about the talk
Work in the Web is a free 3-day intensive workshop for students wanting to work in the Web industry. It runs in-house at Mixd, a small web agency based in Harrogate. Every year we open our doors to a small group of students and run 10 hands-on practical sessions on the skills we think are important to working in the web industry but are often lacking in formal academic programmes.
In this talk, Luke will discuss how Work in the Web came to be, why it’s so important to us, and the importance of building stronger ties between industry professionals and academic institutions.
