What we're about

What started as a small group of developers & designers who share an interest in Ruby has evolved into something larger - Digital East Anglia. We have the drive and desire to bring Norfolk's thriving digital technology community cutting edge content & skills. We want to focus on Internet of Things (IoT), AI, 3rd Party tools & services and a few user groups such as NRUG, AWS & we want to ensure that our content is beginner friendly as well as hardcore technical, but more than that, we want it to be driven by you - the community.

We will also be a home for The Things Network Norfolk & Suffolk meetup that will be organised by Paul Foster, Microsoft.

The Things Network has a strong (and awesome) community which is very active. We are thrilled to see so many people using our platforms, discussing use cases & helping each other out in the world of loT. Take a look for yourself!

Norwich now hosts two gateways connected to The Things Network enabling all to experiment with IoT. Join the Norfolk community to learn how to get started and specific skills to enable you to build your ideas as sensor nodes, or even to build and host your own gateway – extending the Norwich network.

The network is free to use under a fair use policy. See https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/community/norfolk/ for more information!

Matt & Jo Bennett-Lovesey will continue to organise NRUG and it will still be hosted in the SoftApps offices.

If you would like to know more, or want to present at DEA, send a message to Emily or Ryan and for all NRUG things contact Matthew Bennett-Lovesey or bring it up at a meeting!

dev://east 2019

Ipswich Town Hall & Corn Exchange

What: dev://east When: 15th March 2019 Where: Ipswich Corn Exchange How Much: £25 incl. food & drink on the day Get Your Tickets: https://deveast.uk/#eventbrite View Our Agenda: https://deveast.uk/agenda-2019/ dev://east isn’t like most conferences, our first aim is to have fun as a community and also to showcase some of the truly talented hidden treasures from around the region of the East of England, some of whom have made amazing steps to dare I say, innovate the sector and provide remarkable solutions to some really complex real world problems or to have filled a gap, supporting the growth and skills of the sector in a unique way. Last year was filled with inspirational speakers who are using technology to solve real problems or supporting the tech community in unique ways this year aiming to do the same AND we're also including a whole track dedicated to software development. We recognise the tech sector is so much more than coding and software clean coding or Agilent standards. It includes researchers, scientists, designers, User experience based market validation, Q& A, marketers, PR and the odd recruiter or too and of course the unicorn visionary’s that “make it happen”. dev://east seeks to showcase such talent and special interest organisations whilst including some inspirational friendly technical content to keep our region up to date on emerging sectors such as Low Power Wide ARea Networks like LoTa & SigFox, IoT and Edge AI computing with a focus on how these have been applied to solve real world problems that benefit us all and demonstrate how technology can be used for social benefit and be commercially viable.
