Turing Fest brings an interesting group of people together... I think that's very important; we can't keep siloing and isolating these different cultures and disciplines. We need to bring them together and have discussions — how do we get engineering and product to work better together? How do we get marketing involved? How do we work together as an entire unit towards a better goal?

Iain Brown
Software engineer, Administrate

Turing Fest is like a tech conference, but better. It's not faceless. It's not anonymous. You're hearing real stories from real people. The networking isn't just there as a bolt-on — it really matters. You speak to people who are doing real things today, and that's important.

Harrison Gilmore
Product manager, Care Sourcer

I love that Turing Fest brings together a variety of disciplines under one roof – it's a great realization that all these different areas inform and interact with one another, and harmonizing them together is the way to build world-class companies! The backdrop of the Edinburgh Festival makes this event truly one of a kind.

Courtney Seiter
Director of People, Buffer

What's really great about Turing is that you have a really dense, compounding community that's getting better every year. When you come here, the conversations that you have about tactics, strategy and everything in between are really in-depth in a way that you just can't get anywhere else — plus, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful European cities out there!
