Event description

A hands-on making and meeting event exploring the edges of technology on the wild edge of Scotland.

Tiree Tech Wave (TTW13) 23-28 March 2017, Isle of Tiree, Scotland, UK Register by 24th February for early bird rate.

*** note: support available for members of SICSA HCI ***

We are once again coming together to explore the outer edges of technology on the outer edges of Scotland, opening your own horizons in a land of endless sky.

Come if you want to make sense of the way technology engages with society, or if you simply want make things with RPis, Arduinos and conductive thread. The western fringe is where scholarship was kept alive in the Dark Ages, and where wind surfers gather today. At Tiree Tech Wave we try to capture a little of the depth of the former and the excitement of the latter as we explore the social, artful, playful and practical edges of technology.

There are no fixed outcomes, you come, you meet, you do stuff together. However, because there are no fixed outcomes, many exciting things happen.

At the last TTW a number of projects were centred around Telephone box installations, and there may be some continuation of that. http://tireetechwave.org/projects/telephone-boxes/

In addition, Liam Cavin a statistician working for the Scottish Government is planning to come to give a workshop about open data available at statistics.gov.scot and how to use it. ... and following the data theme, if there is sufficient interest, Alan Dix will do a one day tutorial on 'understanding statistics' the day before TTW13 starts (Wed 22nd March) - please email Alan ASAP if you are interested. This will also be open to non-TTW attendees and timed so that it is possible to do as a day trip from Glasgow. However, the final agenda is your own.
