What is GeekUp?
GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other tech-minded folk from the UK. It's a grassroots knowledge sharing and networking social for folks involved or interested in the web, design and technology industry. Monthly events take place in Chester, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Preston and Sheffield too.
GeekUp East Coast borrows heavily from the original GeekUp concept, but is proving a great way to meet Creative people from the Eastern side of the country too. Originally created so that the Creative Types, Designers, Developers and Generally Tech-y folks on the East side of the country had somewhere to get together without braving the Pennines, we're a friendly lot and welcome new faces (don't worry, you don't have to know 3 programming languages & have published books or iPhone apps - although some of us have!)
Who can attend GeekUp?
While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody involved in the media / technology / design / graphics industries is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The events are free, we just ask that you buy your own beer.
Do I HAVE to be a Geek?
Not at all - although some of us wear the 'Geek' badge quite well, please dont think you have to be to attend - if you have an interest in computing & the web, that's a good place to start... and you'd be amazed at the kind of info / help & hints you'll pick up too - see you there!
