Also, we have a 10% discount for the next Lean Startup Machine in London on 3rd Feb, for the first 10 people booking. Lean Startup Machine is a competitive weekend workshop where you will learn how to apply Lean Startup techniques in the real world. Join a team and launch a startup--not by writing code--but by validating and iterating your key hypotheses quickly. Bring your team, come alone to pitch an idea, or work on someone else's.
The first 10 members of Hacker News London to purchase tickets get a 10% discount! Just e-mail [masked]. (http://theleanstartup...)
The Twitter hashtag for the event is #HNLondon
The London Hacker News Meetup is sponsored by these generous companies:
LShift is a hi-tech software development company. It is small but, we like to think, close to perfectly formed. Our company is home to some of the best developers in the UK – not only in our opinion, but in the opinion of a number of international blue chip companies who use our development and research skills.
LShift is looking for senior developers. The company is built around the idea of having a team of highly skilled developers who combine a breadth and depth of outlook and experience. We do not recruit people to slot into a particular technical role with a particular set of tools. Instead we recruit all-rounders, familiar with a broad range of technologies and environments who have a good appreciation of all aspects of software engineering. www.lshift.net
Twilio, the cloud communications company, provides software developers with simple APIs that enable them to programmatically make and receive phone calls and text messages. Twilio is simple, powerful, and with pay-as-you-go pricing you pay for only what you use. Learn more at Twilio.com

Forward Technology's upcoming form analytics service Inform can help you answer all these questions and more.

Come and talk to us at the HackerNews meet up to find out more or visit http://inform.forward... for beta access and updates.
Songkick.com is a Y Combinator startup (s2007) making it easy to track your favourite bands so you never miss them live. Some of you may recall some early Hacker News meetups we ran out of our flat in Spitalfields back in 2007-2008 (here are some blurry pictures ). We're pleased as punch to be getting involved in Dmitri and Ben's new meetup : it's excellent to have London HN-ers meeting together regularly again..!
