We’ve decided to keep it informal with drinks at the Watershed and a chance just to chat and talk about geeky things instead of having food and a speaker. Follow our twitter feed or facebook page to find out where we are sitting on the night!
The event starts at 7pm - As always we do not exclude men, but they must be accompanied by a Girl Geek so we don’t get outnumbered!

Our hosts this month are ForgeRock – a Silicon Valley startup and global open source vendor. Backed by one of the world’s most prestigious investors who fund the likes of Facebook and Groupon, ForgeRock has just launched its UK HQ in Bristol’s Queen Square. They were worried about squeezing us all into their office so they’ve booked a function room at the nearby Bristol Hotel for this event.
I know it’s close to Christmas and short notice but the buffet selection looks amazing and we’ve got yet another great speaker lined up for you.
Another great event this month from a very interesting Girl Geek – Cerian Jones will be talking about patents and bringing some inventions to show us at this event sponsored by UDL Intellectual Property LLP and hosted by the City of Bristol College.
UDL will be providing the refreshments so just bring yourself for what promises to be yet another very interesting and entertaining occasion.
For our next event we will be visiting the HQ of Bloodhound – the Supersonic Car being developed in Bristol, with an interesting talk from Jenna, one of the engineers on the project. For this event please bring a dish or a drink to share. More info on our next dinner page.
