SciVisum At Bar Camp Canterbury 2

This weekend (March 28th and 29th)  SciVisum are proud to be once again sponsoring Bar Camp Canterbury.

Deri Jones (CEO) and David Hobson (Web Testing Technician) will be presenting at the event, and other members of the SciVisum technical team will be on hand during the day.

BarCamp Canterbury is a conference that is a completely free to attend and based loosely around the theme of: innovative, unusual, and amusing examples of information and technology. Being a Canterbury based company, with strong links to the Universities and keen proponents of world-class software development processes using the best open-source tools, the event is a perfect fit.

SciVisum has provided both internships and industrial year placements for Canterbury students, as well as offering opportunities for graduates and PhDs to be involved in our Research and Development Team.

At the event on behalf of SciVisum will be:

Dave Hobson, Web Testing Technician.

Dave has PHd in electronic engineering from the University of Kent, a degree in software development from the University of Huddersfield, and a great deal of experience in web development. Dave ran the London Marathon on Sunday, despite an ankle injury, and raised lots of money for charity.

Deri Jones, CEO

Deri Jones, CEO of SciVisum Ltd, founded the company in 2003, with a view to help maximise online user experience, through 24/7 comprehensive ongoing emulation, monitoring and analysis of User Journey performance, enabling business wide understanding of the impact of online performance on the bottom line.

Prior to SciVisum, in 1997, Deri led web security testing company NTA Monitor, which he grew to 30 staff and sold in 2002. Deri’s online experience dates back to 1992, when he was Sales and Marketing Manager and then MD of the UK’s first ISP, EUnet GB.

Session Details

BarCamp Canterbury is a technology conference with a difference. It’s more like a gathering of enthusiastic people that are into tech, gadgets, science, or just about anything else that’s geeky and fun. There will be plenty of entertaining sessions and workshops on the day, and when sessions aren’t running, there’s usually other fun stuff happening: food and drink, games, conversation, silliness, and people hacking on projects. You can go to any session you like, and if you don’t find a session interesting, you can leave and go to another.

There is very little in the way of a formalised programme for the event and sessions will be finalised on the day.

There are no spectators, only participants!
