Episode 11 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast is now ready for your listening pleasure. In part one, I’m joined by Tom Hoyland and Katie Attwood, co-organisers of Agile Sheffield, one of the city’s excellent regular meetups.

If you’ve ever thought about starting your own event, this is essential listening. Tom and Katie talk through how Agile Sheffield got started and offer plenty of sensible advice on running a meetup, from finding sponsorship to providing a safe space for everyone to attend.

In the second half of the show, I’m joined by Chris and Mel, who couldn’t make it to the interview. We met in the lovely (but a little noisy) Roco cafe to go over some of the latest goings on in Sheffield’s Digital sector.

That includes an update on Sheffield’s Channel 4 bid, an ‘Internet of Food’ opportunity with the Urban Institute and new workspace available at Sheffield Technology Parks. Plus much more!
