I'm not impressed by their initial list of venues (how many devs are in Bath?!?) and have emailed to encourage them to come to the North of England ASAP.

Their initial list is Oxford, Dundee, Nottingham, Bath, Cardiff, Bournemouth, Leamington Spa, Edinburgh.
That's a big gap between Nottingham and Edinburgh!
