    Location was excellent - easy to get to, even for people out of London & more than comfortable. Talks were great, I wish my colleagues came. Met great like minded & enthusiastic people who are also trying to bridge the gap between testers, developers & system admins. Came away with a page of ideas & new technologies to try.

    Great work @davehunt. Look forward to the next meetup.
