Bring-A-Box 12th Nov 2011

Sirius Corporation plc

We have regular sessions on the second Saturday of each month. Our meeting this month is at Sirius Corporation in Addlestone, Surrey. Thanks to Andrew Wilkins for hosting us this month.

New members are very welcome. We're not a cliquey bunch, so you won't feel out of place! Usually between 10 and 30 people come along.

Bring a 'box', bring a notebook, bring anything that might run Linux or just bring yourself and enjoy socialising/learning/teaching or simply chilling out!

Venue Rules

Please don't touch any of Sirius's equipment, e.g. LCD screens - check with the host if you're not sure.

Please ensure that you tidy up after yourself (and others) so that we leave the venue in good order and will be invited back!
