UK Smalltalk User Group Meeting - Monday, March 29th

Hi all,

after a brief hiatus, we're ready to resume our monthly meetings. We decided to move the nominal date of our meeting to the last Monday of the month, to minimize clashes with other user group meetings.

The next UK STUG meeting will then be on Monday, March 29th. As usual, we'll meet at the Counting House, close to Bank station, from 18:30 onwards.

We have no set agenda for the meeting - just beer and nosh with your fellow Smalltalkers. On the other hand, the Counting House now has free wifi, so why not bring your laptop and show us your latest code?

See you there!
