Talk Tech on Third Thursday – May 2017

This Thursday we’re returning to Bar George for a spot of lunch, and the topic around the table, as always, will be Tech! Yup, it’s been a while since we got together and a lot of things have happened this month. From new phones all the way to cybersecurity attacks, we have lots to talk about and lots to share.

For those who have never joined us, we’re a group of technology enthusiasts who meet every Third Thursday to share what we’ve learnt, discuss what we’ve read and debate the latest technology developments. Some of us are into machine learning, some into Linux, and some just looking to learn something new. Some of us are IT professionals, some hobbyists, but we all share a passion for all things tech.

So come and join us if you think you can contribute, if you have something to share or if you simply want a chat. Come and grab a bite to eat, or just grab a coffee. We’re at Bar George, on Thursday 18th May between 12:30 and 14:00

Talk Tech on Third Thursday – April 2017

It’s time for another Third Thursday and this month we’re doing something different. Since our last Talk Tech meet, Code Club has moved to a new Makerspace in Douglas and we’d like to take the opportunity to show you what we’re up to. Yes, you heard that right, we’re holding this next Talk Tech session at the new Douglas Makerspace at 3, Prospect Hill, Douglas.

We’ve got some fun things to show and play with, ranging from some InfoSec equipment, all the way to Arduino and Zumo robots and some really exciting computer vision so we’re hoping you can join us between 12:30 and 14:00 on Thursday 20th April.

We’re planning on getting some noodles from Java Express, which is just below the Makerspace, so join us for some yummy noodles, or bring your own, whatever works for you.

See you Thursday!

Talk Tech on Third Thursday – March 2017

Wow, Third Thursday does come around quickly sometimes, quicker on some months than others! Well, it’s arrived again and time for our Talk Tech on Third Thursday Lunch. We’re currently meeting at Bar George at 12:30, so I’ve gone ahead and booked a table for us.

So, what is this Talk Tech lunch? Well, we’re a group of friends who meet once a month to do just that, talk about the latest tech, discuss what’s going on and share news and exploits that we’ve come across since the last time we had lunch. We’ve had chats on mobile phones, virtual reality, cryptocurrency and whatever happens to be the flavour of the month.

Code Club is planning to do an Arduino April next month, so if you have any stories, projects or kit you want to talk about, bring them along to Third Thursday and show us what you’ve got.

So, if Tech is your thing and you’re doing nothing this Thursday, come join us for lunch! See you Thursday 16th March at 12:30!

Talk Tech on Third Thursday – January 2017

Welcome to the 2017! This is the first Third Thursday of the year, and time to get together with your techy friends to talk about the latest developments in technology, what’s new on the scene and what new gadgets and tech you’ve been playing with since our last meet.

We’ve been meeting for a while now and every month we always find a different strand of technology to focus on. We’ve done robotics, streaming, cryptocurrency, microprocessor design, autonomous cars and every subject you can think of. Conversations vary depending on who turns up, but you can bet your bottom dollar it’s going to be something in the technology sphere. I’m half tempted to bring an Amazon Echo with me this month. Anyone want to have a play with one?

It’s an open lunch event, anyone can join us, so if you know anyone who would be interested, feel free to bring them along. If you’re not hungry, just grab a coffee and join in anyway. We’re booked in at Bar George at 12:30 on Thursday 19th January. See you there!

Talk Tech Third Thursday – December 2016

As another year comes to a close, we have our last Third Thursday of the year coming up this week. As usual, I’ve booked a table for us at Bar George so we can meet up, talk about the latest tech news and even enjoy some festive cheer.

If you’ve never joined us, Talk Tech on Third Thursday is an informal gathering of people who work in the tech sector, who are interested in technology or who simply want to learn a bit more about the technology that surrounds them. We’ve been meeting for some time now and always end up having a great chat about gadgets, social media, virtual reality, bitcoin or whatever people may be working on. It’s an open table, so anyone is free to join us and we always look forward to new experiences and knowledge to add to the group.

So if you’re not busy this Thursday (15th December) at 12:30, come join us at Bar George in Douglas.

This Thursday is the Third Thursday of the month and as we’ve been doing for a while now, we’re meeting up for a Techie lunch to share the latest news, talk about our new gadgets and share problems, solutions and whatever is new in the tech world. The topics of conversation tend to be varied, depending on who turns up, but we’ve talked about social media, cryptocurrencies, augmented reality and a host of other technologies. The main topic is always technology, though we tend to skid into adjacent topics from time to time.

It’s an open lunch date, anyone can join us. And we always have a varied group, from people specialising in tech, to others who run start ups to others who spend their time building systems and solutions. So if you want to meet some interesting folk, please come and join us. Bring your gadgets, bring your problems, but above all, bring your stories and exploits.

We’re meeting at Bar George in Douglas between 12:30 and 14:00 this Thursday 20th October. And if you don’t have time for lunch, just come and grab a quick cup of coffee. Hope you can join us!
