<entry-title>UK Meetup April 2011</entry-title>

One of several microformats Microformats events.


2011-03-12 from 19:30 to 23:00
Greene Room,
The Cricketers Pub, Black Lion Street, Brighton, BN1 1ND, UK

The meetup is going part social and part workshop to brainstorm the input micorformat ideas. It’s open to everyone who's interested in microformats and semantic mark-up. If you are just want to join us for the social element that's cool the current plan is keep the brainstorming and discussion part to about an hour at the beginning of the evening.

As most people who said they who attended came from the Brighton area, we have organised the event in Brighton, but it would be really nice to see as many people as possible. Brighton is only 50 mins from London by train and 4 leave Brighton every hour until 23:37.

planning - idea

It has been a while since we had a microformats meet-up in the UK. The idea is for an event that is part social and part workshop to brainstorm the input micorformat ideas. As Tantek is in the UK between the 11-16 of April this would seem the best time to hold the event.

Please help us by adding your preferences to this page so we can organise the best time and place.

planning - what venue

These are venues we have used in the past, I am not sure if they still have the right layout or atmosphere for a meeting. Please add other venues that you think maybe good for the event. They need to be central and near good transport links?
