Happy New Year!

The team at Point Alliance is ready for another great year! With all of the successes and excitement of 2014 behind us, we are looking forward to an even more exciting and fulfilling year of fascinating projects as we continue to build long and lasting relationships with our clients and partners.

As one of the exclusive Premier Xamarin Consulting Partners, Point Alliance has been able to leverage Xamarin on the creation of three brand new projects, set to be complete by late January 2015.

Hubub is the best digital platform for exploring and discussing interests.

A “hubub” is a personal interest channel. Users can join existing hububs on subjects ranging from municipal politics and entertainment to the Toronto Maple Leafs, or start their own hububs on any topic. Hububs display a mosaic of videos, articles, blogs, and polls, as well as innovative features like one-on-one debates. Some hububs host conversations among thousands of people from all over the world, while others serve as a continuous, visual search feed for individual users.
