Welcome back everyone to another of Hussey Codings mini blogs.

Today we'll be looking at what's going to be happening during the day at this years Meet Magento UK and throwing in some extra info that you may not be aware of along the way. It is important to point out here that all the information below and more can be found on the Meet Magento UK website and this mini is here to serve as a quick guide to the day.

The Schedule
With 18 known speakers on the card this is one packed line up folks! Hopefully by now you have read all our mini blogs on the seminar speakers and have a better idea of who you would like to go hear, if not don't worry, just click on a name to be taken right to their mini blog.

We're all starting off in the main auditorium and will be staying there for about an hour as we hear Jamie Huskisson open up and pass onto our first 2 keynote speakers Guido Jansen and Ramadass Prabhakar.

There is a 30-40 min break where you can grab some refreshment and have a little nosey around and then at 11.00 is where it all gets fun, especially if you want to be listening to seminars from different tracks. Please do remember, if you are moving between tracks, you'll only have a 5min window to do it in so it may be worth using this time to find your way between the two locations.

At 16:55 - 17:25 we will all be heading back to the main auditorium for Phillip Jackson's closing keynote seminar who will hand back over to Jamie Huskisson to close out the main body of the day. 

After Jamie has closed the day out for us, we are all invited up to the sponsors marketplace located in the upper river room, where there'll be a drinks reception offering both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to celebrate what we're sure will be an amazing event.

But the party doesn't stop there, at 20.00 there is an after party at the Core bar not to far away from the Mermaid where we are invited to mingle, celebrate and chat the night away with the speakers, sponsors, staff and everyone else that attended this years Meet Magento UK. Make sure to hold onto your name badge though as you can't get in without it.

And that ladies and gentlemen is your schedule for the day.
