About the event

Our theme for this months event is the Amazing World of Robotics and Automation!  We are excited to have two fantastic speakers lined up. We will run the two speakers consecutively, with some Q&A and we’ll use Zoom breakout rooms at the END of the two sessions for those who choose to participate. There will be named/themed zoom rooms and participants will be able to choose which to join, or to leave the meeting instead.

Hosted by Canterbury Tech’s Neil Hamilton and EPIC Podcast host Andy Poulsen, this event is an excellent opportunity to get together safely in Alert Level 2.

BYO your favourite beverage and some nibbles and join us online!
