Berkshire is a great place for anyone interested in computing and IT. The BCS Berkshire branch committee is enthusiastic about organizing events and talks on new IT topics and trends. We are committed to working with local organisations, schools and colleges to raise the profile of computing and IT in the local area, to children, students and adults. Keep an eye on our Events page for upcoming events. Most events are free so come along and bring your friends!

Get involved!

We also want to hear what is important to you. If there are topics you would like to see on the event list, have an idea about how the Berkshire branch can help people in your area, or are just interested in finding out more about the branch, feel free to contact us. If you have some time on your hands or want to bring ideas to the branch, why not join our Committee, or get involved in Volunteering? We are always happy to see new faces.
