Tech experts are going mobile tonight as they share their knowhow at the latest event turning the spotlight on Sunderland’s burgeoning digital sector.

Speakers from Hedgehog Lab and Throneware will share their knowledge of digital, mobile and app development at the second Sunderland Digital event, at Sunderland Software Centre.

It is aimed at the digital community who want to keep up to speed with the latest developments in the world of tech.

Sunderland Digital is a new group which meet on the third Wednesday of every month.

Organisers hope it will become a highlight in the calendar of the city's technology community.

Nathan Lawson of Consult and Design, one of the organisers, said: “Sunderland Digital is an opportunity to bring to life the many ways in which individuals and organisations are using apps and mobile technology to engage with their audiences and the latest technical developments that are creating new and exciting opportunities.

“Sunderland, and the North East at large, is home to a vibrant community of digital and technology experts.

"We hope Sunderland Digital will become a ‘hub’ for them – somewhere they’re keen to attend to not only learn more, but also socialise with like-minded people.

"It’s really about bringing people in this field together to shine a spotlight on the great work that’s coming out of Sunderland at the moment and building that digital community."

The next Sunderland Digital meeting has already gained regional attention, with more than 60 people registered.

It is free to attend and will take place from 6pm tonight at Sunderland Software Centre.
