WorthingDigital Talks: Digital for Social Good

Digital technologies are transformative but not always for the better. In our May event we explore two projects that show how communities can make use of technology to affect positive social change in the world.

Our speakers for the evening are:

– Cassie Evans of codebar Brighton
– Kingsley Davis of Good Tech Conference

1) Kingsley Davis will be speaking about the Good Tech Conference – a not-for-profit two day event in Brighton about the ethical use of technology. Attendees to the second day of the conference will work with experienced mentors to create an application for a social enterprise.

2) Cassie Evans is a creative developer and a core organiser of codebar Brighton – a non-profit initiative that facilitates the growth of a diverse tech community by running regular programming workshops. Cassie will be speaking about how codebar came about and how it helps enable underrepresented people to learn programming in a safe and collaborative environment.

Worthing Digital Talks: February 2018

Tuesday 20th February 7pm – 9pm
Colonnade House, 47 Warwick Street, Worthing, BN11 3DH

Tickets are free and available from Meetup

Colonnade House hosts Worthing Digital for another evening of talks exploring digital culture. In this session we’ll be finding out how the UK government manages software projects and looking at the vast array of cloud services offered by AWS. Organisers Mark Ford and John Dalziel will also be talking about how Worthing Digital came about and where it’s going this year.

Mark Ford: Users first. Do digital like the government.

You may think that your site has a big audience, but no one has to serve more people in the UK than the government. Every department within government is working hard to improve their online services by putting the needs of the user at the heart of delivery. How are they doing this, and what can you learn from their approach to improve the way you deliver your own services?

John Dalziel: All the things. An introduction to Amazon Web Services.

Amazon Web Services is the modern web developers toolbox. Inside you’ll find a huge range of services from storage and computing through to exotic tools for Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and IOT. Join John Dalziel for a whistlestop tour and find out how you can use make use of cloud services in your own online projects.
