Bristech is a not-for-profit meetup group whose purpose is to facilitate knowledge sharing in the tech space in Bristol and its surrounding geographical area. Check out http://bris.tech and https://www.meetup.com/bristech/ for details.

We have monthly meetups and an annual conference (http://2016.bris.tech)

We’re software focused, but have a very broad range, e.g. machine learning, big data, ethics, robotics, cloud, programming languages, agile, testing, etc.

The monthly meetups have two talks, each of 45 minutes, and free drinks and pizza are provided. We have a maximum capacity of 120 per meetup and operate a wait list.

The annual conference has 18 talks in 3 tracks over a full day in November, plus an after party.

We started in 2013 and have grown to around 1300 members (as of August 2016), making Bristech the biggest tech meetup in Bristol.
