We understand how hard it can be to find the time to search the myriad of options out there, especially as many of the events listings in the web aren’t UK centric or only cover the larger events, which is why we’ve done some of the heavy lifting for you with our searchable 2018 Tech Events UK guide

Why should you go to a Meetup?

Meetups

It all seems to be happening at Meetups these days and the relaxed informal format of drinks, pizza, chat and informative presentations seems to be a winner for most software developers, digital marketers, well, whatever you're into there's probably a Meetup somewhere.

They're a great place for getting to know your peers and there seems to be little social awkwardness which isn't always the case at bigger events.  Most people don't mind being approached and talking about work or anything else that you might like to touch on.  They don't cost much, if anything, and you get to hear from the people on the ground - doing what you do - rather than influential speakers who might not have got their hands dirty for a little while

Why should you go to conferences, summits or seminars?

Conferences

There are a number of big conferences throughout the year and some of them are even free to attend.  If you're looking to find out more about suppliers in your market then this is the place to go.  If you want a bag full of freebies and enough pens and cups for the rest of the year this is also the place to go.  The most important reason however to attend conferences is probably the great seminars which are usually on offer from industry thought leaders.  You can pick up on up and coming trends before your competitors and real insight on what is happening right now and about to happen in the near future.  You might also get the chance to attend workshops where you can discuss typical industry issues with your peers.  Conferences are also a great chance to chat with the industry leading speakers and get to know them.  Most of them are happy to answer questions during sessions and afterwards and are generally flattered by the attention.

Why should you go to workshops?

Seminars

Smaller workshops and seminars are where you can often learn new skills, upgrade what you currently know and sometimes even put new skills into practice.  Why not take the chance to play around with code where you can't break anything important, don't have to battle with your company's staging sites or restrictive change controls.  You'll also get the chance to ask the questions that you might not be able to in your own company.

Why should you go to a Hackathon?

Hackathon

You get to spend quality time working with a team of peers solving the real life issues of often big name tech companies.  You'll work with people who are as excited about this as you are, get the chance to win cool prizes, notoriety in your field and add a new t-shirt to your collection.  Hackathons can be great if you're not too experienced and want to add to your work portfolio.  If you're super experienced they might be a great place to showcase your work to big sponsors - almost like a hands on interview.  The best thing about Hackathons however has to be the sense of accomplishment by the end of the day - you've come in fresh to a problem, worked it through and solved it - what can be more gratifiying than that?  They're hard work but truly exciting and whatever level you're at you're certain to learn something new and have fun whilst you're doing it

Why should you go to a Tech Camp?

Are you kidding? It's a holiday! You get to hang out with people you've got loads in common with (hopefully), have a laugh, possibly get up to mayhem and make great friends with your peers.  It could be the start of new lifelong friendships, a great chance to immerse yourself further in your field or just have fun with some likeminded people

Camping

Start planning your 2018 events schedule now

Whether you want to learn new skills, network with your peers, find out about new trends from leading influencers, or focus more deeply on your field of work, then you should definitely get out and about more.  Many software developers are happy working in their own company silos but you don't know what you don't know unless you get out in the wider world.  If you want to play a bigger part in your company's success it is vital that you learn what is happening in your market and implement any useful tips when you return.  Getting out and networking can be a great way of getting yourself known for what you do and it might just open up a new door to the job you've been waiting for.
