a great deal in the past with the amount of work he has done in the Tech & Startup Community in Hamilton.
I am of course referring to the one and only Kevin Browne of Software Hamilton. I first met Kevin at the 3rd or 4th DemoCamp. Ever since then he has been a constant inspiration to me and the online video content I’ve created.
Kevin runs SoftwareHamilton an online community geared to help foster growth, create networking events, and really help grow Hamilton’s Software community. The site he runs also lets people in the Tech & Startup space know of any job openings, gives really good advice and articles that are by contributors that support his drive and determination to perpetuate this industry.
He has been a constant stream of inspiration to me, his sense of passion for what he has loved helped me drive forward with certain goals such as modelling Hamilton Web Series Meet-ups around his Startup Drinks.
The Tech & Startup community he helped bring together was also instrumental in combining my two passions, creating web series and startups. Which is how TechTalk4HamOnt now TechTalk X was born.
Kevin was also awarded the DiFizen of the Year award by Innovation Factory, I don’t think I have met anyone in my life that has been so driven has done so much in so little time as he has. He also helps co-ordinate DemoCamp which happens every 4 months or so, DemoCamp is a event that takes place that allows developers and startups pitch an idea or demo an application in front of a group of peers.
In closing, I think, it would be difficult to comprehend how instrumental Kevin Browne has been to the city of Hamilton unless you followed him right from the beginning. We often take for granted these individuals who are creating change within the city, sometimes that’s not the case.
Kevin has done a lot for one person, and this is why Kevin is the first Follow Friday for us he has taught us many things and connected us with many different people and for that we are humble and grateful to him for being the change he wishes to see in the city.
