The UK's premier web 2.0 event returns to London, but for the first time at its new home in ExCel, and at a new date in the calendar, October 3-5th.
Featuring three new tracks in order to provide the very best, relevant content in the main areas of web development today, two programme chairs have been elected to help put together a scintillating list of speakers and topics.
