Update: See the NorthCast of this event by the NorthCrew boys.

This month we'll be moving away from our regular venue and venturing up to Old Broadcasting House for an exciting GeekUp special.

It's the Yahoo User Interface Library and in the interests of broadening your technological horizons, we've kidnapped Christian Heilmann.

Christian Heilmann. He works for Yahoo! UK as trainer and web architect and oversees code quality for the big purple Y! in Europe and Asia. He's also written a book or two and numerous articles on Javascript and web technologies for A List Apart, Ajaxian, Thinkvitamin and Digital Web.

That not enough for you? Well he's a member of the Web Standards Project's DOM Scripting Task Force and if we hadn't hornswoggled him then you'd probably find Chris speaking at a reputable conference like @media ajax or Ajax World.

What about the beer!?
We've arranged for a real ale bar for the night also serving the usual lager, wine and a few nibbles.

A little help from our friends
GeekUp Leeds isn't normally sponsored but this month's special wouldn't be possible without: River Networks, Rattle Research, BlueSkyPR and Met:Space

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.
