Once again, we were pleased with the phenomenal turnout to VendAsta’s Ideas On Tap. The beer was flowing and the talk was non-stop with some of Saskatoon’s best computer software entrepreneurs.

We kicked off the afternoon with Kevin Kindrachuk, the CEO of Kijenga. Kijenga is the quickest and easiest way to find a contractor. How? All you do is post a project on Kijenga and the contractors find you. Watch as Kevin demonstrates:

Next up were the lovely Katherine Regnier and Romeo Iula to talk about their company Coconut Calendar - a hassle-free online appointment schedule system for businesses with an edge!

The crowd had so many questions that we had to chop the video into two parts:

We also had a quick demo from VendAsta’s very own Jason Coutu who explained the Lean Coffee trend.

Last, but certainly not the least, was Kari Halsted to get us up to speed on Saskatoon's next Barcamp. BarCamps are open conferences with participatory events whose content is provided by participants. Kari will fill you in with the details:
