    Everything went perfectly to the plan and so I am very happy. Although a lot of people couldn't make it due to the weather we still had a good turn out. Thanks to everyone who helped we were on time, did record the session in video, and finished the talk with proper Q&A at the end with plenty of time left for networking.

    Not going to be able to make it to this one (I'm going away for the weekend) but I see that I would have to join a waiting list if I could indeed come. Oh well! Hopefully I will be free for the next meetup

    Hi Guys
    If we can manage on time, we will get someone to record this for us so you can watch it later. Thanks

    I'm in the same boat as Henry and have had to back-out :(
    Sorry about that; but at least there are people on the waiting list who will benefit :)
    I'll make sure to attend the next one, looked very interesting.

    We have an excess of 80 people who signed up. So there's now a waiting list in place. Apologies if this is not convenient for anyone.
