Tech Town session offers more start-up advice

croydon tech city northThe next meeting of the Croydon Tech “City” movement is a week on Thursday, March 21.

The event will feature a tech panel of local technical startup experts – including Simon Bird, the founder of software company dotDigital, who will be doing a question and answer session to give advice, help and suggestions about how non-techies could go about starting to create an app, website or computer program.

There will also be a talk by Andrew Brackin, an 18-year-old from just outside Croydon, in Warlingham, who has already sold two dotcom businesses and is now building his third tech company, plus a product demo from David Lee, who has built Smart Dresser, a virtual changing room app that offers access to hundreds of outfits from online fashion retailers.

The meeting begins at 7pm at Matthew’s Yard, the coffee shop off Surrey Street.

  1. Help yourself, why don’t you? To the graphics from Croydon Conservatives’ web site, where you’ll find the original of the map you have used for this article, which I produced about a decade ago.

    • Thanks for your interest, Tim. Never again will Croydon Tories be able to claim, truthfully, that they don’t read Inside Croydon.

      On the matter of the illustration, that was provided to us for publicity purposes by the Tech Town people, so you’d need to raise the matter with them, although trying to claim copyright over the ward boundaries of Croydon seems a tad pathetic, even by the standards of Croydon Conservatives.

      In the meantime, as deputy leader of said Croydon Conservatives, shouldn’t you be much busier dealing with councillors in your group who appear to abuse their public position to enhance their personal careers?
