Digital Design Portfolio Review Hosted by Chatter (11am-2pm)

Here at Chatter, we work with big brands on their employer branding and recruitment comms and we'd love to share what we've learned and help you get ahead.

If you're a recent graduate, or a digital creative who'd like to get a fresh pair of eyes on your portfolio we'd love to help!

Come in on the 20th of April and our Creative Director and Head of Development can give you their insight on how clients view work and how to make your portfolio stand out.

We've got the wifi, the know-how and the coffee, you bring your portfolio...

Come Pi With Me Hosted by Orange Punch (11:45am-12:30pm)

Orange Punch host Raspberry Pi-fuelled discussion and entertainment. We aim to answer such questions as; “What is a Raspberry Pi?”, “What can you build with a Pi?” “How does a Computer actually work?” and “Who is the champion of Space Invaders?”

Beginning with a very brief history of computer science and computer components, a demonstration of some Pi creations and applications, we shall then attempt to build an Arcade machine built on a Raspberry Pi followed by a mini tournament.

No knowledge of computing or Raspberry Pis is required to enjoy the session.

A Tour Through Time - QR Code Scavenger Hunt (11-4)

Are you interested in technology and fascinated by the local history? Castleton Mill is hosting a QR Code Scavenger Hunt as part of their Very Digital Day for Leeds Digital Festival.
Each new code you find will take you on a tour of the Mill and through the 200 year history of the building. Explore and compare the latter and current day technologies at the mill. So come down, take the tour and rise to the challenge.

Guest Speakers Organised by Matt Essam (1:30pm-3pm)

Creative business coach, seasoned public speaker and all-round great guy, Matt Essam will be hosting our expert sessions throughout Castleton Mill’s Very Digital Day.
Covering topics from business and personal development, to surviving as a freelance professional, these talks will be informal, informative, creative and unmissable for anyone currently working or considering working in the creative industries.
