Update: I’ve caught what I think is a cross between avian flu and sars, with a bit of ebola thrown in. Needless to say I’ll be unable to attend this evening – so Simon B is in charge. Needless to say I’m a little annoyed.

OK, arrangements have been made and we have a new venue for the monthly Django/Rails/Python/Ruby meeting. This time around we’ll have our own space at the Old Bank Of England, which should be much more quiet than Smiths. Like last month, we’ll hopefully be joined by the London Python group, and Django/Rails/Python/Ruby newbies are more than welcome.

Given that we’ll have a better venue for it, I’d also be as keen on people showing demos – hopefully I’ll try and get my colleagues to repeat the demo created for our recent GreenPeace bid. Make sure you leave a comment if you’ll be attending, as I’d like to let the barman know if we’ll drink him out of house and home…

    I’ll be coming. If you can’t tempt Duncan along then I can probably do a demo of the Greenpeace app.

    I’m (relatively) new to this rails malarky, but will be coming along to see what I can see… See you there!

    Joining forces sounds like a good idea – the london Python Mongers will be coming along too, so you’ll be in good company.

    The pub might not be right for a presentation (I’m trying to arrange a more suitible venue for stuff like that) but it would be great if you could come along and let people know what went on.

    Where abouts in the pub are you meeting up will you be up the stairs or in a side room?
    Also how many people do you expect will come?
    Many thanks

    Judging on the previous two meetings, there should be at least 20 of us. And we’ll either have the back room or the balcony, although I’ll be cofirming that today.

    Yeah, I’ll be along – only just realised it was today. Quieter room definitely sounds good. Though I can’t stay as late as normal, this time…

    Just got back home. Mind-melting stuff, as all the geek meetups I’ve been to in London so far have been. Great stuff, Sam. Too bad you were playing Civ4^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H sick.

    πŸ™‚ Are there meet ups happening at the moment – it’s Feb 2006 where I am. I’m getting in to Ruby in a big way and beer with similarly afflicted people would be great!
