  • What a year we’ve had – a look back on another remarkable year! December 22, 2017

    As our 2017-year comes to an end I think it’s important to take time and reflect, acknowledge and celebrate. Reflections, in particular, allow us to take a breath and recognize the many remarkable things that have taken place, the inspiring people we have met, and the positive moments we have experienced. What a year we’ve had!

    2017 has been outstanding for both Digital Nova Scotia and many of our member companies. We have seen our industry grow, strengthen and collaborate – there was so much momentum in Nova Scotia! We have seen companies expand their teams, win multiple international awards, lead innovative conferences, and secure awesome new contracts.

    For the second consecutive year, female leaders and diversity champions were recognized at our Digital Diversity Awards, new generations of tech enthusiasts were exposed to our thriving tech sector through our Digital Discovery Camp (close to 200 campers by now), and over 50 members took part in DNS led professional development opportunities. It’s been a year full of milestones, achievements, and successes – I couldn’t be prouder and more fueled to work in such an innovative, driven and motivated industry. (more…)
