It was like The Exorcist at my house on Saturday - kid picked up this vomitting bug going around...

dharrigan09:11:48

I think the washing machine ran non-stop that day

flefik09:11:06

oh dear. at least their head didn’t spin?

dharrigan09:11:21

no, but the washing machine did...

dharrigan09:11:52

After finally getting my kick-the-tyres react with babel with webpack app running, I felt like my head was spinning too!

otfrom10:11:57

sounds like there are lots of fun things going round atm

yogidevbear10:11:31

That's an interesting definition of "fun" @otfrom 😂

acron11:11:09

Speaking of fun...morning @jasonbell

jasonbell11:11:51

lol thank you @acron 🙂

yogidevbear14:11:16

Is this a thing? Does this impact ClojureX?

yogidevbear14:11:52

@jr0cket do you know anything about this?

jasonbell14:11:27

This is sad news indeed.

yogidevbear14:11:24

I hope all the good people working at SkillsMatter are okay ❤️

poor Wendy and team

otfrom14:11:56

this is such a blow for the tech community in London and the UK

practicalli-john14:11:22

Its very sad if SkillsMatter cannot continue. Its not that surprising to me though. I have seen a lot of training and community activities trailing off over the last couple of years, even in London. Still a lot happening in mainland Europe though.

jasonbell14:11:38

Is it confirmed from SM that all future events are cancelled?

practicalli-john14:11:56

I am dubious about any statements at present, especially as the website of the administrators is not working (possibly why the link from @otfrom was an archive site)

otfrom14:11:30

the source was lrug saying they needed a new venue for their meetup tonight

practicalli-john14:11:05

I will inquire with my friends at SkillsMatter and see what their understanding of the situation is. SkillsMatter often cancel non-commercial meetups, so will need to find out more.

practicalli-john15:11:44

ReSolve need some work done on their website, its terribly slow

practicalli-john15:11:33

I am afraid this means that ClojureX is cancelled for the foreseeable future. I am trying to see if there is any contact for speakers and attendees, but in these situations it is unlikely any refunds will be available. If I hear anything more I will share straight away.

Wes Hall15:11:23

That utterly sucks 😞. Honestly, time for one or two of the "big dick" tech firms to recognise that organisations like SM are the people that are training their talent pool and stump up some grants.

maleghast16:11:12
