Our lovely friends at Sparkol are running with TechSpark a Techie Brekkie event “Using video & animation to grow marketing reach & engagement” over at Desklodge House this week. They will show how their tool VideoScribe can be used to create your own videos for marketing, sales, HR or training purposes. See Videoscribe here

It’s free to attend and will take place on Thursday, 16 May from 8:00-9:30am. Registration is here: Techie Brekkie | Using video & animation to grow marketing reach & engagement.

The world’s first gameified Cyber conference is coming to Bristol!

We believe Cyber conferences should be fun and engaging – and open to all, regardless of experience. Thus BristolCyberCon was born!

At BristolCyberCon you’ll be incentivised to network with others through fun social engineering & gameification activities, encouraged to participate in the interactive events, and engage with our speakers throughout the day. We’ll also have our comedy duo doing cyber skits through the day (and in the bar afterwards) to keep the day enjoyable.

We’ve 4 interactive workshops, 2 hackathons, a Red Team vs Blue Team panel debate and 15+ inspiring speakers who will be discussing everything from social engineering your way into an office, building cyber diversity in the workplace, using GitOps to deploy software securely, to reverse engineering electric cars!

Introducing “Workshop Wednesdays”

Workshop Wednesdays

We have been discussing this for quite a while now and finally are getting it off the ground. Wierdly we can only pronounce it with a games programme style delivery – its …. “Workshop Wednesdays!” (sounding like captain cavemen the cartoon character).

So the plan is – that it will take place once every other week in the new Desklodge House on the 3rd floor from 6 – 9pm.

There are two large areas for coworking/peer-supported learning in a very similar remit to that of Codehub events. There are also a series of rooms in which we can do training shared projects or talks, these can host from 6 to 16 people and we are open to people contacting us if you wish to run something. The idea is that we may have one group learning a CRM such as Salesforce, for example, another running a UX group, then a python group, etc. The overall theme will be about collaborations and its mainly for mixed groups but some may be women only as its a WTHub initiative and we are aware that many women learn better in women-only environments.

We are looking for sponsor companies to support us with pizzas and drinks in return for an opportunity to present and commnicate either as an engagement or a recruitment piece. Women’s Tech Hub runs a no recruiter (other than an internal sponsor recruiter as noted above) and a strict social media policy which you can find in our Code of Conduct, the meetup is open to everyone (yes that includes men) so please join up and sign up if you want to come along.
