Software Wouldn’t Be Software Without WANdisco…

…and Snooker Wouldn’t be Snooker Without the Crucible!

WANdisco are massive fans of Sheffield – not only is our award winning uberSVN product made in Sheffield (and has the Mark to prove it!) but we name all of our uberSVN releases after Sheffield venues to show our support for the local area.

This is a particularly exciting month for Sheffield, as the 2012 World Snooker Championships are being held at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield – just a five minute walk from the WANdisco office!

As well as being home to the the most important event in professional snooker, the Crucible is a Grade II listed building that underwent a £15 million refurbishment a few years ago. We’re so excited to see the World Snooker Championship returning to one of Sheffield’s top venues, that we just had to get in on the action (and into the official programme!)

We hope everyone who’s lucky enough to have tickets to the championship has a great time – and don’t forget to pick up your official programme!
