[LRUG] April meeting

Hi Zoulfia,

I've just written up the meeting details on the LRUG website:


(Note that we're on Tuesday 3rd, not Wednesday 4th).

It's at the Skills Matter office on Goswell Road (
http://skillsmatter.com/location-details/design-architecture/484/96) and
you need to register with them on their website:


The meeting runs from 6:30pm to about 8pm.  We then go to a local pub to
continue in a more social setting (some folk go for dinner before heading
to the pub).

The meeting is normally a short bit of housekeeping from me (when the next
meeting is, etc...).  Then the floor is open for 5mins or so for the rest
of the group to make announcements; usually it's "we're hiring", but it can
be anything the group might find interesting; new conferences, cfp's
etc....  Then we settle into our scheduled agenda.  A traditional meeting
would be 2 talks in 40minute slots, but sometimes we change things around.
 E.g. last month we had a panel discussion and the Feb meeting was 8
lightning talks (at about 7minutes each).

The agenda isn't fixed for this meeting yet, but hopefully it will be soon.

It's a pretty welcoming bunch, so please do come along!
