On Thursday 6th April, Manchester Digital held a roundtable discussion to understand how the Investigatory Powers Bill (IP Bill) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impact Manchester Digital’s member businesses in the future.
Tech and digital experts will meet in Manchester next month to discuss how to successfully transform the region’s business landscape, following recent research that found there is a worsening gender and skills gap in the industry.
Manchester continues to be a vibrant home for tech in the UK and it just happens to have retained its title as the best place to live in the UK. So, is moving north the new moving south? We caught up with Co-Op’s newest Head of Product, Adam Warburton.
The gender gap in the North’s digital technology sector is continuing to widen, with workforces split 72:28 male to female, compared with a 60:40 split last year, according to the results of Manchester Digital’s annual digital skills audit.
To round off the year we thought we would ask your elected representatives - the Manchester Digital Council - for their thoughts and predictions on what trends and changes we will see to the digital and technology industry in 2017.
