Our events are not-business networking – they’re a friendly, informal gathering for anyone with any kind of digital interest. Designers, developers, database admins, business owners, marketers, journalists, bloggers, sysadmins, security specialists, conversation rate optimisers, and more are all welcome and have attended DPiP recently.

You don’t have to be based in Peterborough – anyone is welcome. If you’re stuck for transport, let us know and we’ll probably be able to help with lifts within reason.

  • Google Plus training
  • Content management systems – which to use?
  • Creative Culture? P’boro
  • Web development… working with. What to look for in terms of ‘good web development’
  • Is it worth paying facebook to help promote my business page?

  • What is UX and why it’s different (TFL case study) Jay

We’re not sure how to handle this conflict though.

Useful links from DPiP April 10th, 2014

We had a great meetup at the Eco Innovation Centre in Peterborough on Thursday, April 10th, 2014 – many, many thanks to everyone who came along. Thanks to those who gave impromptu presentations at short notice, those who provided interesting questions for all of us to discuss, and those who came along and supported the event.

A number of useful links came up during the night, and at the time we hadn’t organised a good way to share them:

Security:

  • Testing for Heartbleed vulnerability: http://filippo.io/Heartbleed/

 

Coding in Schools:

  • Code Club: https://www.codeclub.org.uk/
  • Computing at School: http://www.computingatschool.org.uk/
  • Young Rewired State: https://youngrewiredstate.org/

Peterborough Innovation:

If there’s anything we’ve missed give us a shout – and we’ll have news about our next event coming soon.

April 10th meetup – change of plans

We hope you’re looking forward to meeting up at the Eco Innovation Centre tomorrow (Thursday) from 7pm. We’d hoped to have a presentation regarding the planned Peterborough Digital Hub, but it turns out the council decided to schedule a meeting on the same topic for 5pm, so it seemed sensible to wait until we know the outcome of that before sharing details.

So instead we’ll be opening things up to conversation and impromptu talks/presentations. If you have any topics, projects or challenges you’d like to share or discuss, then let us know now or on the night. We’ll have use of a projector so you can share presentation slides, websites or anything else relevant. It’s a great chance to get feedback, or ask advice from collection of experts that attend DPiP. Design, development, eCommerce, SEO, Social Media – theres are great people with experience in all of those areas on hand…

DPiP Reboot

To casual observers it would appear that the Digital People in Peterborough group has given up, with seemingly no activity for several months on the website or on social media.  However in reality, we simply stalled with work and family commitments took priority.

But now we’re back!
