That sounds a great idea.
I don't come to London since too much time now, so I'd finally have a very good reason to come :)
I am also looking forward to meet the other guys of the Drools team in person.
Count with me for that.. I always willing to do this kind of hackatons
and long coding nights..
Mark is it time to create a Drools User Group in London? a Drools Lab maybe?
