The tech buzz was electric at this week’s Digital Festival hosted at Tramshed Tech, well and truly proving that London is not the only world for tech events! Welcome to Cardiff, home to a vibrant tech community of collaborators, innovators, start-ups, trail blazers, investors and educators.

It was our first year attending Digital, we weren’t quite sure what to expect, but any expectations were surpassed just by the first keynote address bright and early on a Monday morning by Alexandra Deschamps Sonino @iotwatch .

“Digital” encompasses so many areas, technology touches on the lives of all of us, in business, at home and in our communities. Digital Festival did a really good job of bringing all of that together with such a variety of speakers, workshops, technology, trends, learning and showcasing what’s happening in Cardiff’s Tech community.

If I was forced to voice one take away from the event, I’d say that Welsh businesses and communities have the opportunity to make Cardiff an showcase Tech Hub inspiring the next generation. We’ve got great foundations and talent as well as a beautiful tech and rural playground, and might we be the next #smartcity? Another great keynote, delivered by @inma_martinez

See you next year @TheDigitalFest
