    Thank you for this month's Product Tank, I left really inspired by all of the presentations. I know the BBC were filming it, can this be viewed online anywhere?

    The content was a little 'egg sucking' for me but the speakers were great, very engaging

    • Andrew J S.

      Simone - how would you recommend improving it?

      1 · September 21, 2013

    • Simone P.

      Hi Andrew it wasnt intended as a critism but more of a personal statement - having worked in pure agile development "iterate often and test at the end of every sprint" is indisputable so hearing the same content from all speakers with no conflicting opinion felt a little obvious. I would have prefered a little more variability in opinion or method

    Really loved the venue and speakers.

  • Dave N.

    Is there wi-fi Internet access at the venue?

    September 19, 2013

  • Anthony O.

    Real shame. I would have loved to go to this one. Really important topic.

    September 19, 2013

  • Simon C.

    Due to BBC security restrictions only those people who were on the list on Tuesday will be able to attend tonight. Sorry.

    September 19, 2013

    • Roland

      ...That's a terrible restriction on massively popular event.

      1 · September 19, 2013

  • Gokul

    Is there a way I can attend considering recent dropouts?

    September 19, 2013

    • Rob L.

      I'm not an organiser but...I think the attendee list had to be submitted yesterday for BBC security reasons so last minute drop outs can't be replaced with new guests.

      September 19, 2013

    • Simon C.

      No, unfortunately due to restrictions from BBC security we can't let anyone else RSVP now. It was why we pushed to have people change their RSVPs earlier.

      September 19, 2013

  • Michael K.

    I unfortunately can no longer attend tonight in case there's the option for someone to have my seat. Thanks

    September 19, 2013

  • Juliane B.

    I am really sorry for the short notice, but I won't be able to make it. I hope it is not too late for someone to take my seat.

  • Azadi Cevet S.

    Stuck in a faraway land. Gutted to miss this one.

    Frustrated I now can't make this as it sounds like a great one! Enjoy whoever gets my place. Great venue for it too. Look forward to the videos.

    September 16, 2013

  • Vic

    I got it. Thank you!

    September 15, 2013

  • Inga B.

    Gutted I can't make it! Work is conspiring against me. Hope someone else enjoys my seat!

  • Rebecca P.

    Hello, perhaps I am being slow but I can't see how to add my last name to my profile, can anyone help? I used my FB login.

    September 12, 2013

  • Pouya J.

    I thought we receive email notification when an event is set up. I didn't get any. But I am really keen to attend and hopeful to get a place there.

    As I work at the BBC, and thus will have no problem gaining access to BBC Radio Theatre, I've removed my RSVP for someone else.

    1 · September 10, 2013

    • Simon C.

      Great thanks. Please let Tanya Rai know as she is maintaining the BBC list as there seating limits in the theatre.

  • Hally B.

    Something critical came up so I just changed my RSVP status to No. Sorry I'm missing out , but will look for the video(s)

    As a UXr, I'm looking forward to this one A LOT!

    September 3, 2013

  • Carmen B.

    I'll be missing it too! Would you record it?

    August 19, 2013

    • Nic N.

      sure - there'll be video recordings

  • Keji A.

    This line up looks great! The topic feels so relevant to me right now!

    August 19, 2013

  • Jock B.

    I can't BELIEVE I'm missing another one...! Are these going back to Wednesdays?

    August 19, 2013

    • Simon C.

      Yes where we can it will be on Wednesdays.

      August 19, 2013

  • Jess S.

    Event looks fantastic and having seen Nick, Andy and Tom speak before I can vouch it'll be a thoroughly insightful night.

    It's a real shame it clashes with the UXPA event on the same night though as I'm sure it would've been of interest to a lot of members.

  • Gary H.

    This will be my first meeting, but the group gets good reviews from my colleges.

  • Rich C.

    Very topical for us!

  • Jason B.

    Hell yeah :o)
