Another GeekUp took place this week at the B-Lounge in Piccadilly, Manchester.
A couple of interesting presentations were delivered:

The most notable happening of the night was the impromptu creation and organisation of the free GeekUp – Ruby and Rails day scheduled for 30 September. Get ’em while they’re hot, they’re lovely…
