We were greeted with tea, coffee, beer and cakes, a good start to any conference in my opinion. In case anyone reading this doesn't know of BaseCamp3, it is an affordable business space for the creative industries, predominantly start-ups, inclusive of free business advice and much more. Teams currently located here include SetGo , Damibu and MilkyTea . Other teams also in attendence included Nyamyam , HogRocket and RebelPlay . Francis McEnegart an IP Lawyer was also on hand to offer his expertise.
It was very interesting to see and hear what other teams in the area are working on and great to talk to members of the community in person. If there are any Indie developers in the North West that want to get involved with the NWIndies community then be sure to check out the website. All the members are friendly and will openly discuss their experiences, some of which you may find invaluable in such a competitive, changeable and volatile industry.
We would like to thank Maritn Linklatter for starting the group, Dave Burrows for organising the event, BaseCamp3 for hosting it and everyone that is involved in NWIndies and supporting eachother as a community.
