Main Meeting #9: Everything Mobile Plus a Little More


You may well remember Danilo Poccia from AWS, from our Lambda evening in July. Well, he's a mobile apps specialist, and he'll be giving two talks on his specialist subjects this evening - one on Mobile and the other on IOT! Plus we have a third talk from a familiar face on Amazons voice controlled service - Alexa

Our hosts are our dear friends at Metail, once again.

To get here:

Metail's based at Janus House, which wraps around and above a Maplin store. The entrance is to the right of Maplin

By car:

Park at Queen Anne's Car Park on Gonville Place, walk across Parker's Piece opposite, towards the University Arms (big hotel, lots of scaffolding and building works at the moment), and then along St Andrew's St. in the same direction.

Or park at any Park and Ride car park, take the bus into town, and get off at Drummer Street. Walk down Emmanuel St. to St Andrew's St., turn left, and it's about 200yds on the left.

By train:

To Cambridge Station, then walk down Station Road to Hill's Road junction. Turn right, and it's about a mile's walk. Or catch the Citi 1, Citi 3 or Citi 8 (or 1A) bus from the Station, towards town - the bus stops are to the left, as you exit the station. Get off when you see a Maplin on the right!

By bus:

Too many bus routes serve the area to cover here: quite a lot of them stop just outside. Check the Cambridge Buses ( website for details.
