DevXS is a FREE developer marathon spread across three days, where students from across the UK and beyond are encouraged to team up and build cool things that contribute to university life. All you need to do is get here! If you are not a student, it would be great if you could pass this email onto relevant people in your organisation.

Please note we actively encourage you to speak to computer science tutors, who are also welcome to attend as long as they bring along some students! Tutors might be able to organise a team of you to attend (e.g. travelling by minibus etc). If you think you might have difficulty getting here, please contact us on, and we might be able to help.

Tell others about it by printing off a poster and putting it somewhere visible where others can see it!


DevXS is about students sharing their ideas, mashing up data and building prototypes that improve, challenge and positively disrupt the research, teaching and learning landscapes of further and higher education.

We’re going to award prizes to the best ideas, prototypes and collaborations and there are going to be developers from universities around the country hanging around to help you out.

So if you are a student (undergraduate or postgraduate) or a tutor, please register for this event as soon as possible, places are limited and it is a fantastic opportunity to improve your CV and work with some of the best young developers in the country! You may even get the chance to speak to recruiters from industry.

The event will take place at the University of Lincoln on the weekend of 11-13 November, 2011. We will provide free accommodation on the night of the 11th (twin rooms) and then a relaxation zone on the 12th (bring your sleeping bag!). There will also be free food and refreshments!

Register now before it is too late:

The 5th Space Symposium will be taking place at Warwick University on 29th March 2010. 

Registration is open and details of the event are below.

The Fifth Symposium on Social Learning Space: Knowledge Spaces

The Reinvention Centre for Undergraduate Research, Westwood Campus, University of Warwick, Monday 29 March, 2010  

‘Knowledge spaces are the thick social spaces through which truth, knowledge and power are created’ (Sarah Wright, 2005: 908)

Following the success of the previous four Space Symposia, Knowledge Spaces addresses the role of architecture, spatial planning and the use of different spaces in the construction and experience of curricula and pedagogy in Higher Education.

The symposium will address the question of how the spaces we create, occupy and challenge, both within the university and beyond it, affect what and how we know, as well as considering who plays what roles in the process of knowledge creation and communication. In particular, the symposium will explore:

* The landscapes of learning in Higher Education

* The use of ‘real life’ spaces such as urban, public, employment and community settings for the development and enactment of curricula and assessment

* The relationship between physical classroom spaces and different pedagogical approaches 

* The role of university buildings and curricula in shaping pedagogical and political relations between students and staff

The event offers an exciting and diverse programme of keynote lecture(s), participatory workshop(s) and an interactive research exhibition.

Confirmed speakers and workshop leaders:

Professor Mike Neary, University of Lincoln: (Learning Landscapes and the struggle for the idea of the University)

Professor Jonothan Neelands: Institute of Education, University of Warwick (tba)

Oscar van den Wijngaard and Wilfred van Dellen, University College Maastricht: (Colleagues and Peers at University College Maastricht: Collaboration and reciprocity as educational strategy)

Dr Sarah Czerny and Students, University of Rijeka, Croatia:  (Blocked Spaces: (Re)considering the staff-student relation form the perspective of the blokada in Rijeka)


The cost of the conference is £75 for waged delegates and £10 for students.

Online registration is now available via this web page:
