Wow, what an amazing weekend! Check out our 60 second video:
Tech Exeter and The Met Office are proud to bring the NASA Space Apps Challenge to the South West. 2019 marks the eigth year that the Met Office has hosted a Space Apps event, and this year is going to be bigger than ever!
The weekend will be about meeting new people and solving interesting
challenges together. Don’t let the ‘Apps’ part put you off, the best
teams are often the most diverse teams in terms of age, skills and
experience. We have seen great projects made entirely from cardboard!

Following Kris’s comments on the debate about the lack of diversity at the Bristech conference, I felt inspired to post to the website for the first time since Jacob and I joined Kris as leaders of the community.
Many of you will already know that TechExeter is entirely volunteer-led, and with a demanding full-time job, an old thatch cottage to renovate, and the challenge of fitting everything we’re expected to do into one life these days, taking on the responsibility of helping to lead a vibrant, active community (with amazing events like GAME>PLAY and the conference to organise) has been a big commitment. I love the community and getting involved, but there was one very clear reason that drove me to get involved, and that was my passion for improving diversity in tech.
Hey I am Ivo. I am on an internship with the Exeter City Council till middle of December. In this time I also support TechExeter wherever I can.
A few words about me. I am 19 years old and from Hamburg, Germany. I completed my A-Levels last summer (2018). After that I was travelling for 2 month through France, North-Italy and the alps. In the winter I worked as a ski instructor in Austria for 4 month. In May I was 3 weeks in San Francisco and Hawaii. And now I am here in Exeter since middle of July.
I am looking forward to be helping with the upcoming conference, meetups and working on Space Apps. I hope to meet some of you at those events.
