Geekeasy Derby: May

Geekeasy is a relaxed gathering of geeky/techy/creative types in Derby, who have an interest in learning and perhaps working together. It's very friendly, and you'll find an interesting mix of people to talk to.

Geek Speak: Mair Perkins, Ben Haynes and Richie Phillips from AnimateID will be telling us how they create animated logos - from storyboard to screen.

After the talk we normally carry on chatting, drinking and nibbling on samosas. All types of geek are welcome: creative, technical, digital, engineering, science, space, web, design, chic geeks and even non-geeks.

    Hope you all had a great night last night. Sorry I couldn't make it... But on the plus side, I have completed my first Stripe (PayPal alternative) payment module for a site I'm working on.

    Tonight's agenda included animation, solar flares, chair politics, stalking, age guessing, sleight of hand, something rude about butter, star trek, lizards, staring, Turkish, South African and French.
    Great stuff. Lovely to spend time with you all.
