Hope you are all enjoying the delights of English summer. For those of you not holidaying on sunny shores, we shall be having the next Hacker News meetup on 25th August at Skills Matter from 18:30 followed by the usual beers at the Slaughtered Lamb from around 8ish.
It also appears that we may have one or two speaking slots free. If you have any cool projects to demo, want to share something you learned or have anything else that the fine hackers of London would find interesting, please let me know.
Please register with Skills Matter on their event page at http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/home/hacker-news-london-august-meetup/js-2509 to ensure they know you are coming and let you in.
