    Pow wows for web folk

    We run events for people who design or build websites, who are involved with the designing/building of them or who are just plain old interested.

    The are four events per year: a large, main web conference in May (‘Port80‘) and three, low cost, quarterly evening events (‘Localhost‘). All events are currently held in Newport, South Wales (bruv!).
