💻Code: Ladies that UX Brighton and codebar Brighton are putting on a hackathon-style event tomorrow, to celebrate International Women's Day. During the event, attendees will consider and experience the ways that developers, UXers, and content designers collaborate on projects. During the workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Research and run basic diagnostics to review a website.
  • Consider functional and non-functional requirements.
  • Bring designers and developers together to look at usability and accessibility issues.
  • Consider the process of content audits.
  • Perform a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) assessment.

Tickets here!

🎨Collage Club: A perennial Seagull favourite, Cult Milk's Collage Club returns to The Hope and Ruin this Tuesday. Drop in from 6pm to 9pm, bring some magazines to donate if you can, and unwind and have fun while making a lovely collage. Or a terrifying collage. Up to you, really. Beer prizes available, and entry is free!

🏖️Beach clean: Surfers Against Sewage have a beach clean planned for Sunday. Meeting on Banjo Groyne near Yellowwave at 10am, and meeting back up after 2 hours (sometimes less depending on the group and weather) for a weighing of bags back at the starting place. Low key, mindful and chilled. Perfect for newbie beach cleaners who are intrigued about the affects of plastic on our beaches and those regulars eager to get some vitamin D and get stuck in!

🍱Food: Resident photographer and The One Who Does Tech Stuff™️ for The Seagull (and Brighton's newest resident, probably) went for her first lunch out in Brighton in Seven Dials. Amber reports:

T @ The Dials: our visit began with amazement at the sliding door. If you're not a fan of sliding doors, you can stop now and move on to the next bit because T @ The Dials is not for you. However, if you're one of the lucky few who is not perturbed at the prospect of sliding doors, T @ The Dials is warm, cosy, and allows for some great people-watching. The sandwiches are beautiful and very large, which was good for someone who spent the last couple of days moving house and unloading a massive van. I also saw a big dog and a man with brightly coloured hair so I knew I would fit in, despite not being a man or a dog.

☕️Drink: Deputy editor Owen also went to T @ The Dials.

I had an iced oat latte. It were nice. Sweet, small, buzzy (that goes for both). I need to get changed. No! [laughs]
