Why We Started

Think back many moons ago...

...all the way back in 2016 Canadian coding started as a simple YouTube Channel dedicated to helping developers in python!


Then Came Experience

Experience breeds excellence (hopefully)

Shortly after starting youtube videos I started working at a university and building experience. This experience included:

- Working with CMS systems at scale

- Doing user support and troubleshooting

- Doing technical troubleshooting

- Developing documentation


What I learned

About web development, and the community around it

Poor communication

We get insulted by others, lose trust for those We get back.

Tooling was not good

We get insulted by others, lose trust for those We get back.

Development was slow...

We get insulted by others, lose trust for those We get back.

A lot of bad info

We get insulted by others, lose trust for those We get back.

So, I decided to do something about it!

What was built

Started with tutorials & posts

It all started with simple python tutorials

-Channel Created on Jul 7, 2016, website in 2020


It all starts with information

We have gone through a ton of changes and improvements to our content over the years. We started with videos, and video series that have since adapted and become more refined. From videos introducting python, live coding packages, to tackling difficult topics like the windows registry and the one time pad .

We released the site source code & various posts as open source



Open Source

There have been many projects released that are open source from ezcv, to ahd, to the python package template, and many more (over 50!) projects. We have a commitment to developing great open source tools for developers.

We've been working on many projects that you can see out in the open. We have done plenty of commercial work as well!

-Since 2016 we've been contributing to open source


We build what you need, not what we want

When talking to many people we realized web development in our area was largely overpriced, took a long time, and often lacked basics like mobile support. Calgary deserves better than that, so we worked to build out tooling that made sense for people without breaking the bank. We're also working on tools that people can use for free to generate simple websites, like ezcv for beginner developers, ezprez for people who want web-based slideshows, and recently profilicity for total beginners. When those tools don't work we also offer our own services to help you get what you need!
