Thinking of heading to a business event in Leeds this autumn?

So are we!

At Art of Cloud, we love finding ourselves at interesting tech and business, (and creative!) events.

There are a lot of reasons why Leeds is a great place to be if you’re working in the tech sector or building your own start-up, (take a read of our blog about Leeds and tech!), or going freelance – and the number of different events is one of them! 

We are lucky to be situated in the heart of Leeds, where events are always happening – with a diverse variety of creative, tech, entrepreneurial, and more.

We kicked off the summer with some great events – the month long Leeds Digital Festival being a highlight! Leeds Digi Fest had events focused on Augmented Reality for e-commerce, Intellectual Property, AI in healthcare, Diversity, and Learning Code. 

Our team’s favourite event was the teaming up of She Does Digital and Hey! 

Alas, summer is over and so is the festival!

So, it made sense to share just a few Leeds business networking and tech events that have piqued our interest this Autumn.

Monthly coding workshops

When: September 19th, 2019

6:45 – 9:00pm

“A learner-led meet-up for adults learning how to code. You tell us what you need support with, and we will do our best to help. With professional developers on hand, don’t struggle alone. “

Why we think it’s worth going:

Of course, we may be a little biased, being a tech business -but we believe that learning how to code is only going to become more valuable in this growing digital landscape.

Takes place every 3rd Thursday of the month.

Why Yorkshire Mafia?
