Update - Tim Waters will be showing us the results of this weekend's (Sat 15th and Sun 16th Sept) big event: the Leeds Open Street Map Mapping Party. Hopefully see some of you there - looking forward to seeing Leeds on the map!

Also at GeekUp this month, Phil Winstanley will be heading over the Pennines to provide us with a MIX Mastication - a quick tour of what was announced @ MIX, what it means, and why you should care, even if you hate Microsoft.

In true tradition we will honour our turn-up-on-the-night-with-a-20:20-slot, where it's left up to the GeekUp crowd to decide on the night who gets to talk. The 20:20 format is outlined on the GeekUp wiki but it's essentially 20 slides, with 20 seconds per slide.

What is GeekUp?
GeekUp is a community of web designers, web developers, and other tech-minded folk from the North. Our socials take place once a month in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester and are always a lively place to share ideas and spread a little knowledge.

Who can attend GeekUp?
While the focus for GeekUp is predominately web related anybody involved in the technology industry is more than welcome to attend a GeekUp. The monthly events are free, we just ask that you buy your own beer.

Tim Waters

Cheers Tim, this would be really great! Really looking forward to seeing the results. See you there this weekend with my gps, not sure if to map by bike, foot or car yet.


Hey Deb - I won't be able to make it this's Ramadan and I need to eat and pray at sunset...around 7:20pm. I'll be there next month though :)


Sorry to hear you can't make it! Hope Ramadan is going ok, hopefully see you next month, or at OpenCoffee.
