On Wednesday 16th October we'll have an OpenStreetMap pub meet-up at the Blue Posts Pub, Newman St, from 6:30pm. Join us for friendly social beers and chit chat on the subject of OpenStreetMap (contributing/using experienced/beginners, whatever interests you in and around OpenStreetMap!)
Important notes for finding us:
- There are several pubs called Blue Posts! We're at the one on Newman St. It's near Tottenham Court Road tube. ( here on the map: www.openstreetmap.org ).
- Blue posts has an *upstairs* area which is quite well hidden, but it's quite likely we'll get a table upstairs.
Sign up here! ...if you like. Not everyone bothers signing up. It is just a pub after all. You can expect between 5 and 10 people attending.

Brainstorming a Clean, Pragmatic Architecture
Part 1: In the mood for a closing brainstorm? Let’s have a critical review of the major decisions taken in a typical enterprise application architecture and learn to balance pragmatism with design goals. Find out how to do just-in-time design to keep as many use-cases as simple as possible (KISS).

At the other end, over-engineered code can burden the start-up of the development and then end up freezing the code in some rigid ‘a-priori’ design. It’s up to us to strike a balance that will preserve Developer Happiness™. To do that, we should regularly challenge the architecture...

Don’t keep it to yourself - openness and honesty in the workplace
You must have sat in a meeting, listening to someone talk about the next great innovation and how it will revolutionise the way things are done. They’ve discovered the idea, approach, or improvement, that will take the business to the next level and they’re enthusiastically extolling its virtues. However, you’ve seen the flaw in their plan … and you said nothing. You sat there silently, letting them carry on and didn’t make a sound. Why?
There are many reasons why we don’t speak up in situations like this and we'll look at why we don't speak up and the consequences of not doing so.
