North East Bytes

North East Bytes (NEBytes) is a User Group covering the North East and Cumbrian regions of the United Kingdom. We have technical meetings covering Development and IT Pro topics every month.

Meeting Format

We meet every third Wednesday of every month except in December where we meet on the second Wednesday. Each meeting consists of two excellent one hour long sessions from a stellar line up of speakers from the UK, Europe and beyond. One session will cover a Development topic and the second an IT Pro topic. In between there is a half an hour break for food, refreshments and time for you to chat with the other attendees. Invariably we also follow the meeting with a drink in a local pub.

Meeting Location

All meetings are held at Newcastle University. We are very grateful to the University for providing this facility to us.

What Does it Cost?

Nothing, Zilch, Nada! All of our meetings are free to attend, we don’t intend to charge for any of our meetings. We provide our time for organising and arranging our events. Speakers kindly offer their time for free.

We provide cold refreshments free of charge however we do operate an honesty/donation box whereby if you wish to partake in hot food (pizza etc), please put a small donation in the box at the beginning of the meeting to help us to cover the costs of the purchase of the food. Any monies left over from this at the end of the year are used to provide giveaways and prizes for the group for the following year.

Events coming up

We don't have any upcoming events for this user group. Do you know this group? If so, why not submit a future event? We also support iCal, EventBrite and Meetup feeds.
