The agenda is open to you!  If you have any ideas for talks, we’re especially keen to hear from you.

We are also looking for people to do talks of around 15-25 mins. Please contact via Eventbrite if you are interested.

The meetups will continue on the first Thursday of the month.

Hope to see you soon.
