UK Excel Dev Conf Venue

D’oh

so I forgot to mention where this magnificent gathering of the great and the good on Jul 12 is occuring!

Or the timings…

The game plan is for a meet and greet between 8:30 and 9:00, at 9:00 the first session will start. The sessions will be about half an hour long with additional time for questions and overruns.

The last scheduled session will finish somewhere between 17:30 and 18:00. The pubs starts at 18:01 prompt, last one in buys a round.

The venue is here. You will see they have wifi etc so if you have to answer emails to pretend you are ‘working from home’ that should be ok. (No guarantees mind, if its anything like the wifi nightmare I’ve been having recently you might be better bringing homing pigeons.)

We will be stopping for tea and coffee, and for dinner (or lunch) of course. If you want to bring cakes and/or biscuits feel free. Ross likes Wagon Wheels, I like all biscuits, even bourbons, no idea which is Charles’ fave, Charles?

We will make the resources available at the event somehow, if you want to bring a laptop to follow along that’s fine, in fact if you want to bring a desktop that’s fine too, as long as it fits on your knees…

Anymore questions, or blindingly obvious oversights let me know.

I will publish a proper timetable in a couple of days when the presenters and schedule have firmed up.

cheers

Simon

    OK, only a couple of stops from Liverpool St from Stansted airport.
    Any recommendations for a budget hotel nearby?
    eg Travelodge were offering deals at £19 recently.

    Charles ia partial to a decent NZ Otago Pinot Noir if I recall correctly.

    >£19, that’s crazy!

    Looking forward to the event, hope there are plenty of wagon wheels!!

    That was the headline price, probably only for somewhere outside Leeds.

    Last I looked, Travelodge Farringdon, a Tube stop away, was offering single rooms at £29.
