Description

It's Christmaaaaaas!!

Christmas gets earlier every year…… so we’re having our xmas party in November.

And just like the best Christmas parties we’ll have fun, food and drink, and presents ….. IF you are good girls and boys.

Who should attend?

Anyone – despite our name, coding is a small bit of what we do. We’d be delighted to see you if

  • You are a service user, or service provider, who has a problem with service delivery, or sees an opportunity to do things better!
  • You have an interesting in service design,
  • You are someone who wants to do more with data but isn’t sure where to start
  • You are a student (of any discipline),
  • You are someone who wants to improve their local area, or use digital and skills to improve local services,
  • You are from the third sector or local government,
  • You are curious about learning new techniques and skills to use in your day job, and finally
  • And, of course, if you are a developer, designer, UX expert, data wrangler, coders, or service designer.

So it's a Christmas hack?

Yes. The theme of the weekend will be Christmas but within that we’ll have activities around data, hardware, applications, service design.

Prizes (aka presents) will be awarded at the end (possibly from a fat, hairy man in a red suit.)

Timings

The event will run Saturday 9.00am to about 8pm, then Sunday 9-ish to about 4.30pm. So, we encourage a good night's sleep bewteen the days!

How can I get a present?

To get one you will have to impress santa. You can choose to either

  • Make him laugh
  • Make him cry, or
  • Take his breath away in some other way

Extra points will be awarded to the most sparkly, snowy, schmaltzy, funny, generous, ridiculous projects delivered over the weekend.

But, a ticket will cost £5 (*)

What do you mean, it's not free? CTC is always free!

We're breaking with tradition (established over the last 10 events) and charging a small amount for this one. The reason isn't that we are capitalist pigs, nor that we need to fund our beer / Pepsi / Haribo habit. Simply, it is just our attempt to counteract what happened in the two most recent CTC events where we had higher than normal numbers of people booking free tickets and not showing up. That means we over-cater, and despite our best efforts we had left-over food, which is a bad thing and wastes money too.

So, by attaching a monetary value to your ticket (* backed up by our promise that you’ll get your nice crisp fiver back WHEN (if) you show up), we hope that you won’t be put off booking.

We hope to see you in your festive finery soon.

Ian, Steve, Andrew and Bruce.
