Silicon Canal Summer BBQ!

The Silicon Canal Beers meetup started pretty much a year ago. We decided on a venue (The Drop Forge in the JQ), and the first few events took place on their roof terrace, in sunshine. The 'Silicon Canal' name has since appeared in national press and has received a lot of attention.

A year on, we want to build on the momentum of the Silicon Canal concept in general, and hold a Summer BBQ extravaganza at Fazeley Studios in Digbeth.

The plan is to gather Birmingham's tech/startup/creative community together on the evening of 6th August for burgers, beers and mingling, with the usual feel of Silicon Canal - no agenda, just meeting great people and celebrating the exciting community we have here. We are also excited to be supported by Fazeley Studios itself, and hold a Silicon Canal event in a different area of the city known for its creativity and startup scene.

We will be working with event sponsors to make this event free (BBQ food and some drinks free), so no excuses for not coming!

    Hi All, Sorry Ted Ryan and I didn't make this BBQ - I was hosting an event showing people (not all coders or techy) how to Create and embed maps using Google Fusion Tables and Ted was attending and learning.

    We are organising an event with Open Mercia in Sept or Oct to start compiling a register of data scientists who might be interested in "data for good" i.e. working with charities or community groups on using their data, open data etc to measure and show impact - please contact me if this would be of interest to anyone here.

    Many thanks

    Pauline

      Hi Pauline, I'd like to come along. We deal with mountains of data each day so it would be great to share ideas. Be great if you could forward the details once confirmed.

      August 13, 2014

    • Pauline R.

      Hi Tyrone, Thanks for responding. We're still finalising the details of the event, including the date and venue, so I'll get back to you again when I can tell you more. Thanks for your interest. Pauline

    My first time too - love to meet mobile and wearable developers interested in a new approach to memory problems and dementia. Oh and today is supposed to be my 'fast' day on the 5:2 regime. I could have a veggie wrap right? Or I may just fall off...

    Hi all - This is my first time attending a Silicon Canal event (although I have attended some open code sessions).

    I'm working on two startup ideas at the moment so if you are or have any of the following knowledge or skills I'd love to speak to you.

    - Selling to public sector (Colleges and Vocational Training Providers)
    - Large scale applications in Meteor.js (or any meteorjs xp)
    - Knowledge of the Driving Instructor sector
    - Small scale investors

    Looking forward to meeting all of you.

  • Chris P.

    Sadly I have the only excuse acceptable for not attending a startup event - I've got a pitching event that clashes...

    August 1, 2014

  • Daniel H.

    Can I just confirm, what is the location of this event? I ask because the website (http://siliconcanal.co.uk/silicon-canal-beers/) has a link to a google calendar (https://www.google.com/calendar/render?eid=Z3JscjNkcHRvNTc2aDA0MnBsZmQ5cGdiNDggc3RhcnR1cGRpZ2VzdC5jb21fNHJ1bzZqY29vMmhsOXFlMWgxOXZ1NnJ0OGtAZw&ctz&sf=true&output=xml) which says it's at The Drop Forge - but this page says it's at Fazeley Studios.

    I figure that Fazeley Studios is probably correct, but I figured it was worth double checking.

      PS, just posted about it on Birmingham.io: http://talk.birmingha...­
