Brightec on GitHub

GitHub is an invaluable resource for developers all over the world. We've collected below a selection of our own GitHub repositories and related blog posts.

Our repositories on GitHub

We're always eager to play a helpful role in the developer community, both locally and further afield. With that in mind, we take part in regular mobile meetups in our home city of Brighton.

We also regularly post the useful code we've developed onto GitHub.
