Canadian Web Hosting sponsors the Society for Kids at Tennis (KATS)

Canadian Web Hosting is proud to announce their second year sponsorship of the Society for Kids at Tennis (KATS).

Founder and General Manager of KATS Sy Silverberg, is a retired physician. At age 72, he and his wife Catarina wanted to give back to their community and so they started their own non-profit society to provide children in poor financial circumstances with an opportunity to play tennis for free.

Board of Tennis BC presents Sy Silverberg with 2014 "Excellence Award"/KATS

Sy wanted to help these children foster physical, emotional, and social well-being. He believed in setting kids up for success so that they can develop a sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Physical activity would also provide significant benefits in a society where childhood obesity is climbing at an alarming rate.

Besides free equipment and instruction, KATS employs the Tennis Canada “progressive tennis” approach. KATS uses age-appropriate racquets, courts, and balls because adult-intended equipment can be overwhelming and frustrating for younger people to use. Sy believes that this will help build their confidence, especially for those who are not “natural athletes”.

Through their partnership with local community centres and inter-cultural centres, KATS has instructed 112 kids and conducted 97 hours of lessons in their first spring and summer of operation. Sy plans to work with six lowest-income schools in the near future and anticipate that close to a 1000 kids will sign up with KATS next spring.

WordCamp Victoria 2013 Recap

Last Saturday, Canadian Cloud Hosting (www.cacloud.com) proudly sponsored WordCamp Victoria 2013 at the platinum level and as expected and as anticipated, we knew that our team would enjoy spending the day with a community full of WordPress enthusiasts. We even got to meet Miss 604 (one of Canada’s most famous independent bloggers) who’s known as Rebecca Bollwitt and we even had the pleasure to raffle off a signed copy of her latest book. During our session, we enjoyed sharing our one-click WordPress install feature and some of our web hosting packages. The University of Victoria was a great venue to spend time with both passionate users, eager developers and many bloggers for an entire day of learning and connecting.

Our team with WordCamp Victoria organizer, Paul Holmes

On our Facebook Page, we snapped a few pictures during the event and we also took the time to capture a round up of some of the attendees' own recaps including other relevant links below. If we missed yours, we invite you to tweet us your link at @cawebhosting or leave us a comment below. Overall, WordCamp Victoria was a great success and we look forward to sponsoring more community events this year.

Canadian Cloud Hosting Sponsors WordCamp Victoria 2013

A happy new year 2013 means new events to sponsor!

Two months ago, we had the pleasure to sponsor WordCamp and BuddyCamp 2012 in Vancouver and with less than two weeks to go, we're proud to announce that Canadian Cloud Hosting is going to sponsor WordCamp Victoria 2013. What a fun way for our team to kick off the new year with the tech community! We love how dynamic the WordPress community is no matter which area we find ourselves in. The event welcomes users and developers of all levels including bloggers, small business owners, designers and any other WordPress enthusiasts. Our team is quite familiar with the day format and we're anticipating this event to be another great learning experience for every attendees. Their motto goes as such, "The definitive educational event for WordPress enthusiasts" and we are super excited to be a part of this event!

Hosted on January 12th, 2013 at the University of Victoria

WordCamp Victoria will be held on Saturday, January 12th, 2013 from 8 am to 5 pm at the University of Victoria campus. Tickets are only $20 excluding HST.  The full line up of speakers covers a wide range of interest including sessions like Plugin Development 101, Non-Technical Hacks for WordPress Content Marketing, and even, WordPress Security. Our very own session from 1:00 to 1:50 pm is called "Webhosting 101: One-Click WordPress Install" with Kings and Matt that will be catered to beginner to intermediate users looking to learn more about setting up their own sites and for those users who are looking to learn more about webhosting as a whole.

If you're planning on attending, we invite you to stop by our table to introduce yourself and especially, since we'll be raffling off some great prizes including Miss 604's latest book through a Twitter contest, some free hosting and we'll even have some free teeshirts for you to take home. 2013 is here and as a company, we would like to continue showing our community involvement and commitment to give back to our local, tech community.

Finally, please, don't forget that you can connect with us ahead of time on social media through Twitter at @cawebhosting, or through our Facebook Page. See you in Victoria, BC!

Last Saturday, we (Canadian Cloud Hosting - www.cacloud.com) proudly sponsored WordCamp Vancouver 2012 at the platinum level and the following next two days, we went one step further by supporting the first ever BuddyCamp in the world. In addition to being present, we also made sure to be available virtually as we pride ourselves in being a social brand and we really enjoyed connecting with every BuddyPress enthusiasts.

Check out @JonJennings on Twitter! He's one of the participants who highly engaged with us.

Over those two days, on Sunday, October 14th, and Monday, October 15th, we enjoyed spending time with a more intimate crowd, and of course, we gave free swag and shared more information about Canadian Cloud Hosting with anyone who visited our table. On Monday, the organizers invited us to run a hands' on workshop where we had the pleasure and opportunity to show how easy it was to install WordPress onto CA Cloud Hosting, then, after BuddyPress was set up, a small group worked on an e-book using this collaborative plugin, BuddyPress. Speaking of free stuff, if you were an in-person or virtual participant, we invite you to come visit us and try our cloud hosting services at www.cacloud.com by using our promotional code CACLOUDBP30 to receive an exclusive 30% off. Since this was a very special and one-of-a-kind event, we're extending our promo code to run through November 30th, 2012.

Lastly, we took the time to curate BuddyCamp Vancouver 2012 for the BuddyPress community worldwide, which you can share with your peers. If we missed your own recaps and if you'd like to be included, please, tweet us at @cawebhosting. Being a part of such a collaborative, genuine and eager group made it a true honour for us to sponsor the first ever BuddyCamp. If you're on Facebook, we shared our event photos and if you catch yourself in any of them, we invite you to tag yourself. We already look forward to our next event sponsorship, so if you have any suggestions, please leave us a comment below.

WordCamp Vancouver 2012 Recap

Last weekend, we (Canadian Cloud Hosting - www.cacloud.com) had the honour and pleasure of sponsoring WordCamp Vancouver 2012 at the platinum level and we really enjoyed supporting such a great group of local WordPress enthusiasts including developers, bloggers, college professors and connecting with everyone who stopped by our table or engaged with us on Twitter.

If you stopped by to drop off a business card for our free raffle to win free hosting for a year but didn't hear from us, you can still benefit from being a participant. You can visit our site at www.cacloud.com and use our promotional code CACLOUDWP30 to receive an exclusive 30% off. But, you must act quickly before the code expires on October 31st, 2012.

Finally, we curated most of WordCamp Vancouver 2012 and whether you were on site or not, you can share this summary with your friends and tweet us at @cawebhosting if you'd like us to add any relevant online content like your own recaps. We had a lot of fun being a part of this event and up next, we have BuddyCamp notes to share with you, so in the meantime, you can peruse our own event photos through one of our Pinterest boards and/or our Facebook album. While you're there, feel free to "like" our page, you never know what awesome discounts we'll hand out in the future, so don't miss out!
