[AgileScotland] Agile Robot Tournament - Glasgow, May.

Hi Everyone,
And now for a little agile fun ....
Matt Wynne is running an Agile Robot Touranment session at the SPA (agile) conference in late May where:
Small teams of programmers will create robots and send them into battle over a series of tournaments. Which team's strategy and skill will win?
This hands-on session will test how well you can meet that goal by challenging you to code a simple robot that will have to compete in a series of battles. You can continue to refine and upgrade your robot though the tournament. The earlier you release your robot, the sooner you will win some battles and start accruing points.

This is a great chance to have some fun showing off your coding skills as well as your project management strategies!
Matt's kindly offered to run the session locally sometime during the next few weeks.  It takes about 2.5 hours and it's very hands on.
Trouble is, before we run the session, ... we need a room.  Can you help?  It'd ideally be somewhere in Glasgow (although Edinburgh would be okay) and be able to fit 12-20 agile developers and equipment for 2-3 hours during an evening or weekend.  You can see the full details here:
If you can help please email me at  It would be very disappointing to miss this.
