What we're about

ProductTank Edinburgh (#ProductTankEdi) is a bi-monthly meetup which deep dives into product design, development, management & marketing.

Our events are FREE & feature guest talks on designing and building great web and mobile products, including topics such as design, agile processes, business models, using metrics, user experience, and more. We also always build in time for networking, and a good old-fashioned chin-wag over a beverage or a slice of pizza!

Our events are public, but we ask everyone to provide a little information about themselves when they register so that we can build a good community. There are also a number of ways to engage with our community: You can see videos of the speakers on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/producttankedi), photos of the events & attendees on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ProductTankEdi/) & join in the conversation on Twitter (https://twitter.com/ProductTankEdi).
