Our Guest Speakers are Dave Cross and Mark Fowler, who have graciously offered to do a couple of talks each. If you're a regular attendee of London.pm technical meetings, then you will likely be familiar with them, but always worth a second hearing. For anyone who is interested in coming along, details and directions can found on the Birmingham.pm Technical Meetings page. I shall be giving a talk, along with another Birmingham.pm regular, so there will be something fresh to listen to.
On another note, I have been quiet of late, which is very unlike me, but I seem to take much longer to do any coding at home than I did at work. When I finally get my business idea off the ground, I will definitely be looking at other premises. Less distractions.
This unemployed lark is a real bummer though. Dwindling resources has meant having to miss the chance to see Peter Gabriel, Ministry and Yes. Though on a plus point I have won tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in Manchester, with hotel accomadation and meal thrown in for good measure
