Edinburgh in August is where the cream of European technical and digital talent will come together with the World’s largest Arts Festival to thrash out the issues at the heart of our cultural and economic future. The world is being remade in front of our eyes – this is your chance to take part in that struggle.
The Turing Festival brings together a wealth of knowledge, talent and ideas to capitalise on the opportunities posed by the internet and look at what the future holds for the creative, digital and cultural sectors.
This festival is for entrepreneurs, developers, managers, creative thinkers, geeks, technologists and evangelists to discuss, debate, learn and predict the future of the web. Running alongside the world renowned Edinburgh International Festival and Guardian Media Festival, the Turing Festival offers a weekend of interactive gatherings and conferences with industry leading professionals who will challenge your business ideas and leave you wanting more!
Organised by Interactive Scotland, Edinburgh City Council and Edinburgh Science Triangle, the Turing Festival has been developed to raise the international awareness of Scotland’s indigenous talent in developing and designing software, hardware, mobile, computing, gaming, music, ﬁlm, TV and internet services, content applications or platforms.
