The Ribots are sponsoring us with Festive Alcohol and (fingers crossed) Xmas Cakery.

  • Apologies to Planet London Python readers, I mistagged this as 'python'. Whilst two of the talks might use Python, I don't have confirmation that they do and I didn't mean to add the 'python' tag - sorry! You're all more than welcome, of course...
