The Commons Launch: Let's go to the pub.

In the last year, we've grown our events schedule to the point where we have more in house tech events than anywhere else in Edinburgh. We've got regular meetups of EdinburghJSDocker EdinburghAdWordsPreWiredStartup Grind and are looking forward to hosting our first Edinburgh UX meetup soon. We also host two coffee mornings, CodeBase Open Coffee Morning and Creative Circles, for those who prefer caffeine with their chatting.

Turing Festival Day 2: Billion Dollar Scale-Ups

Early bird tickets are now available for day 2 of this year's Turing Festival: Billion Dollar Scale-Ups!

Edinburgh's tech startup scene has seen massive growth in the last two years, not least of all the two Quartermile-based unicorns, FanDuel and Skyscanner, and CodeBase, now the UK's largest tech incubator. The city has become an amazing place to build companies, and this day will delve into the process of scaling to become real global players.

Turing Festival day one

Turing Festival day one

In 2012, we launched the Edinburgh Festival’s one stop shop for technology and innovation, the Turing Festival. In the first years we saw speakers such as Steve Wozniak (Apple), Susan Poulton (National Geographic Explorers) and DJ Powers (Valve) grace our stage, inspiring an audience from all around the world.

This year we're back, and going to be bigger than ever.
