Wednesday really is the new Black

Looks like its a busy Wednesday .. it is the Business showcase but it seems like everyone loves a Wednesday, we have even managed to clash with ourselves – running our Bristol GGD #76 Digital Exclusion and Double Diamonds with BJSS with our workshop Wednesdays (more details below!). Hopefully, it means we will all be well fed with pizza by the end of the night and we are obviously on trend!

Our other news is that we have now set up a jobs board which allows our Tech3Shed Careers Fair sponsors and our Women’s tech Hub members to advertise their roles as part of their member/sponsorship offerings. The sponsorship package for being part of the Bristol Tech Fair is also ready this week so mail us on info@bristoltechfair.org for info! .. there will be more info coming in the next few weeks! There also happen to be a couple of big Conferences on this week

B-sides – which is a massive London cyber Conference

What is BSides Bristol?

BSides Bristol is a two-day infosec community event run under the BSides Security movement. It’s the first BSides event to be run in the south west following the success of other UK BSides events like BSides London and BSides Manchester, with a seperate core team. It’s coming to town this week 20th – 21st June 2019 at UWE

Who should come?

Absolutely anybody interested in InfoSec disciplines like Penetration Testing, Digital Forensics, Incident Response, or generic Cyber Security. You don’t have to work in InfoSec to attend; all you need is a spark of interest! We’re hoping to capture a pool of cyber-ness from the south west primarily, attracting people from Bristol, Cardiff, Bath and Gloucester, as well as visitors from around the country and the world.

Collaborate Bristol 2019

Collaborate Bristol is The South West’s leading UX, Ai and Design conference. The conference returns for the seventh year running, aimed at encouraging sharing, learning and networking within the digital community.
