Vancouver User Group

We've had a couple of meetings and I'm the keeper of the emails and lists, but would rather use a collaborative space. If you want to be part of our group, you can reply to this thread (or email me directly if you want: holly at sparkandco dot ca).

A group of us met this week and we shared some resources that I'd like to put up here.

I've proposed that we meet again the week of July 20th.

You can click on a name and if they are open to being contacted, just click the "contact me" option. You are welcome to email me: holly at sparkandco dot ca.

For our group, we try to keep communication in this thread, so that it's open. I do have emails of folks who are interested, but would rather you subscribe to the thread to keep updated, mostly so I don't miss people or be the bottleneck in communication.

No registration required, just come along to the meeting. 

We look forward to meeting you.

Hi Everyone,

On Monday June 6th, we'll be meeting in Room C.235 at Robson Square. If you haven't been here before, note that all "C" labels designate the classroom spaces on the bottom level (the "dungeon") of the Square. 

When you come in through the main doors you'll be on the Plaza level. Go one level down using the big set of concrete stairs and head to your left. Room C.235 is down the hallway that is on the left-most (east side) of the building. 

If you are parking in the parkade, use the elevator or stairs to go up one level (to "C") and head left out of either the stairwell or the elevator.

If you get lost, feel free to text or call my cell: 604-220-0409. Remember you are welcome to bring in drinks/snacks, as there are limited options in the building.

Hi all, it was such a pleasure meeting everyone to share conversation and ideas with at the last get together in June. I have inadvertently misplaced the contact info some of you shared with me when we concluded the meeting (read into this disorganized reorganization of home office after moving). I'm sure I have the information in a very very safe place and will confirm that with you as soon as I find it.

In the interim, my contact info is listed below should you have any interest or reason in wanting to connect. :-) I'll be talking to Holly at some point over the next week and while doing so will broach the idea of another gathering. It will be interesting to hear what people got up to over the summer and see what we can do and how we can support each other professionally moving forward.

Hi Everyone,

The Articulate Roadshow is just around the corner. It will be my first time attending this event and I'm getting excited about it!  Does anybody want to get together for dinner and/or drinks after the final day (October 13th)?  I thought it might be nice to catch up with what what we are doing professionally, share our thoughts about the workshop and  just chat over a glass of wine :)

If interested, let me know and I'll make reservations.  I'm thinking we could meet around 5:00 pm somewhere close to the B.C.I.T. campus. Rogue Kitchen on Water Street is a good option (large space, close to skytrain). Of course, I'm open to suggestions if anyone has some.  Talk to you all soon.

Hi Kima,

I realize I kind of dropped the ball on this, but wanted to let you know that the dinner is still a go tonight in case you are interested in joining us. We are planning to meet around 5:00.   My number is 604-679-8540.  Shoot me a text if you want to check in later. I'm pretty sure we decided on Rogue kitchen.

Hi everyone,

We've confirmed the room for our Nov 9th meet up here at Robson Square. We have room C235 (same one as last time for those that were here; for those that are new, scroll up to my previous posting for directions). We will run the session from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

This is going to be a hands-on session, so bring your laptop with you. We'll be exploring the world of the E-learning Heroes challenges (
