It’s fair to say the tech sector is made up of a pretty diverse cross-section of people, but if you’re one of the more introverted tech-types out there, maybe it’s time you got out more – and let’s face it, most of us could probably do with to getting out more.

Here are a few upcoming Liverpool web developer and tech meetups which will help you keep up with the cutting edge while interacting with others in what, cyberpunk novelist, William Gibson once called the ‘meatspace’.
