#HNLondon, November 2013

The bad news is that this will be the last meetup of 2013 :(

The good news is that we have some amazing talks lined up for you and tons of beer and pizza :)

The rough plan is below, though we do occasionally run late despite our best efforts

18:30 - Beers and pizza
19:00 - Sponsors and introductions
19:15 - Alick Varma - Building a bank for children
19:35 - Alexandros Marinos - Building a PaaS for Devices with Docker and JavaScript
19:55 - Break
20:15 - Matt Jones (Facebook) - After watching this talk, you'll never look at passwords the same again
20:35 - Rodolfo Rosini - (Storybricks) - Signal to Noise: Bullshit, More Bullshit and Very Depressing Statistics
21:15 - pub 

If any of you are interested in mobile development, I also recently launched a cross platform mobile show 'n tell meetup called Mobilise. The next event will be on Tuesday, 19th Nov, you can find out more info and sign up at .

HNLondon is proudly supported by:

Stripe is the easiest way to accept card payments on your website or mobile app. Prior to Stripe, businesses had to spend days communicating with sales reps and filling out complicated forms to begin transacting online. With Stripe, you can create the payment experience you want in minutes, and Stripe will take care of all the heavy lifting, including security and daily transfers to your bank account. Stripe powers payments thousands of businesses of every size—from start-ups to blue chip companies. Get started at

Secret Sales: When you finish a feature, can you release it with confidence right away, or do you have to wait days or weeks to find out what users think? Secretsales uses continuous delivery to get super-rapid feedback on all the features we build for our busy, successful online shopping site. In addition, we are a team of generalising specialists, ready at the drop of a hat to refine an algorithm, write a tricky integration test, tune a SQL query, or discuss feature nuances with a product manager. We hold regular retrospectives to improve our working environment and lightning talks to share cool ideas whether work-related or not. Write to our CTO Squirrel at [masked] to find out more about jobs at Secretsales.

    I enjoyed all the talks, especially the last one. As always - well organized, without bad surprises. I really liked that Alick Varma repeated the questions to the microphone! We all should do that.
