We pride ourselves on the fact we have supported the local Oxfordshire tech community for the last 6 years. Whether it’s arranging an industry specific event, helping to host one or providing sponsorship we are fully committed to helping grow the local tech community and connecting likeminded individuals.
Not only do we help lay the foundations for the events but we also actively attend and engage with them as well. We think that it is essential for us to have a solid understanding of the industry in which we recruit for so you’ll always find someone from Haybrook onsite at an event to learn, participate and network.
The main events that we support and sponsor:
Oxford Geek Night
We have been one of the primary sponsors of Oxford Geek Nights for many years now. OGN is set up and run by Torchbox. It is a regular meet-up for designers and developers in Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. It was one of the first networking events for IT professionals in the local area, it was set up X years ago and is now on event number #52. Sadly covid-19 meant we had to delay the event but we are really looking forward to welcoming the OGN members to the next event as soon as it’s safe to do so.
The aim of Agile Oxfordshire is to share ideas, best practices and support participants in successfully applying Scrum and other Agile practices in Oxfordshire. It’s a great group and is endorsed by Scrum Alliance, so meeting up can count toward your Certified Scrum Professional qualification.
This group has consistently been bringing you great speakers since 2011.Every month there is a speaker who is invited to talk about how they apply User Experience principles in their projects and organisations. It is a relaxing and informal atmosphere. Speakers include peoples from Google, BBC, Microsoft, Financial Times, The Guardian, Mailchimp, GDS, NHS.There is a diverse audience and the event is for anyone interested in UX. Roles of attendees include (but not limited to): designers, researchers, developers, managers, CEOs.

We also have occasional social meet-ups.The group welcomes novices, intermediates and senior developers from the worlds of Laravel, Symfony, WordPress, Drupal, Zend, CakePHP and more besides.
