A massive shout out goes to our sponsors – the One Planet MBA at the University of Exeter Business School – without them this event couldn’t take place!
We’re supporting this year’s “Nova” demoscene party running Friday 23rd June until Sunday 25th June in Budleigh Salterton. The weekend long event will showcase live acts and competitions in the evenings, and the daytime is used for people to socialise or work on their productions.
The demoscene is an international computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos: small, self-contained computer programs that produce audio-visual presentations. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills.

TechExeter’s Kris Sum is involved with running the network and audio/visual infrastructure for the party – check out his postmortem from an earlier event.
