When geeks come out to play...

Geek in the Park logo

Organised by Trevor Morris, and presented by the Multipack, next month (August 27th) sees the first annual Geek in the Park:

Geek in the Park is a day-long get together, picnic, and discussion for anyone to do with the Internet (developers, designers, programmers… whatever!). This is a very informal affair so family and friends are very much welcome to attend too.

The big day is taking place in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Split in to two main events, Geek in the Park starts with The Picnic during the day, followed by The Discussion in the evening. The event starts on Sunday at noon and everything should wrap up by around 11pm.

The Discussion will focus around Patrick H. Lauke and Bruce Lawson who will both be discussing ‘Where the rubber meets the road: Web Accessibility and Pragmatism’.

Sounds good doesn’t it! Better still, the whole shaboddle is totally free!

Needless to say I’ll be there, soaking up the sun during the day (fingers crossed) and getting my geek on in the evening - and hopefully winning a Friends of Ed book or two (again, fingers crossed)!

who did the graphics for this site? They're awesome. Why am I asking you? Oh well, it'll build up your comment count.

I did the initial design, but that's far removed from what's there today - for that we should thank Andy Higgs

You can see the evolution of the site in this thread over at the multipack forums.
