Agile Peterborough has been established as an independent group, which enables like-minded technology, software and engineering professionals to meet and share knowledge and best practice. The growth of Peterborough has seen lots of companies either moving to the city, or expanding their operations, which has opened up more software and technology roles than ever before. It’s this growth that has led to a steady increase of talented and enthusiastic people enhancing a local knowledge base and fuelling the demand for this kind of community

Alex continued:

Not only will Agile Peterborough be a forum for sharing ideas, it will also give people a chance to regularly hear from leading brands and independent experts, along with running technical events and working with local schools to promote Technology and Engineering careers. There is a real appetite amongst the technology community to come together to share ideas and at the same time we want to help promote Peterborough as a destination for forward-thinking experts who are leading the way on all things digital

We’re always keen to support the technology community and loved the way this idea brings a piece of Silicon Roundabout to Peterborough. Alex has created a local exchange of technology and digital ideas and the buzz it’s creating is very exciting
