“The MadLab has spent over a year building up the country’s largest network
of like minded technologists, engineers, developers, creatives, artists and
alpha geeks” said Hwa Young, from MadLab. “We’ve already helped create new
employment in the city through our regular evening programmes and we’re
building on this to create training based not on academic models but
practical and commercial lead experiences and insight.” The line-up of
programme leaders includes published O’Reilly authors, maintainers of core
Arduino libraries, award-winning international VJs, co-founders of
WordPress, and HTML5 thought-leaders. “Its a wide-ranging mix” said Dave
“but we know nowhere else where you can spend a few days learning from
people at the top of their field for the same price as a day trip.”
