Katie and Amy are both established developers and members of Sheffield’s digital community. When they and the Front End Sheffield team launched the meetup last year, it quickly became one of the city’s most popular events. Earlier this year, they took over the reins of the also very popular Front End North conference, which takes place on 7th February 2020 at the marvellous Crucible Theatre. In this episode, you get to hear all about their journey as meetup organisers, as well as their plans for Front End North. Fancy getting involved? They are on the lookout now for volunteers, lightning talk speakers and, of course, people to buy tickets!
