We met Mike and Ben many years ago in 2014. They were school teachers with a big ambition to leave their day jobs and set up shop together. To promote and educate folk about the study of playfulness in children. The importance of play.
This social sees *our friends *Ludicology come back to tell us their amazing story, their challenges along the way, and how they've flourished and never looked back. Oh and some of you might remember them from our Sunny Day Hack in the summer of 2014. We were there at the beginning, the catalysts!
Our second speaker is Liam 'Anthology' Cookson, and if you've not met him, he is AWESOME! Founder and mastermind behind CodeUp Chester, a free mentoring program for adults who want to learn to code, Liam is also one of the organisers of Django Girls Chester - they are holding a 'how to build a website' womens workshop next year. As we all know more ladies are needed in the technology and IT industry, and they are tackling the issue head on. Liam also works at Blacon Library.
