What we're about

This is a meetup group for people in the software, IT and associated digital industries in Cornwall. The main aim is to start building a stronger community of people working in digital industries in the far Southwest UK.

We are looking for anyone who is a developer, analyst, coder, geek, digital creative, online marketeer, or digi-other-type.

Anyone is free to join whether their digital activities are their job, business, work, hobby or educational course!

If people want then we can move the group to different locations.
