A quick update:

Thanks to generous support from the sponsors for Open for Business —
which is being held immediately after Open Source Hardware Camp, on
Monday 28th September — this event is now free to attend.


(ignore the fact it still says £10 on wutheringbytes.com, as this
needs to get updated!)
