Fact Liverpool has a workshop next week looking at the Future of Gaming which hopes to answer the questions of "Where is the gaming industry headed and what are the possibilities for games to be applied and utilised in ways unimagined?"
Open Playground - the name of the session sets the scene for the future of new media and gaming, starting with the next 3-5 years. Inspired by three sets of provocations delivered by leading figures in the Gaming and New Media sectors, participants will be inspired to take an imaginative journey to a near future, desired futures, future visions, new forms of technologies, as well as the status quo, including the barriers participants face in achieving expectations and implementing envisaged technologies.
Taking place monthly at Leaf Cafe Jelly Liverpool, this Thursday 6th March will see developers and creatives of all types atending as it becomes the focus point for lots of relaxed netwworking, conversations and plain old head down getting on with work.
If you are a contract developer then this is the perfect event for you, as over 50% of the people that attend are developers of one sort or another, be that web apps, phone apps or plain old website developers - they all attend.
Jelly Liverpool enables delegates to escape their normal working environment, be that the spare room, rented desk space or usual café and join in what has become the co-working event that enables people to make new contacts in an informal way whilst still allowing them to work on their deadlines and maintain productivity.
So get booking even if you do miss out on the free coffee it is a great place to hang out for the day.
Liverpool's Digital sector news
For awhile there we were the only ones publishing Digital sector news and we saw it as our duty to help the sector to develop, so it sat quite nicely beside our other activities such as How Why DIY, Social Media Cafe and Ignite Liverpool. Each in the own way helping the digital sector or digital community to come together, meet, mix and lead to some useful collaborations.
If you have any relevant sector news then let us know and we can publish it for you - it automatically gets inculded in our newsletter.
We've worked for over twenty years in the sector development both within the creative and digital sectors and have created a wide variety of networks and events to help sectors.
One of the reasons for posting Digital sector news
The North West Coast Academic Health Science Network is running a full day event on Friday 28th March, which will showcase the use of digital technologies in healthcare and also look ahead for ways to improve future digital health solutions.
There event will connect clinicians and commissioners with digital experts so if you are either then this event is essential for you.
Occassionally relevant news for the Liverpool digital sector is hard to come by and at other times it's published in a friendly newsletter, when this happens I like to republish it in some open source kind of way. Information is power - according to Gordon Gecko so here is some power.
