It was promoted on the other forum, I think they're at the stage where they're looking for people to get involved with the api and get some liquidity going so maybe target the more techy types for now.

I didn't wacth it myself as I don't think it's got much to offer me but they're going to be posting a recording soon I think, so I might ffwd through it.

...the main selling point seemed to be that attendees got a free mug so I'm not sure the offering on it's own was much of a draw.

They're still sniffing around, they seem to have wormed their way into the open source project, paying for drinks nights etc. I see the advantage for them but don't know what the motivation is for Liam, presumably a big backhander.

I usually just skim through the other forum because I'm not a python/flümine guy so most of it isn't useful to me......but I don't use BA much, so this place isn't exactly a good fit either.

What's the 'other forum' Shaun? Thanks.

Looks pretty much the same as oddschecker but coming to the market 10 years later, and I don't get why they're recruiting the python guys it all makes no sense - unless its not actually the bookies standing the bets but rather individuals

-£6.2m doesn't seem to bad really for a company in this phase.

I and many others don’t even know it exists and we work in the same industry, to lose that much when I’ve seen no advertising is shocking
