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): This month we welcome Sophie Jones from Econolyst (http://econolyst.co.uk/), the 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing people.
Sophie says: "I'll be giving an overview of 3D printing and additive manufacturing today - what it is, how it works and why everyone's getting so excited about it, as well as what some of the key challenges that the industry's facing. We'll be taking a gander at some of the really fantastic examples of where it's being used and where we reckon it will be used in the future."
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.
