Next Tuesday 15th October sees the first ever #Be2campOxon at Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot.  This event has been brewing in my head for a few years and I was finally persuaded by Martin Brown back in March to set a date.  Seven months seemed a generous time-scale when we agreed the date but it has come round alarmingly fast. 


I have to admit that part of my motivation is a bit selfish as some of the best events I've ever attended have been run my Be2camp and I wanted one right on my doorstep. Didcot is home to the wonderful Cornerstone Arts centre designed by William Ellis Architects who also worked on the Baltic Centre and it struck me as an ideal venue for a Be2camp event.


















I'm really pleased with the speakers we have got lined up - you can find more detail on the booking page but here is a quick summary

Could this be the way to get data to site, or for monitoring remote locations?
