Ruby to solve homelessness and the refugee crises

Dan Hough says:

Social impact startup Beam (named by LinkedIn as one of the UK’s Top 15 Startups) has built pioneering products for government, social care workers - and homeless people and refugees themselves. Together, Beam is proving that tech can solve these problems for good. Hear about how a small Engineering team has built software that has transformed the lives of thousands of homeless people and refugees. And hear about the fun, meaning and challenge in Tech for Good.

Once we're done with the talks we'll leave the venue (after doing our best to help tidy up) and find a local pub to visit so we can eat, drink, and discuss the talks we've just heard.

Of course, even though this is the socialising part and seems more informal, please remember that still we consider it to be a part of the meeting and covered by our code of conduct.

Venue & Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees.

The venue has a hard limit of 90 people. If you register and realise you can't come, please use eventbrite to give up your place so someone else can come in your place. We might be able to let in people on the night who haven't registered, but we can't guarantee it.
