Zombies, robots, and hackers!

At Skills Matter we are still catching our breath from this week’s inaugural Scala eXchange –with nearly 20 speakers and almost 300 people over a period of two days, it was a fantastic start. Please see the previous post for links to all the talks recorded.

With zombies and hackers making the news in recent days, Skills Matter is the place to be next week. So what is coming up next week?

To put it briefly: a lot. We have a talk on Less CSS and the father of Mockito on agile zombie projects for the Groovy Grails User Group, the creator of the Robot Framework beaming in from his home in Krakow, Mocking and Testing with the London Android User Group, Pro Spring author Jan Machacek on Spring Roo. That’s just first part of the week!

On Thursday, things get really interesting with the Hacker News London Meetup Group and the OSGi™ Users’ Forum UK. Get more details and follow the links below to sign up. And whoever can send me the best picture of a zombie robot hacker, I will think of a suitable prize fir you…

There’s no time to waste — sign up, book now, and get over to Skills Matter!
