There's never been a better time to join our (ir)regular Manchester Drupal Sprints. There are just 28 Beta release blockers in Drupal 8 and with your help we can get a few steps closer. Mike Bell is organising a sprint this Saturday, 26th April to be hosted at CTI Digital in The Northern Quarter.
I am delighted to confirm that VijayaChandran Mani is making a special trip to attend the sprint. Vijay is an inspirational character and his contribution to Drupal 8 should not be underestimated. With 218 commits he ranks 16th highest overall in contributions to Drupal 8.
Please RSVP on meetup.com to attend.
Date: April 26th
Time: 10:00 - 17:00
Location: CTI Digital 47 Newton Street, Manchester M1 1FT.
If you plan to attend please read Mike's blog post to ensure you come equipped ready to help contribute.

Paul Bason, Director at Manchester Metropolitan University gave me a preview of progress on the new Innospace facility which is currently being developed just off Oxford Road, Manchester. Capitalising upon years of success, Innospace is about to enter a new era providing students an inspiring facility in which to create the next generation of startups.
Once complete in late Spring 2014 Innospace will become the home for up to 100 small businesses offering spaces from as little as £10 per week.
