I've been emailed off list that this group is effectively
leaderless at the moment as Paul is very busy. It would be a shame
if that meant this group missed out on being involved in the
upcoming UWE Event. Here are all the details, if someone (or several
of you) from this group wants to take up the offer please get in
I'd like to touch base with you with regards to an event I'm
organising at UWE. At the moment I'm contacting all of the local
IT/Developer groups to assess their interest in participating.
Essentially the event is a Workshop where each group can present
talks, promoting themselves, their chosen language/platform, and
anything they think is interesting from their area. Side rooms would
be available for hands on tutorials.
Invitation to the event would be open to the groups and their
members, UWE staff and students, as well as the local IT &
business community at large.
The aim of the event is to establish a closer connection between
UWE's Computer Science department and the local IT & business
Each group has the opportunity to do a presentation about
themselves, what they are about, what they do, meets, tech talks,
etc. Then they have the option to follow on with a tech talk in
their chosen area.
