YorkTechFest 2019 - Tech Community Conference

YorkTechFest 2019 is a Tech Conference to showcase the Tech Non-Profit communities in York.  We bring together over 10 tech non-profit communities on one evening showcasing a programme of speakers and interactive workshops. 

But for the event to take place we need your help!

We are aiming to make this years’ YorkTechFest 2019 event free! - If we meet our crowdfunding target.

Aimed at members of existing volunteer tech communities and also to those who would like to have a taster of what we do – come and be involved!

YorkTechFest 2019 will be delivered on Monday 28th October from 6pm at York Explore Library and Archive , Museum Street, York.  Here is the speaker and festival programme

Who runs YorkTechFest?

YorkTechFest is run by YorkDevelopers – a registered Charity who primary aim is to grow and develop tech non-profit communities.  YorkDevelopers are partnering with Explore a mutual benefit society with charitable status, owned by staff and community members and contracted by the City of York Council to deliver a library and archive service across the city.

How do I get a ticket for the event?

Tickets will be released 2 weeks before the event on Monday 14th October and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Together lets enable YorkTechFest 2019!
