 Hi everyone.

This is on Wednesday evening this week. 19:30 start as usual. Talk 
begins around 20:30. Social before and after.

Zoom details:


Meeting ID: 812 4372 3483
Passcode: 7WhRcOY6Up

You don't need a Zoom account to be able to join and I understand you 
can join Zoom calls with just a web browser, without installing the Zoom 

I'm happy to see that the number of signed up attendees on Meetup.com 
has risen to 57 at the time of writing and I expect it to pass at least 
the 60 mark, if not 70 before the event. I'd really like people to sign 
up at Meetup.com if you're planning to attend so we know whether we're 
going to need to pay for an extra Zoom large meeting addon to 
accommodate all the attendees:


Nevertheless, please put your names below if you plan to attend but 
can't/won't sign up on via Meetup.com.



See you there everyone :)
