If we stick to the second Monday of the month for the next meeting, the
date is 12 June. Benj, are you able to make that day? If so, shoot me a
little summary & bio and I'll get Wendy to put that up on the LRUG
meeting page (http://skillsmatter.com/london-ruby-ug).

I'm pleased to see people looking for meeting content with a hands-on
practical side. When I was involved with the Ruby NYC group
presentations were mostly made by people showing stuff they'd been
playing with - which is a good incentive for people to play as they
know they've got a group to share ideas with.

More laptops, more demos, more prog'ing at the meetings sounds like fun
to me!
