ShareUp #5 – Etch UK

15th June 2017


Our friends at Etch UK were kind enough to provide a relaxed office space with a topped up bar.  As always we appreciate the local support for the event, and without support from agencies like Etch we wouldn’t be able to exist, thank you again!


Ben Joy

Ben Joy, a manager at Moov2 was inspired by his team to develop a personal website. He talked from the perspective of someone who had no prior coding experience, the difficulties and challenges he faced and how he overcame them. It was refreshing to see how someone threw themselves out of their comfort zone and try something completely new. The talk is a must view if you want some tips on engaging with a new hobby or skill!

Tim Drake

Tim Drake, a Digital Product Designer at Etch has been exploring the wonderful world of Inclusive Design and had put together a powerpoint as part of his commitment. To trial his run he had practised it once beforehand at Etch’s lightning talks, and then presented his talk to the ShareUp crew later that same day. It was a really thought provoking talk that led to some interesting discussions post-presentation, and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.
