    Robert Neroli- could you put the piece of code up which you used for your lambda talk? The book idea was excellent and illustrated the idea well. Thanks

    Enjoyed the meetup -Debbie what is the best way to put code up for people to look at?

    It was nice to see so many people there last night.
    If anyone wants the slides from my date/time talk, they're shared on prezi
    and the source code samples are on GitHub

    Just a quick note to say thanks for an enjoyable evening. Learn a few new things to investigate and I look forward to the next one!

    Many thanks.

    Hi there,
    I have set myself as attending but will not be able t get there until 7pm, is this acceptable or would this just be a disruption?

      Hi Ben, we don't usually start the main talk(s) till about 7pm, so you should be fine. Look forward to seeing you!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
