More about the meeting

Come along with your coffee! Arrive early if you can -- like a "real" meeting -- to help us start on time. In fact, feel free to join from 11:15 onwards to say hello.

You’ll be able to send us your questions and comments and network with other participants during the meeting.

And, although the meeting is nominally an hour, we often stay behind for 15 minutes more discussion and networking, just like a normal meeting -- all are welcome!

(All that's missing is the biscuits!)
