This is the second year running that I have been involved with Bath Digital Festival and The SPARKies (the West of England’s celebration of all things Tech in the region). Last year, 3000 people attended the various events and the tech sector and the city got some great regional and national coverage.
Since 2012 the momentum in the tech sector in Bath has been building nicely and 2013 sees another great programme of events; from the hack weekend at Real World (where designers and developers will be invited to hack the Gabble and/or The Filter APIs) to the Rails Girls gathering, not forgetting the X Media Lab Masterclasses and the “Education & Tech” Techie Brekkie.
The Festival runs from 14th-24th March 2013 and The SPARKies Awards ceremony is on the 21st. It’s going to be a good one.
