I propose a trip to see Bletchley Park during JuliaCON
This is the home of codebreaking in the UK during the Second World War. Brave Polish mathematicians turned over their expertise to the British, enablign the building of ‘bombes’ which were mechanical computers used to decrypy Enigma. The Colossus machine was built there to work on the Lorenz ciphers and was worked on by Alan Turing.
I propose we book a group tour of http://www.tnmoc.org/
Bletchley Park is a one hour train journey from UCL.
I think Saturday 11th is a good day - but of course clashes with the Hackathon.
Will people be staying till Sunday?
Alternatively Monday 6th is the day before the conference (though TNMOC is closed that day)
If people are arriving over the weekend that could be a good day?
As an aside, if anyone is travelling with companions who intend to do some sightseeing in London, my wife is a volunteer guide at the Tate Gallery. If you have anyone who is interested in a visit there let me know.
