This is an "open-source eventing" initiative, done in the interests of industry development. The organisers are involved in the industry, but volunteer their efforts. Any sponsorship goes straight to the audience in attendance!




Free! (You only pay for the food that you order)




  • 27 Dinner Cape Town Planning Committee - we orkanize!
  • Stormhoek - will provide a limited amount of wine to get everyone going :-)
  • Big Cheeze Cake - will provide a yummy cupcake for each attendee.
  • springleap.com - TWO Tshirts for April 27 as we couldn't work out what the comp should be in Feb....and I have to admit - I LEFT THE TSHIRT @ HOME!!!

The Wild Fig:


What a super venue, and the owner is a geek!

Thanks to Eish for blogging about the sudden disappearance of the page and for Marco providing a link to an earlier revision of the page, I thought I'd go in and fix. Hope you don't mind Dave. - Glen
