AB Open is pleased to announce a call for participation (CFP) in Wuthering Bytes, the annual community technology festival it produces, seeking those interested in hosting a talk, workshop, roundtable, or other event between Friday the 30th of August and Sunday the 8th of September.

Wuthering Bytes — produced by AB Open as part of its contribution to the community — has grown considerably from the first event, held at Hebden Bridge Town Hall, in 2013: Wuthering Bytes 2017 saw attendees gather from across the world for ten days of events covering topics from open source hardware and software, field-programmable gate array (FPGA) programming, open-source digital design, artificial intelligence in embedded systems, and even a live recording of the Tech for Good podcast.

2019 looks to be no smaller, boasting another ten-day run — and organisers Andrew Back and Tim Harbour are seeking participants to run workshops, talks, or even entire event days as part of the schedule.

“We are now full steam ahead with planning for Wuthering Bytes 2019, which will run from Friday 30th August until Sunday 8th September,” Andrew and Tim write in the announcement. “We are thrilled to confirm that Laura James will be returning once again as compere for Festival Day, we already have some amazing talks lined up and, of course, there will be the Wuthering Bytes social that evening.

“We will very soon confirm the first participating events and if you or a group you are involved with would like to host a day or even just a morning or afternoon of talks, workshops, or perhaps a roundtable discussion, please do get in touch.”

Interested parties should contact Andrew and Tim via email, while information on previous Wuthering Bytes festivals can be found on the official website.
