Thanks for checking this out!
We're looking to setup a new meetup in Birmingham aimed at people like us;
We're a group of startup techies based in Birmingham, applying the latest tools & techniques to interesting problems; these include the latest web frameworks, No-Sql databases, functional programming toolsets, cloud infrastructure and anything else new and shiny.
We're looking for more people like us to share knowledge with.
Let us know what type event you'd like to see - we're currently thinking either "Hacker news" with a broad range of hacker type topics, or "Functional programming" focused.
Whisk have also agreed to sponsor the event, providing a space to hold the event, pizza, drinks and maybe some prizes.
