We’re excited to announce we’ll be having our official launch event this month on Friday 29 and Saturday 30th November, along with a series of talks and a hackathon. We’ve also got some hands on workshops scheduled for the first week in December including Project Management Methodologies and an Introduction to Mobile App Development.

We’ve got a few surprise goodies that we’ll have on show and we have a guest speaker, Simon Stewart from nVisionIT who’ll be presenting some interesting topics.

We’ve taken a very different approach with the hackathon and it’s open to Designers, Developers or any open minded people who feel they can add value to the project. There are a few different prize categories, so make sure to pop in and see if you could win some of the bounty.
