Digital Lincoln is a community of people interested in technology and the digital world.
We're a friendly bunch, open to all ages and technical abilities. We aim to build the tech community here in Lincoln, sharing ideas and knowledge through a schedule of informal events and socials.
We have 500+ members and host regular events in and around Lincoln which alternate between both technical and non-technical topics, that way there is something for everybody. Many of these events take place at the Boole Technology Centre in Lincoln with the kind support of our sponsor, the Lincoln Science and Innovation Park.
We are very pleased to announce that the Business Lincolnshire Growth Hub is now supporting Digital Lincoln. This provision of support is just the latest step in Lincolnshire County Council and the Greater Lincolnshire LEP recognising the growing contribution that digital businesses make to the region’s economy.

“Digital as a dimension of everything”. Those were the words used to headline a ‘digital transformation’ strategy introduced to the Tate in 2013. This was quite far-seeing at the time, given that digital transformation has only just really come into general public consciousness in the last year or two. Beyond doubt the digital transformation bandwagon is overly hyped – well you know it is when you start to see ‘one size fits all’ training courses being advertised. But there is substance behind the gloss, and the key word is ‘strategy’.
