Web Development Conference 2008 sponsorship

I'm very pleased to announce that we are sponsoring, and will hopefully be attending, the Web Development Conference being held at the Watershed in Bristol next week:

The Web Developers Conference is an event designed for students of the Web Design degree course at the University of West England.

The BSc (Hons) in Web Design is a course intended to give students all the skills they need to build applications on the web. It has everything from building databases to designing user interfaces, from back end programming to carrying out usability testing. The teaching team intend for students leaving the course to be able to join in the Web 2.0 world as anything they want, from designer through to developer.

The conference is the chance for new and current students to meet people from the Industry. Stories are told, tricks shared and maybe even the chance for students to get those all important industry placements.

We agreed to the sponsorship a while back but it kind of got forgotten about (my fault, not their's) so there's been a bit of a frantic last minute exchange of cheques and so on.  We are sponsoring primarily because it looks like an interesting event run by a local university but obviously, if any students happen to read this and are interested in working for a local educational charity, particularly in the area of Web development, we'd be more than happy to talk to you.

Note that the conference is sold out, so if you haven't got a place, you've missed your chance. Sorry about that!
