Cambridge Geek Nights

CGN17

25 June 2012

CGN17 on Lanyrd

CGN17 is now confirmed for Monday 25th June in our usual venue, the Cambridge Union. Arrive from 7pm for drinks, kindly sponsored by ecm, with talks starting at 7:30.

Our first confirmed speaker is Lucy Chambers from the Open Knowledge Foundation. She will be speaking about the Data Journalism Handbook - what it is, and the experience of crowdsourcing the material.

Our second speaker will be Greg Law from Undo Software. He will be speaking about his experiences of setting up a software company, and describes his talk as follows: "The orthodox way of building a technology company is to raise a bucket-load of cash, start spending it, and hope you can get to break-even before the money runs out. Instead, we "boot-strapped" the company (without any real savings), and didn't take on external funding until almost seven years later, when the business was already self-sustaining." Greg will talk about his experiences and analyse the pros and cons of building a UK technology business this way.
