The Big Move
Did you hear, we’ve moved to The Tapestry, just off London Road. We’re open for business, but while we’re settling in we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.
We now have air-conditioning (and heating, but that’s less important at the moment 🙂 in Room 29 and the events space! We’ve also set up the desks in Room 29 and people have started moving in to work from there. We’re still working on the sound-proofing and flooring, but as that’s taking a bit longer than expected, we figured we should move in and start using it properly anyway!
The DoES Liverpool to-do list is stored in the issues of our Somebody Should repository on github. Head over there if there’s something you’d like to report, or if you want to help out fixing things.

- Blinds for Dinky.
