London Linux/podcaster meet up – Thursday Feb 26th at the Mulberry Bush pub near Waterloo station from 6pm

Wed, 11/02/2015 - 21:58
In celebration of Scott’s visit to the UK, we have decided to organise a meet up. Confirmed attendees so far are Scott Newlon (mintCast), me (mintCast/Linux Luddites), jesse (Linux Luddites) and Matthew Copperwaite (The Dick Turpin Road Show).

The plan is to have a relaxed and informal evening of drinks and conversation. We’ve reserved a booth with a table that should be perfect in a really nice pub on the South Bank, a few minutes from Waterloo Station. Everyone is welcome so please spread the word!

Directions to the Mulberry Bush:

Leave Waterloo via the original main entrance in order to head towards the South Bank. The main entrance is found by turning left after coming through any of the ticket barriers, and is at the far end of the concourse beyond platform 18, on the right next to the lost luggage. Head through the glass doors and down the stone steps, if you find yourself on a bridge you’ve gone the wrong way, come back and look on your left for the glass doors.

Once down the steps head to your left, cross some zebra crossings and generally follow what is likely to be the main crowd towards the traffic lights to cross York Road. The aim is to stroll along Sutton Walk, the pedestrian walkway under the blue lattice bridge, towards the South Bank. Once under the bridge continue straight towards the Royal Festival Hall and you will shortly reach a T-junction with Belvedere road before you actually get to the hall.

Turn right and walk along that road – this is the home straight, except it’s the longest section of the trip! I’m afraid this part isn’t much to look at, you’ll pass the National Theatre, IBM and ITV and just when you think you’ve gone wrong, the Mulberry Bush will appear on your right hand side.


To find the booth that we have reserved, walk to the end of the bar and look to your left.

Hopefully see you there!

Meet Up Thursday 29th January 2015 Ye Olde Cock Tavern from 6.30pm: Pre-FOSDEM Drinks

Thu, 15/01/2015 - 13:36
After a bit of a break and after much interested we've put together a drink/meet up. It is right before FOSDEM so hoping we can get a few people from out-of-town too who might be down to head off on the EuroStar. So do let others know if they're travelling this way.

Feel free to bring laptops and gadgets to show off or get help with, but mainly bring yourself to meet other people with similar interests to your own.

We have booked an area of the ground floor and you should be able to find us pretty easily but we will have a plushy tux just in case.
