October 2017 – 3rd birthday and lightning talks

Our thanks to everyone who has attended and spoken over the past year. With your support we’ve reached the grand old age of three!

October’s meetup went down well, with excellent talks from Mark and Marc, followed by Trevor’s famous open discussion session. We celebrated with tasty cupcakes, thanks to Ann and the team at The Bakehouse!

A massive thank you to our sponsors – iWeb and The Deskspace Project, run by TopCashback’s Charity (TopCharity).
