Shropgeek invites you to an evening of talks from some of the web industries leading talent

Hot on the heels of the huge success of (R)Evolution, the national web conference held at The Shropshire Conference Centre in September, Shropgeek is extremely proud to present Rebellion - The (almost) christmas party.

Held quarterly, Rebellion is an evening of talks from people working within the web / digital / creative industries. To celebrate it being (almost) Christmas, Shropgeek has invited some of the digital industries most creative and forward thinking individuals to the county. The evening is set to be the biggest Rebellion event to date.

Held at The Alb, in Shrewsbury, on November 21st 2013, Rebellion promises to be a fantastic opportunity to network with others working within the digital / creative industries in Shropshire and further afield and also hear three inspiring talks from people who are the very best within their specialist fields.

The talks on the night will cover a wide range of topics including: “How to stand out in a crowded market place”, “How to improve the speed of your website” and “Top tips on how to improve website typography”. The awesome speakers providing these talks are Steve Leighton, who runs Has Bean Coffee ( http://www.hasbean.co.uk/ ) an extremely successful on and off line business selling specialty coffees. Harry Roberts ( http://csswizardry.com/ ), a very talented front end web developer whose previous experience includes working for BSkyB and Ben Everard (http://beneverard.co.uk/ ), an extremeley talented back end developer, renowned for improving usability and improving the speed of websites.

Kirsty Burgoine, one of the organisers of Shropgeek said:

“We’ve invited some of the people I admire most from within the digital industry to come along and share ideas and experiences with us. I am extremely excited to have them come to Shrewsbury because I have admired their work for a long time.

The speakers and range of topics were specifically chosen to interest anyone within the digital industry no matter their skillset. From web developer / design to internet marketer / content strategist, there is something to interest everyone and not everyone needs to know how to code to take something away from the evening.

There will be an opportunity to network with others working in similar industries, learn and be inspired by the speakers, enjoy the odd drink, socialise and get into the Christmas spirit a little bit early. What more could you want from an event! ~ grin!”

Shropshire has a huge digital / creative industry and very few events in the county that directly cater to them. By combining an evening of talks from some of the most innovative thinkers and doers with an (almost) christmas party and also sponsored by some of the industries true heavy weights, including Github, Campaign Monitor, and Shropshire’s own Zengenti, Shropgeek hopes to create a truly fantastic event! 

Tickets are only £10 per person (any money left over after costs are covered will be donated to a bar tab for attendees) and with less than a week to go, they are extremely limited so book now to make sure you don’t miss out.
