A Chester tech firm has been announced as the sponsor of a local developer’s group for the third year running.
WM Reply, which specialises in enhancing collaborative tools and business systems platforms for large organisations is proud to announce it is the sponsor of the tech community group for 2018/2019.
Chester Devs is a not for profit community group for over 1,000 developers in the region, providing free monthly events for its members to learn new skills, keep up with technology, best practice and network. It has proven an important forum for those working in the city’s tech scene, something WM Reply wanted to acknowledge and support.
Through their financial sponsorship of the group, WM Reply have also been invited to speak at one or more of the events held throughout the year, which will also be streamed live via the group’s YouTube channel.
Cathy Taylor, who heads up the WM Reply team in Chester, said:
“Chester Devs has played a key part in the development of a strong and thriving tech scene in and around Chester. As a company which places importance on investing in the local tech community, sponsoring Chester Devs was a real no-brainer.”
Fran Hoey, the founder of the community tech group said:
“We’ve grown a lot since we first started in 2012, but one of the most important things for me was for Chester Devs to be free of charge. Thanks to WM Reply’s sponsorship this is still possible.”
This latest news follows the company’s relocation of their Chester office from Crook Street to One City Place, and an ongoing recruitment drive which has already seen a number of recent appointments to the team based there.
