My colleague Joey deVilla is brilliant.  He sets up the coolest events and really connects with the developer audience.  He’s now come up with an interesting concept called “Coffee and Code” where he picks a Toronto-based coffee house and spends the day there so developers can show up and chat with him.

I wish I had thought of it myself, but since I didn’t I decided to join him at today’s Coffee & Code in Toronto.  From Joey’s Coffee and Code Blog:

Yes, there’s going to be a Coffee and Code in Toronto this Friday, March 13th, and this time, it’s going to be midtown. I’ll be holding it at the Starbucks at Yonge at Davisville (1909 Yonge Street, right by Davisville subway station) from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m..

This particular Starbucks branch is pretty big, with a large second floor. A number of local groups, such as the Toronto Spanish Group, the “Mompreneurs” and other business networking groups have used it as a meetup location. The WiFi isn’t free, but if you have a Starbucks card with at least a $5 balance, you get two hours’ worth of wifi access at any wifi-equipped Starbucks every day.

I’m planning to show up for around 11AM and I’ll likely stay until around 3PM, so please drop by if you can and say hello!
