nic-hemley-bristech-2015With speakers across a wide variety of topic areas, there’s something for everyone at Bristech this year including the webs fast movement towards HTTPS, the Nim programming language, application security, UX and the Internet of Things to name just a few.

  • For the simply Tech Curious – a miscellany of talks from across the tech landscape, including Data, DevOps and UX.
