What we're about

This group is for anyone living or working in or around Cheltenham/Gloucester who would be interested in talks and events around software development.

If you're in the local area then it would be great to see you at one of our events. This group will hopefully provide a platform for the tech community to exchange ideas and keep up to date with the latest movements and shifts in software development.

The plan is to hold the meetups every other month - with 1 or 2 speakers on the roster. As we build momentum and more attendees in the upcoming events, we are likely to do stuff like pub meets, lightening talks etc.

So, if you enjoy technology and would like to socialise with fellow technologists, then please come along to one of our events.

We look forward to see you there!
