I’m really pleased to find out that there is now a Digital Community in Hull:

I’ve persuaded my boss to pay for a ticket, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m pleased to find that they do student pricing for the event (which seems to me quite reasonable) and with a bit of luck we can involve some of our students in their events in the future.
One of the most important things about computing is that the field is constantly changing and professional development is something you really need to work at if you want to keep your skills up to date. Hull Digital looks like it will be a neat way of doing this.
