Middlesbrough Front End welcomes Google 

Middlesbrough Front End is bringing the best speakers to Middlesbrough and following the digital clusters mission to put Teesside on the map. 

It’s first event of the year last night saw none other than Google Chrome Developer Advocate and Teesside Uni Alumni, Jake Archibald give two talks titled; “ready in seconds, even on 2g”. 

Co-founders of Middlesbrough Front End, Jamie Bradley and Lewis Morris also held a workshop for Teesside University students on using Gatsby to build websites, modern web development architecture and encourage students on the web development course. 

Jamie Bradley said: “This year we wanted to expand. People outside of the area don’t know how much is going on here in Teesside. 

“Other meet ups have struggled to get speakers like Jake so it’s fantastic to be able to bring him back to Teesside University. 

“I think we’ve succeeded so far.”
