The Digital Pond is our web design and development event that’s incredibly popular in London, with 2,500 members and counting. Gareth spoke at our very first event on Node.JS, which was changing the way real-time web apps were built and developed at the time.
Gareth is a big supporter of PHP and Laravel – he drove our agency to sponsor Laracon EU and become the UK’s only Laravel Partner, benefitting from direct contact with Taylor Otwell, the creator of Laravel.
Gareth hosted a free workshop where you can come and learn how to build a user-friendly conversational user interface (CUI) for your website. Powered by Microsoft Azure’s Bot & Cognitive Services, we have recently built a proof of concept chatbot.
Gareth conceived and manages our annual Quack Hack – a weekend where the Ducks dream and develop proof of concepts in less than 36 hours. Last year, our winning team built AR augmented instructions for medication.
