Meetings

 

We meet as a group for technical/social meetings on the THIRD MONDAY of each month (except Bank Holidays). All meetings are held in the centre of Rugby and are free to attend.

We are always on the look out for speakers to present on interesting topics, so if you feel that you (or someone you know) could offer a talk, please get in touch!

Next Meeting: Monday 20th February 2017

Meeting to take place at OpusVL, Drury House, Drury Lane, Rugby, CV21 3DE, starting at 20:00.

Technical Meetings

 

Covering technical topics and featuring live demonstrations, our technical meetings take place in the offices of OpusVL (OpusVL, Drury House, Drury Lane, Rugby, CV21 3DE [map]).

Meetings start at 20:00 and typically last a couple of hours. For an idea of the topics we feature please check the meetings archive.

We try to have a technical presentation of some sort each month. If a speaker is covering a topic in depth, we usually dedicate the whole meeting to the topic. Alternatively, we may have an evening of "Lightning Talks" in which speakers give quick 10-15 minutes talks on various topics. Lightning talks let us cover several different topics during a meeting and we think it makes meetings even more interesting for those that attend, as there is always something new to learn about.

Social Meetings

 

Our separate social meetings are currently on hiatus. But don't worry, we frequently go to the pub (usually the Rupert Brooke on Castle Street) at the end of our technical meetings!
