Tech3Shed is over- but we’re still standing

BIG THANKS to everyone who came along to our Tech3Shed Careers Fair, we loved it and hope that everyone who came did too. The companies were amazing with their willingness to engage with the attendees and not only discuss their job openings but also offering careers advice in many cases. We thought you were wonderful and want to say a big thank you for taking the risk in a new venture and supporting it. The feedback we had from the attendees was really positive so let’s hope that this results in filling some of the job roles on show at the event. We will be doing a write up of the companies on the Careers website and the sponsoring companies will also have a years membership so expect to hear more from us about them in the coming weeks.

Also – not to be forgotten, Big thanks to the builders and staff at desklodge for getting the floor ready (they were laying carpet as we set up!) and to our volunteers who were brilliant for supporting us!

OpenData is spending the weekend Jamming!

Bristol Open Data Jam / Hackathon

Come along to our two-day data jam and help make a bit of magic for Bristol.

Join us for a weekend of constructive fun. Together we will develop projects that unite great ideas, awesome digital and creative skills with open data (powered by the Bristol Open Data Platform, Bristol API, …).

You’ll be helping Bristol create ways of developing our local creativity and culture, and a fair and inclusive economy. In exchange, we will provide technical support, interesting speakers, free food and drinks as well as the opportunity to a prize.

Open to techies and non-techies :).
