Birmingham is one of the top Meetup hubs in the UK – connections based on Software development and Data science means that there is a lively informal tech scene in the region.

Birmingham Tech Week is a collaborative series of events taking place across the City (and wider Greater Birmingham Region) between October 7th– 13th2019.
