Our regular “heartbeat” event happens on the first Thursday of the month and features two speakers on topics from across the technical spectrum.More >>
Our newest initiative, Bristol BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) offers practical hands-on technical workshops delivered by proven experts.More >>
A MODERN APPROACH TO LEARNING
We believe that learning should be continuous, in-context, short, accessible and reflexive.
We have put some thought into our pedagogical approach and have captured our ethos to learning in a short manifesto that sums up our approach.
Talk to us about partnering!
We are always on the look-out for opportunities to partner with tech companies in the South West.
THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: TALK AT AN EVENT
We are always on the lookout for an “authentic voice” to stimulate, inspire and entertain our highly-technical audience. If you would like to put forward a speaker for conference, please see the CFP (Call for Speakers). Forthe meetup, please contact Chris or Nic.
NETWORKING: COME ALONG TO AN EVENT
With events each and every month, there is always an opportunity to experience Bristech first-hand.
Our current crop of workshops are likely to be of relevance to your tech teams. If you don’t see something that is of relevance, do talk to us about your specific tech team training requirements!
SPONSOR AN EVENT
The sponsorship prospectus for the conference is launched in May each year. We also have sponsorship opportunities for the meetup and workshop events.
Two 30 minute talks, with 15 mins for Q+A followed by pizza…with beer on tap throughout!
We record every talk and put them on our YouTube channel
We generally book 3 months in advance, so if you would like to speak at a forthcoming event, please get in touch!
We hold all of our meetups at the Engine Shed, Temple Meads. Simples!
We host 18 speakers on technical topics from across the technical spectrum. As such, we are “tech agnostic” (but highly technical!). The themes are emergent each year depending on our curated speakers.
The AV is top-notch, as you would expect from a working cinema. Expect crisp, beautiful presentations delivered on state-of-the-art AV equipment.
Our venue is the Watered, Harbourside. For a single day we take over the cafe area, cinemas and three other rooms for a day of talks.
A SENSE OF FUN
Conferences can tend to be quite staid affairs and so we like to mix it up a bit. This translates into various things, such as ice cream, popcorn and we try not to take ourselves too seriously!
Praise & Critique
We are open to both praise and (constructive) critique for our events since both help us to improve what we do. Here is a selection of (kinder) words from people:
Bristech 2018 provided
a well-organised and
vibrant platform for a mix
of technical, social, ethical,
(and even quantum!) talks …
It was a great opportunity
for networking, learning and
inspiration for attendees and proved to be one of the stand-
out conferences last year.”
Development Capability Lead, BJSS
Bristech is a fantastic
embodiment of the
enthusiasm and diversity
of the local tech scene.
Bristech fosters an inspiring community of storytellers.
For a city that doesn’t always take itself too seriously,
Bristech has curated a fantastic space. It has brought
together passionate, friendly, and curious individuals and
organisations, doing good and solving some world-leading
