Geekeasy Derby: January 2014

Geekeasy is a relaxed gathering of geeky/techy/creative types in Derby, who have an interest in learning and perhaps working together. It's very friendly, and you'll find an interesting mix of people to talk to.

Geek Speak (around 6.30pm): We'll hear from Jo McKiernan, who'll be talking to us about how Derby is developing its digital portfolio, including the introduction of free Wifi across the city and co-working spaces.

After the talk we'll carry on chatting, drinking and chowing down on samosas. Invite a friend, and help spread the geeky word!

All types of geek are welcome: creative, technical, digital, engineering, science, space, web, design, chic geeks and even non-geeks.

      As you will know, Geekeasy is a very DIY affair! Rob, we would love to borrow your amp and mic - perhaps we could start with the smallest amp and see how we go? :-)
