Saturday August 15th 2009 12:00pm -> ~3:30pm
Because the venue is not amazingly easy to find, we'll meet at Piccadilly station and we'll walk over there (it's about 5minutes on foot).
Meet on the seats between platforms 1 and 2 in the main concourse.
Look for people with laptops and perhaps some funky DFEY signs. :P

From the website:
"How about we give you Google's offices in the heart of London, technology and a tonne of the country's best programmers and hackers to help and teach you along the way? We'll also give you food and drink to keep you going.
If so, and you're aged between 15 and 18, we'd love you to come to our free weekend to see what you can come up with. We think we're all in for a big surprise."
