Where and When?
You’ll know you’re in the right place as “CodeBase” is written across the glass doors.
When you arrive there will be someone in reception who can guide you to the right place. If you arrive late and no one is around contact us on Twitter: @scotrug, or send an email to the list. We’ll come and get you!
March means that spring has arrived. The days are no longer interrupted by incredible stretches of darkness; there’s more light in the world. Wee white and yellow buds start to poke their heads above the ground, marking the return of brighter colours to the natural world. Renewal, and new beginnings.
Heather Burns is a digital law specialist. She spends her work time trying to bridge the gap between digital policy makers and those who are are designing and developing web things that are impacted by such policies. The things you do online, from sending messages to friends on WhatsApp to starting a new business, are impacted by the decisions of people at local, regional and global levels. Understanding current law and pending law can help inform the choices you need to make as to where you store your data, and what you need to say to your local representatives.
Heather has kindly agreed to come and speak to us and share some thoughts on the current state of digital law. As usual, there will be plenty of time for questions afterwards.
We’ll supply some snacks to help get your hunger through to dinner. CodeBase has water available from their kitchen but feel free to bring along your own juice or water. We’re a friendly bunch of humans and newcomers are most welcome. See some of you there?
