Code The City Weekends would not happen were it not for the generosity of our sponsors.
As we approach CodeTheCity #8 we must recognise two organisations who have backed this event.
The first is The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) who is sponsoring the event through its ALISS Programme.
The ALISS Programme is excited to be sponsoring and attending the Code the City, AI and Chatbots hack weekend. This area of our work allows us to test concepts and prototype real world solutions to problems like; how does a person who is living with sight loss access the great local resources available on ALISS? Or, how does a person who finds it challenging to use normal desk-based computers access the local support available through ALISS? We will hopefully test these types of problems at the hack weekend and follow this up with a blog on our work.
Please follow the Alliance and their work on Twitter: at @ALLIANCEScot @ALISSProgramme or the hashtag search for #ALISS . If you are attending the weekend please make sure you hook up with @DouglasMaxw3ll and have a chat to him about the great work that his organisation does.
Our other main sponsor is Fifth Ring.
Fifth Ring is a marketing and communications agency in Aberdeen, Houston and Singapore with a big focus on digital and inbound marketing. Fifth Ring is already experimenting with conversational interfaces for some of their client work.
If you are attending the weekend please make sure to say hello to Steve Milne or Alan Stobie to discuss some of the great work they do.
