    AI, Blockchain and Open Source are terms which continually grab attention, but are they merely buzzwords or will they really disrupt our industry?

    Our new webinar series will look at separating the hype from reality when dealing with Open Source Technologies, AI and Blockchain. Join us to look at examples of where these technologies are already being used in our industry, as well as assess their potential for positive change and consider alternative courses of action.


    What will I learn?

    • What these technologies really offer.
    • How to engage and work with them.
    • How they can fit within a wider product, platform or technology strategy
