Upcoming Hack and Geek events

August 28th, 2009 by Alistair MacDonald Leave a reply »

Oddly I have been asked a few times what events are worth attending. I have also been asked to help pimp a few events recently as well, so this post will hopefully help everybody. If you are interested in learning, building, or socialising then have a look at the evens and consider coming along.


Sat 29th : Geek Steam BBQ


Sat 5th – Sun 6th : BarCampBrighton
Fri 4th – Sun 6th : Geeks in the Peaks

Fri 11th – 12th : EcoMo09
Sun 13th : Big Geek Day Out

Sat 19th – Sun 20th : Charity Hack Day

Fri 25th – Sat 26th : Over the Air
Sat 26th – Sun 27th : BathCamp


3rd – 4th : Hack North

Sat 17th : BarCampBlackpool

24th – 25th : BarCampLondon7

Sat 31st : VampDevCamp


Sat 7th – Sun 8th : BarCampManchester2

Sat 14th : BarCampBradford

The only filtering criteria I have used on this list is if it is an event that I would like to attend (if I had the time). In truth I will be attending quite a few of them, probably more than I should.

Update: BarCampLondon7 added.

i love Quidco GreenWhite

All software is homemade, all imagery is created live; things may go wrong in beautiful ways, and no performance is ever the same. He will be showing show some of his experiments in live drawing, such as JelloTail and his latest project, Cartoon Tentacles

    Come along meet other people interested in making stuff, or seeing what others make, and let me know if there is a project you are involved in that you’d like to talk about at a future Dorkbot Newcastle
