A word from our sponsors

I couldn’t make it along to the meet-up on Friday but I hear that it went well and the coffee money was spent in record time. Thanks to everyone who went along and to our sponsors, Birmingham City University, for their support.

Jon Hickman and Paul Bradshaw from BCU chose not to address the masses at the Coffee Lounge, but instead recorded a short video:
