    Great overview of several interesting web technologies. Some great "real-world" stories from the trenches.

    well organised, personally would prefer less talks per meetup but more frequent to leave time between each presentation for Q&A.

    Great, except for presentations were a little long and could do with some sharpening; noise from other room didn't help.

    Good as always, but the quality of the speakers is patchy as always. Generic pitch on Drupal was bordering on the embarrassing. Having said that one or two talks were very good.

    Thanks for organising this guys, and thanks for the beer, Squirrel!

    I'd say to the people who are on waiting list to risk it, as from my own experience Skill Matters' evening talks are usually left with many name badges uncollected in the end, so you have a chance. BUT don't hold me responsible if you couldn't get in!

    I can't get back in time. I have registered at Skills Matters so if someone wants to blag their way in on my name, please be my guest

    I had an email, but telling me it's unlikely I'd get one...

    It looks like if you did, you would have got an reminder email about 11:35 from Ruxandra.

  • Alen M.

    Hey. Won't make it to skills matter but will be at the pub. Someone can grab my place.

  • Luke S.

    Looks like the skillsmatter list is the important one and I didn't sign up to that, so probably I won't risk it.

  • Chris P.

    Probably not; will got to PHP London meetup instead.

    February 2, 2011

  • Russell S.

    Are you guys (Chris, Armel & Jazeps) going to come along with out the confirmation from Skillsmatter? I'm from out of London so it's a risk for me.

    February 2, 2011

  • Chris P.

    Same here.

    February 2, 2011

  • Russell S.

    I'm having the same problem...
