    Yeah, pizzas ran out at 6.45! That is unacceptable. If 284 people attended, I expect at least 100 pizza boxes for hungry souls like me..Also, it would have been great if there were more networking opportunities.

      I'm not sure it needs more networking opportunities, but the schedule could be communicated better. I saw the event started at 6:30, so that's when I got there, not knowing it it meant the talks start then, or that's when the pre-talks meet & greet got going.

      The gap in the middle between the two blocks of talks could have been a little better. There's usually an after event at a local pub (The Windmill?), but it was only casually mentioned. Maybe a formal reminder after the last speaker would help?

    Too bad that pizza ran out. I always arrive slightly late, and I never find any pizza :(

    Hoping to attend my first event, schedule permitting.

    Quick question - is there anywhere to lock my bike? Or, as I have a fold up one, is it OK to bring it inside?

    May 9, 2013

    • Andrew J.

      OK, thanks.

      May 9, 2013

    • Gary C.

      If not up and down the street and new the tube will be proper places to lock your bike that are all fine.

    I think this clashes with Google I/O which occurs at the Google london campus

    May 3, 2013

    • Chris B.

      Shame for Google I/O!

      The Google I/O keynote is the day before; the 16th is just a ton of individual sessions.
