StackTech is a cross-government event that brings together technologists to discuss common issues and solutions. The fourth edition of StackTech will take place on 18 October in Westminster and the event is a great opportunity to network.

The theme of StackTech 4 is emerging technologies, cloud infrastructure and platforms. You’ll have a chance to:

  • hear what other government organisations are working on
  • contribute to or run an unconference session
  • meet colleagues working in technology roles across government

Date, time and location

When: 18 October from 9:30am to 4pm

Where: Central Hall, Westminster, London

Who should attend

StackTech 4 is open to all technology practitioners, including civil servants and government contractors, from central government and the wider public sector.
