Launching OpenUK’s Meet-Up groups at a location near you (we hope) this autumn
London kicked off on October and will be monthly, Glasgow and the West Country by December. Details will be kept up to date on this page and on social media using #OUKmeetup
Join a local group to meet your peers from open source software, open hardware and open data.
- Talks from Open Technology leaders
- Try your hand at giving a talk with our ‘First Time Five’ – a chance for a first time speaker to receive coaching on their first 5 minute talk, with talk recorded and optional sharing on Youtube.
- Swag Swap – Bring along any new swag you don’t have a use for and swap it for something you want in our Swag Swap – sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
- Refreshments will be served.
- Free to attend.
‘First Time Five’ speaker slots will give you the opportunity to put your name and voice out there. OpenUK will offer you one to one support and mentoring as a first time speaker, in advance of your talk from a recognised industry speaker in the OpenUK team. We will record your talk, which can be shared should you wish, on youtube to support you with a video that you can use in later applications for conference talks. Step up and give speaking a try. We all have a talk in us and every good speaker began their speaking career thinking they had nothing to say…
