Hey All,

    Opentech Schedule: http://ukuug.org/opentech/schedule
    Opentech Registration: http://ukuug.org/opentech/registration

The updated programme is now up (typos and all, I'm sure
you'll find them). Wiith a couple of talks remaining to be
confirmed. Dorkbot are now on the schedule - yay! - and
itoWorld will be talking about some of their really nice
animations and visualisations, and how they build them.

If you've not booked your ticket yet, you can do so in about 30
seconds right now. If you have, why not remind your friends
about #opentech on facebook or twitter (you know two of them
will have forgotten :)

If you're not sure whether you've booked a ticket, everyone
who has (and isn't speaking) just got a very similar email
to this, but with a different subject line and above
paragraph :)

   one of your friendly OpenTech Organisers :)

   * Want to help out? *

   OpenTech is organised by volunteers and we are now looking
   for volunteers to help out on the day. In return for free
   early entry and our eternal gratitude, we're in need of a
   few people to show up a bit earlier and help us set the
   venue up, and a few people to help with the audio recordings.

   If you're interested, or have random other questions, email
   us on opentech at ukuug.org

   One thing we're doing this year is giving everyone related
   to OpenTech the chance to post their projects on a page,
   and say what help they need. Offline or on, whether you're
   after tech people or just more helpers, you can ask the
   OpenTech community to help out what matters to you:


   Final programme may be subject to alteration. OpenTech is a
   not for profit event open to everyone so please help spread
   the word online and offline. Thanks for reading!
