At the moment the North East seems to be buzzing with tech and creative events pretty much every week. This is awesome news, however because there is no central repository for the local events I tend to miss a lot.
So I thought it would be a nifty idea to build a site where event organisers can upload and share there events for free, with the North East community. A quick trip to the domain registrars and NEevents.co.uk was born.
The site will be very simple, imagine a month view of a calendar and a submission form to submit your event. That's it. I've even had the site designed, the .PSD files are sitting here. What I'm missing however is a developer.
Help me find a developer
I don't want to use an agency, I want to use a freelance developer based in the North East, who will - in an ideal world - give his or her time for free.
Why free Kieron?
Well, the site will be free to use and for businesses etc to upload events, it will be a community based site built for (and hopefully by) the North East creative and tech community. If you decide to build it for me you will have a permanent link at the bottom of the homepage saying "built by...." and I'll also give you a 6 month banner slot on the site to advertise your services. Yes, the site will have a few banner slots but they won't be intrusive and are there purely to pay for the hosting, I won't be getting rich from this.
So if you want to be a part of this and get involved with the tech community in the north east and attach your name to something awesome that will become the defacto destination for cool events in the region and will get *millions of visitors, then drop me a line via the contact form.
