Great to have so many meetups planned! I wish I could attend all of them! I'll go for the Homebrew coding and London ROUGOL ones for sure; will have to see for anything else.

Have updated the first post to remove last weekend's ABug in Halifax and to note that the ABug Cambridge meet is now fully booked.

As a heads up, the next Northern meet is pencilled in for 18-20 November (Bolton) and an East Midlands meet in Leicester is due to debut on 27-29 January 2017, but please wait for the respective organisers (sydney and sixxdogg_uk) to confirm these events/dates.
