What we're about

Do you build software, wrangle data, or craft digital experiences? Are you tired of having to voyage out to Liverpool or Manchester to meet like-minded devs? Well this is the meetup for you. Whether you do it for the fun or the profit, all are welcome to come along, network, and learn new things!

📅📌When and Where

We've held a handful of Meetups in 2019 and we're not done yet! We aim to run every month.

The venue is Paymentshield on the Kew business park.

The event runs 6pm - 8pm with snacks and drinks provided.


The meetup is open to everyone including hobbyists, students, and the tech-curious. The main audience is professional digital workers and undergrads.

We are working on a Code of Conduct which we plan to enforce, to build a healthy community where everyone feels welcome.


We are not being fussy about tech stack as Southport is a fairly small catchment area! So we are open to everything from .Net to MEAN, Excel scripters to Pythonistas.

We hope that you can bring what you find interesting to the group, because we will probably find it interesting too!

📢 Format

We have a techy main talk and Q+A, all wrapped up in some nice coffee and chatting times.

In future occasions, we'd like to have more "lightning talk" slots, as well as time for everyone to network and demo what you're working on.
