Tech Meetups and Events in Glasgow

I was putting together a list of lists of tech meetups and events in Glasgow for DDS students… and thought I’d share it here instead.

There are a wide range of meetup and events occurring in and around Glasgow on a wide range of topics – many of which are relevant to topics studied at the DDS.
