The Big Chips are the longest running digital awards in the UK. Winning a Big Chip can make all the difference to your business and with the first two entries completely free of charge, can you afford not to enter?

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.

TechHub Manchester is hosting a OpenData + Wearable devices hackathon on the 15-16th March. It is for Makers, designers, programmers, spreadsheet wizards

Numbers That Matter aims to explore what would happen if people could create smart devices that reported very specific data to the wearer - numbers that mattered to them the most. If we could invent a watch that told you that your neighbours were probably bored and looking for companionship, if we could invent a litmus badge that changed colour telling you how healthy the areas you frequent are, if we could invent a bandana that unfurled in sociable places, how would it affect us? Would they change our behaviour as individuals – but more interestingly, could they help us become more aware citizens?
