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.
Lincolnshire has a growing digital business sector and community but an important piece has been missing... until now. Lincolnshire Co-op is redeveloping part of Thomas Parker House on Free School Lane into a custom designed shared working space dedicated to the digital sector.
Pete will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of IoT. This way you can forgo all the procrastinating, and get to (virtually) creating!
The goal of the WiT Takeover is to celebrate, promote and encourage women working in (or thinking about working in) the tech industry. This will be a special event for one evening only, so we are taking the opportunity to let the audience control with Lightning Talks!
Our tech community is full of bright and interesting people each with their unique experiences and points of view. Each and every person has something they can share that some of us would benefit from. You are one of these people. But how do you conquer that first step to submit a talk, and what’s in it for you?

Digital Lincoln has been invited to visit the high-tech CCTV control room to find out more about how the City Council keeps shoppers and businesses safe as well as the roll out of Wi-Fi connectivity to shoppers in the city centre.
LincolnHack is a FREE 24 hour coding competition where teams of up to four people compeate for fantastic prizes. Everyone starts with an idea and builds it in to something.
