Web & Tech Events in South Wales: January 2015

( Post 2 of 25 )

* Please note: This post is being kept for reference now that all of them have been and gone… *

For our first main post for CR 25, we wanted to list all of the Web/tech/IT events taking place in the South Wales area this month. Whether part of a regular/monthly meet-up or a major one-off event, you’ll find it here…

In fact, we’ve gone to the effort of adding them to a Google Calendar, which you can see below. If a number is black then that means there’s an event that day – hover over it or tap it to see what’s going on. We’ve now removed the calendar embed (from February).

Alternatively, here’s the full list – in date order.

* Important note! * Please check with the event organisers’ websites, social profiles, etc. that the events are still taking place and that the details haven’t changed before making plans to attend any of them. We cannot be held liable or responsible for any changes in any information – such as date changes, venue changes, cancellations, etc. – although we will try our best to update the info on this page and in the Google Calendar as-and-when we find out about such things.
