    Definitely want to attend, was an excellent day last year. LeFrog is no more, but it has re-opened as something almost as good, and the meals at the Black Bull next door are decent and if you get the right time, two for one as well!

    I like food.

    I'm provisionally coming - depends on how I feel post-op from my hernia repair and transport arrangements...

    Out of curiosity, Anyone know if that local hotel has a strict 12 booking in time? Or is it "from" 12. Just know some hotels have stupid "after X hours we can resell room" rubbish. And will have to drive up after work so will be late arrival :P

    If you are there early, there is a nice pub next door
    Edited to add: You shouldn't have a problem, we've had lots of people book in here in the past and turn up after work etc. It won't be an issue.

    The barcode is a QR code and there is a nice app from EventBrite which allows you to register attendees by scanning it in.

    It is due to finish at 17:00 at the latest. It depends how much you want to add to the 'Ask the admins' session we traditionally hold at the end. If it's anything like the Microsoft conf in Reading which was mainly attended by those in the sounth who never make it up north and didn't know the format, we got off lightly that day
    Up here we have Simon and Bossman to contend with!!
    I would recommend you stay overnight on teh second night as it is actually quite a social occasion and we all get to sit down to a meal together and with some of the speakers/exhibitors. This also goes for Wednesday night which is a more informal affair, but we admins shall also be present. In short, it's good fun in the evenings and the hotel bar is open LATE

    Late bar!? Sold! Guess the answer is, Book Wed-Fri off work, Wed/Thurs hotel. Then no rushing etc!

    Sounds like it'll be a good few days :P
