As usual we are slightly late confirming the talks. As promised our headline speaker for the evening is Shed Simove, who will no doubt entertain and amaze you with stories of his exploits. In addition, we have the pleasure of introducing the following speakers:

Nik Silver - Creating brilliant teams
Azmat - Design hacks for mobile. How to get #1 in the App Store.
Avi Patchava - Online connections to offline relationships
Andrew Nesbit - Form Analytics with inForm

There are still plenty of places left, please RSVP if you would like to come along.

If you are into the whole Twitter thing, the hashtag for tonight is #HNLondon.

We also need one or two volunteers to collect the pizzas from Rosebury Avenue in Clekernwell and taxi them to the venue around 18:00. If you have a bit of time spare and can help, please let know. My email is [masked] .

Also, our old friends at Skills Matter are running a one day workshop on HMTL5 Websockets, which might be of interest to some of you. The event is on 30th November and is £95 for the day. More details and sign up info are here:
