Code Mesh, the Alternative Programming Conference, focuses on promoting useful non-mainstream technologies to the software industry. The underlying theme is "the right tool for the job", as opposed to automatically choosing the tool at hand. By bringing together users and inventors of different languages and technologies (new and old), speakers will get the opportunity to inspire, to share experience, and to increase insight. Through presentations and case studies, we aim to raise awareness and extend the knowledge of all participants, mainstream and non-mainstream users alike.

Great Cumberland Pl, London W1H 7DL
Just off busy Oxford Street, this luxury hotel is 2 minutes’ walk away from Hyde Park.
To reach The Cumberland Hotel by road…
From the Marble Arch monument, take the first left down Great Cumberland Place: you’ll find the entrance to The Cumberland Hotel on the left-hand side, just before you reach Marble Arch Tube station. APCOA parking is available nearby on Bryanston Street at an additional charge. To programme your sat-nav, use the postcode W1H 7DL.
For guests arriving in London by rail…
London Paddington station is 1.0 mile away.
London Underground: Take the Central line to Marble Arch Station. Turn right out of the station, then almost immediately right again into Great Cumberland Place; The Cumberland Hotel will be on your right.
To reach The Cumberland Hotel from the airport…
If you’re flying into London City Airport, The Cumberland Hotel is 11 miles away: take the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Bank Station, then the Central line to Marble Arch. From London Heathrow, we recommend the Heathrow Express: this runs direct from the airport to London Paddington in just 15 minutes (20 from Terminal 5) and there’s a train every quarter of an hour. The Gatwick Express runs a similar service into London Victoria. From either terminus, you can take the Underground to Marble Arch: The Cumberland Hotel is then about a minute’s walk away.
