Episode 17 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast is ready for you and features an interview with Robin Wood, security consultant, researcher and co-founder of the ever-popular SteelCon.
Mel and Chris spoke to Robin about how SteelCon started, why it’s so successful, and online security in general. It’s a great insight into organising an event at that kind of scale and I think you’ll enjoy it.
As usual, the second half of the show is an update on various news and events from around the city. There seems to be a bit of a buzz in the air at the moment, what with everything that’s going on. We talked about the the British Games Institute coming to Sheffield, the first shfWIT event and plenty more besides.
