    Great to be there for the announcement of SocketStream, and other interesting talks. Thanks again to Songkick, Forward and youDevise for the free beer and pizza. Shame about the real-life troll in the audience, but it wouldn't be a tech party without a bit of sociopathic behaviour.

    Great evening and some really cool talks. As usual I got to meet some really interesting people and heard about some incredible projects people are working on. Worth every minute and looking forward to the next one!
