19th March 2015 - Meet Up @ ThoughtWorks London

On March 19th we had our second meet up. This time the good folks at ThoughtWorks London not only offered us the use of their space, but also supplied beverages & food.

First Meetup

On September 3rd we had our first meet up, some 60 people had signed up to the event & around 45 attended & we had 8 speakers.

Many, many thanks for Charley & James @ Amsys for securing the venue & for all speakers & attendees. It was everything we all hoped for from a debut event.

If you missed the event, the transitions between speakers were flawlessly smooth & no one hollered through a door whilst people where presenting.

If you attended, you’ll know the truth to the above & I truly hope you enjoyed the event.

In the next few days, a survey will be sent out to those whom attended & watch this space for the next event.

Please also visit or join the following to carry on the conversations from the night.
