Thanks to everyone for coming along to the first meeting (despite the lack of free beer!). Hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Andrew is setting up the mailing list for those that put their names down, so you should hear from him soon. If you missed the meeting but you want to be added to the mailing list, hang on until it’s up and running and I’ll let you know how to register.
Am now open to suggestions for future meetups. Do people fancy having a tech meet? We were envisaging a few short (10-15 mins) talks then discussion and beer. Most of us get enough seminars at work so I want to avoid academic style presentations. I was thinking more along the lines of overviews of useful software / algorithms / other cool bits of tech that people have been using of late. Or maybe something that will spark a decent discussion, like say ‘how the semantic web will impact on bioinformatics’ or ‘what the hell are we going to do with all the next(-next?)-gen sequence data’? All suggestions welcome.
