This month's meeting will be at the new tech meet venue, over at The Birmingham Science Park Aston. Car parking is available, as is wifi and pubs nearby :)

The plan for the evening is for early arrivals to meet at about 6pm in The Sack Of Potatoes for food and pre-drinks, and then head over to the meeting rooms about 7.30/7.45pm for an 8pm start. We'll see how things progress but as we only have one talk this month, we may head to one of the pubs afterwards, for those who want a quick drink and more discussion.

Feel free to come along, inviting friends and colleagues if you can. As always entry is free to all.
