We are thrilled to announce that the first five Festival Day talks have been confirmed and these will include fascinating insights into computing history, with science writer Georgina Ferry presenting the story of LEO: the world’s first business computer. We will also hear from technology lawyer and CEO of Trustable, Amanda Brock, who will talk about how our perceptions of and interactions with software have profoundly changed — and the need to manage risk and for trustable software.
We’ll be treated to talks from Ben Cartwright and Jo Hinchliffe, on nanosatellites and how you can build your own satellite ground station! And Michael Dales will explain how anyone can build their own guitar, using some pretty neat non-traditional techniques, via their local community workshop.
A small number of Early Bird tickets have gone on sale and if you do happen to miss out on these, the remaining tickets will be on sale once the schedule is finalised around a month from now.
Finally, thanks to the generous support of Boldport, all Festival Day delegates will receive a beautiful Tiny 'engineer superhero' emergency kit upon arrival.
