Innovation Week and a Walk Around London, Southwark - 8th December 2016

It's SwiftKey's Innovation Week again - a chance to work on stuff that doesn't even have to be work-related for a whole week, fuelled by Japanese, Vietnamese and Ethiopian food as well as the geek stand-by: pizza. On the night where we can crash in the office, Nosher wanders up to Southwark Bridge, and down to the South Bank for a walk across the formerly-known-as Wobbly Bridge to St. Paul's and back.
