OxonDigital started as a small meeting of digital service professionals in Oxford on July 20th this year. With around 15 attendees at the first meeting, the group was very friendly and it was easy to strike up conversations with like-minded people.
After a round of feedback, organiser Daniel Bianchini created a format based on the input of the early members.
Two months later word had gotten out: Turnout at the second meet-up quadrupled! The September event featured two speakers and a larger venue in Oxford. The sponsors of the event, SEOptimise and Zest Digital, funded the room and the first drink for each of the participants.
The talks by Daniel Bianchini and Alex Minchin were quite insightful and the presentations gave a highly practical overview on the basics of Search Engine Optimisation. Both speakers shared their slides:
I met a host of lovely professionals and had a great time chatting with like-minded people! It’s well worth the 75-minute commute from Swindon and a fantastic place to meet the community. With a lot of positive feedback after the first two events, this meeting for digital service professionals fills a gap in the local community. So many thanks to Dan and the sponsors for making the event possible!
The OxonDigital group will hold its meet-ups every two months at Copa Bar. There is no membership or attendance fee, but you should register via Eventbrite to reserve your free ticket, name tag and drink for November 23rd. ;)
See you at the next OxonDigital‽
