We are aware that quite a lot of events have been cancelled or postponed so we wanted to update you on tech events that have instead moved online. We’d love to see you still get involved.
This page will be continually updated as we learn of new online opportunities in the South West.
To let us know of online workshops, livestreams or other activities that aren’t currently listed, please contact us
April 9th onwards ThingsCamp is taking its Internet of Things (IoT) event online from April 9th for an experimental, virtual unconference over a few days. If you’re interested in taking part (it’s free) just fill in this form and they’ll be in touch with how it’ll work. Edit: some more details posted here
Future Sync Conference
April 16-17th “The event is switching to a hybrid conference for this year, one where the audience attends remotely. Our aim is to provide the exact same speaker lineup as already announced, through a blend of live and pre-recorded talks with supporting video content. This will be broadcast over the 16th and 17th April 2020, with live content on the 16th. “
March 27th FabLab Devon are starting some online workshops for children to start learning some basic skills. The first 30 minute online workshop is Friday 27th March 11am. The idea is for them to watch the tutorial, have a go and then share their designs! If you have children, please join in. The workshop will be on FabLab’s Facebook.
Digital Taunton Livestream
March 26th Digital Taunton are live streaming their monthly meeting on YouTube as opposed to their usual in-person event. Their talks will be focused on working in this new COVID-19 climate, with talks about remote working, promoting online presences, crisis planning and wellbeing. Feel free to tune in Thursday 26th March 7:30pm.
Join us at Exeter College, where we are engaging Exeter College students about the industry and making them aware of opportunities here in the South West. There will be three industry speakers presenting information about their job and their experience within their industry:
1. Jordan Peters, Independent Game Developer 2. Jacob Tomlinson from NVIDIA 3. Becky Lees from Greymatter
It is a chance for you to meet, interact and network with the college students (all specialising in IT or gaming), both before the presentations and afterwards during an hour networking session at the college café.
Event Description: Stephens Scown are running an innovative session exclusively for TechExeter and Digital Exeter members aimed to help tech businesses deal with a key issue which they often leave until too late: Trade Mark Registration. During this session they will walk you through the trade mark application process and you will have the opportunity to file your own application.
Many businesses do not realise the need to register their core business names, product lines and brand names as trade marks until it is too late. Not all marks are registerable so, before signing up, our expert team will be in touch to make sure you are eligible.
There is a one off cost of £200 plus VAT for this session (this is a massive 60% saving for our members!). Official filing fees will also need to be paid (£170 for the first class, £50 for each additional class); there is no VAT on official fees. Following the application, we will be appointed as your agent on the register and will keep you updated on the progress of your application
Please fill out the form linked below to register your interest and Stephens Scown will be in touch with further information.
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!
We held our first ever mini meetup at Exeter College with speakers from TechExeter and Digital Exeter – we often struggle with engaging young people so we decided to take our meetup directly to the students!
Al Mclintock, Industry Placement Liaison Officer initially came to speak to TechExeter earlier in the year to talk about T-levels, and she was thrilled with the idea that we could run a version of our meetup aimed directly at the students
After an introduction from Al and Myself (centre above), we had talks from Sarah Marks (right) – Head of Marketing and Communications at Rezcomm, and Rick Timmis (left) – Engineering Manager for Dell Boomi.
After the talks, the students came along to a networking session where we had a dozen members of our tech+digital community available for students to talk to face to face.
It was a wonderful morning with a great buzz – our next one is in the autumn term and we hope to repeat the success of this joint venture between us and the college!
