Important: Access details

Please ensure your full name is used when registering as this is needed by building security to let you in.

Finding the office in Tower42

As you enter Tower42, go to the front desk and give your name to receive a visitor pass for the building.

Go up the escalators to security, your bag will be quickly scanned and you pass through a metal detector.

Once through security, take the escalators immediately to your left - following the blue path. Walk all the way round to lifts and take the lift to the 24th floor.

At the 24th floor, get out of the lift and cross the hallway. Take the blue lifts to the 27th floor. Exiting the lift to your left you will find the Salesforce office

    It was a great event with over 50 developers across this Salesforce meetup, London Java, London Scala and London Clojurian communities...

    I need Salesforce to buy me a bigger office in a tower :)

    Hi guys, my train has been delayed unfortunately in to London this morning, so I'm running quite a bit behind. Would still be interested to pop in later though.

    Hello Gil,
    The only thing you need to know in advance is how to get to the office :)

    If you have ideas on what you want to work on, feel free to share them here. On the day I will help everyone get into groups and doing stuff, what ever that stuff may be.

    There are 38 developers signed up via the London Scala community meetup site, so this should be a busy hackathon with lots of opportunity to try out a range of technology and languages.
