It is hard to comprehend the events that happened at the political heart of our country yesterday. Our proud capital attacked, five lives lost and 40 people injured. Its unimaginable.

Spending a few days in London at the Cloud Expo Europe with the UKFast team, and at various meetings, the buzz of the capital is infectious. Thousands of people attended the expo and came by the UKFast stand. Theres something special about...
