Podcast

The SSAGO podcast is a regular podcast for everyone in SSAGO! We'll be chatting about any SSAGO news, we'll be interviewing to clubs about what they've been up to, and we'll be playing some interactive games on the Discord server. All this means that everyone can get involved! Our plan is to record lots of segments to create a roughly monthly podcast. We'll be doing everything virtually, so you can join in regardless of where you are!

Web Team

Have an interest in web development and fancy diving into the SSAGO website, and all its associated systems?

We will be looking to build new areas, new features and update the website to make it the best it can be - responding to the continually changing and growing needs of SSAGO, club committees and the SSAGO membership.

From developing the SSAGO app, the membership system, the events system, building completely new web-based systems, and making everything we have better, there's plenty of opportunities to get involved in very exciting areas - and your ideas are at the forefront of what we work on!

Some degree of computing and development experience is required, but don't worry if you're not an expert - there's plenty of chance to learn as you go!
