About Niall
I'm a web developer and games designer. When I'm not out on contract, I work on my own sites and projects, or work on building up my client-base in order to build my business.

After the event, we will be heading to The Brewery Tap (http://www.brewerytapleeds.co.uk/) for further discussion and drinks.

Why not speak at a future event?

We are always looking for people to come and speak at our events. So if you have an idea for a talk, a discussion or just want to show folks what you have been working on, please get in touch. You don't need to be a professional speaker or even to have spoken in a group before.

If you don't want to do a talk, but are interested in hearing about a specific subject, or have an idea/problem, please get in touch and we will try and find someone who can help.
