Epiphany returns for another year at the Leeds Digital Festival next week with a number of events to educate, inspire and entertain digital and creative professionals about the areas of the industry we work in and have a passion for.
Having worked with Leeds Digital Festival since its humble beginnings as a pub chat between like-minded figures in our industry, it has evolved into a major calendar event for the city to celebrate its thriving digital culture with nearly 100 events spanning across the week.
Starting on Monday 22nd April, the week-long festival includes talks from experts on virtual and augmented reality, coding tutorials, digital career clinics, as well as a chance to hear from the CEO and founder of IMDB and the Global Digital Director of Marks & Spencer.
