Podcamp Halifax starts now!

We made it!

It’s been an amazing few months getting ready for the first ever Podcamp Halifax and we’re so happy to have watched the community pull together to make this event happen. With 240 people registered, a full roster of presenters, and keynote Andrew Baron alive and well after his first experience at a Halifax pub, we can already call Podcamp Halifax a huge success.

We’re already at Alderney Gate putting the final touches on the venue but we can’t wait to see you and get the show on the road. For those who can’t make it, stay tuned for video of as many presentations as we can cover or keep an eye on #podcamphfx on Twitter for the latest updates as they happen.

Thanks again for your support as this has all come together and let’s make sure we rock this!
