I'm in Burnham-on-Crouch, but I work in Witham so Braintree is pretty good for me. I'd be very interested. Plus I have access to a digital projector (no HDMI, but it does have RCA video) which might be useful.

I live in Grays, so a bit of a trek and I know didly squat about these modern programming languages - last coding was on a ZX Spectrum and BBC Micro so that gives a clue as to my age!

I am keen to learn python and more about Linux so if you guys are happy to bear with my I would be interested in joining.

There are a few in Colchester, Maybe we should just nominate a pub one evening and see who turns up.
Any nice pubs in Wivenhoe ? (I used to live there when I was a student).
