Sheffield Uni CS Reunion 2019 – update

This post is a little aside from my regular output to help me connect with former friends and associates from “back in the day”.

I studied Computer Science at Sheffield University from 1986 – 1989, this is a plea to my former coursemates and buddies to reconnect and join me in Sheffield for the 30-year reunion on September 7th. I’d love to recreate this picture from Maths and Computer Science Graduation Day, June 1989. Some names below where known…

Other folks I’d like to catch up with include Andy Day, Ed Simons, Adam Briggs, John McGinty and many more.

If you are named here then please get in touch via Twitter @tech_magpie, find me on Facebook or comment below and tell me if you’re going on 7th Sep. Cheers.
