The Dev Picnic: Ada Lovelace Day

Location: AND Digital, First Floor, 18 Henrietta Street, London, WC2E 8QH
Cost: Free

The Dev Picnic is a technical meet-up for the developer community, giving a platform to some of the most brilliant and inspiring tech talent to show off their skills, knowledge, and projects.

Each event will have a number of short talks from our speakers, a game or quiz during the break, and drinks and picnic food on us - since we think we've already had enough beer and pizza to last us a lifetime!

The organisers of The Dev Picnic attend many inclusive tech meet-ups; but we often see people from minority groups in the tech industry being invited to speak about their experience as a minority, rather than their experience with tech. The Dev Picnic is a meet-up group for a technical audience to come and learn from speakers from minority groups about a whole host of dev-related topics!

Our inaugural event will take place in AND Digital’s Covent Garden HQ on the 10th October, which is Ada Lovelace Day.

We hope you’ll join us for what looks to be a great line up!
