About Highland Fling : Sessions

The Sessions is a regular forum where we discuss the issues that our industry faces. We want to provide support to people of all levels to help them get their jobs done. We want to inspire. We want to work together to solve common problems.

This isn't a cutting edge technical conference aimed at rock star developers. The web industry employs a wide range of specialists. We firmly believe that the only way it will improve is by gathering the people that are the industry to collectively explore how we make that happen and troubleshoot our jobs.


If you'd like to show your support for the conference and contribute to making it happen then we'd love to hear from you, get in touch with us and we can have a chat.
