Bristech meetup events are held on the first Thursday of every month (bar August). We provide pizza and drinks after the talks to give people the opportunity to discuss what they've seen and to network with other attendees. We invite two speakers to share their knowledge on topics from across the technical spectrum (with a bias towards software), including professional developers, company founders, academic researchers, hobbyists and creatives. A typical Bristech audience member may tend to be tech agnostic (and certainly ‘tech curious’) since we offer such a wide variety of topics and are not focused on any particular technology or software. We do not try and ‘theme’ our evenings per se, which allows for the interest of odd technical pairings and very often interesting connections/overlaps between the two topics. Variety is the spice of life for Bristech (as is the pizza). Past topics have included “Kube All The Things” (March 2016) and “Robot Swarms” (November 2014). Please note - Bristech events are squarely aimed at a technical audience and are not intended to be recruitment events. Professional recruitment agents are welcome in a personal capacity only. Since the events are tech talks and not recruitment events, please ask permission from the organisers before making any "We're Hiring!" declarations either at an event or in the public discussion forums. If your organisation might be interested in sponsoring the monthly events please talk to us - firstname.lastname@example.org Bristech has a Code of Conduct for all participants in our events, both speakers and audience members.
