Hosting TechChats

It's easy to host a TechChat. It just takes three simple steps:

  1. Find a pub.
    It should be convenient to reach, and have enough space for a few people to gather and talk. Somewhere that does "pub grub" food is a good idea.
  2. Choose a date and time.
    Weekday evenings (5pm onwards), or weekend afternoons (2pm onwards) are good choices. Weekday evenings are the usual choice for meet-ups like this, but the choice is yours.
  3. Tell us about it.
    Let us know the venue, date and time of your TechChat, and we'll post the information on the BCAB website. We'll also help you promote it through our email and social networking channels. Email the details to
