    We have a sponsor for tonight's meeting. Rob Turner from Flexadata will be giving us a short talk on his company's new JS widget framework (named: "Widgy") to make building interactive web UIs for products less painful. Their plan is to open-source Widgy and hopefully kick-start some development. Their website URL is: They are currently setting up the open source site at:

    Flexadata are a small software company focussed on providing tools and accelerators to make life easier and more interesting for developers. Rob will briefly introduce Flexadata, present a quick demo pointing at their open source site and make a call for contributors. Their user-base would be any developer who wants to create a rich web UI without too much effort/hassle and developers who are good at JavaScript/HTML/CSS as potential contributors.

    What does all this mean? Its means Rob will be buying us food and beer after the lightning talks. That's what.
