What we're about

Bash! is an event for developers organised by developers. Since 2012 we have sought to bring interesting and thought-provoking speakers working at the cutting edge of software development to your doorstep.

The focus of Bash is unashamedly on current and upcoming trends in software. We don't focus on a specific language or technology but rather prefer to explore the full, rich tapestry of what is happening in the world of software. If it's interesting and relevant then it will be on our radar.

DevOps Bash

The Black Box

Hello folks! Getting this one in early, it's a few months off yet, but we just wanted to let you know that our first in-person event in 2 years will take place in the Black Box, March 2022. Hard to believe it's been so long but hopefully the wait will be worth it.

We have 2 great speakers lined up - Continuous Delivery and DevOps guru Dave Farley (you've read the book right!?), and High Performance computing expert Martin Thompson will both be in town, primarily for the Guinness but also to speak at Bash.

We'll update this page closer to the time, and provide more details on the actual talks. As per usual, there will be an open bar, for a while at least! Seats will be more limited than usual so can I politely ask that you only book a seat if you really intend going :)

Thanks. And looking forward to seeing you in March.

PS. We also hope to organise a couple more virtual events between now and then. We'll keep you posted.
