Digital People in Peterborough
Hello, and welcome to the new home of Digital People in Peterborough – also known as #DPiP on Twitter and other places where a stupidly long name is a pain.
So…what is ‘Digital People in Peterborough’?
It’s a still fairly informal effort to help introduce people working in digital to each other, concentrating on Peterborough, UK, and the surrounding areas of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire etc. Everyone is welcome, and the Peterborough bit is simply to indicate that’s where the pub/venue will be.
It’s open to anyone working in digital, whether you’re employed by a large company, freelancing, or founding your own start-up. And all disciplines are welcomed and encouraged, whether you work in development, design, creating content, marketing, databases, security, systems administration or something else we haven’t thought of yet.

After such a great response to the idea of DPiP, meeting lots of great people, having some inspiring conversations and thinking up some great plans, somehow everything slipped towards the end of 2011. But we’re back for 2012. And although … Continue reading
If you’ve been to a DPiP event, you’ll probably have met one or more of the Jigowatt team, who in addition to creating eCommerce sites for clients also created the Jigoshop WordPress eCommerce plugin. Well, Andy, Sandra, and the team … Continue reading
