Announcing our October meet up - at our new home at Reading's Walkabout.

We're currently finalizing details with two speakers (on the topics of Clean Code and Database race conditions), but we'll update you when we can announce them!


Kim Francis with (Mostly) Clean Code

Code smells, and how to recognize them


Daniel Craigie with Dr. Deadlock or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the Database

The story of a database deadlock in production and how it was solved.



There is parking in an NCP carpark on Garrard Street just below Thames Tower, but this is very expensive. The venue is a five or ten minute walk from the Oracle car parks, which are much more reasonable, and the train station car park which is less so.


Food and Drink

Food and drink are available from the Walkabout, which is open prior to the event. The bar in our space will also be run throughout.
