Upstairs at the Jericho Tavern
Oxford Geek Nights offer a chance for web developers and designers in the local area to get together, share their skills and talk about new ideas, techniques and technologies.
Each OGN consists of two keynote talks of 15 minutes each. There are also frenetic bursts of socialising, sometimes adverts for other local groups, but always interspersed with two sets of 5-minute-long microslot sessions.
OGN14 starting earlier!
Following feedback, the OGN14 keynotes will begin at eight o’clock, a full half hour earlier. The rest of the lineup will similarly start and finish that little bit earlier. This should be more convenint for those having to head to homes outside the ring road.
Our confirmed keynotes are:
- Take a Walk on the Happy Path, by Michael Mahemoff, pattern and strategy wrangler at BT Osmosoft
- ErnestMarples.com: what YOU need to do to free the postcode, by Richard Pope, co-founder of the Ernest Marples postcode project
These are five-minute "lightning" talks that anyone can volunteer for. They’re easy to do: pick something that excites you, or a project you’ve worked on that you think might be of interest; then talk to a friendly audience for just five minutes with a handful of slides. Submit your microslot and we’ll see you on the night!
Currently confirmed microslots:
- Happy To Help: a social search utility, by Peter Ferne
- Estate Agency Two Point Zero, by Kris Northfield
- myvcorp, by Anastasios Smeros
- Rapid Application Prototyping with Sketchflow, by Viral Tarpara
