The London Developer Sessions - Let's talk about Concurrency

This is our monthly social gathering, which incorporates members of The London Java Community and Graduate Development Communities. This is an informal social evening most of the evening will be spent having ad-hoc informal discussions in small groups. We usually keep to a them for the event and this month it will be based around Concurrency. Following on from last months event in which we saw record numbers of signups - We will have some members in attendance with a variety of experience on different aspects of Concurrency in Java so it's a great chance to come along and discuss any problems you've been having, or solutions you've found within Concurrency. It will all be in an informal discussion setting with no prearranged presentations.

We have booked out the top floor of the Porterhouse in Covent Garden http://www.porterhous..., the venue is beautiful and they have beers from all over the world.

The event will kick off at 6:30 PM and usually goes on until around 11:30 with members coming and going at all times throughout the evening. We usually attract 50 – 70 members so it is a lively event in which members, both junior and senior, can connect in a relaxed atmosphere and set the development world to rights.

This is a chance to come along and meet, and chat, with other members of the London Technical Community. It is a great chance to meet other developers and has attracted members of all levels, I'll also be onsite so if anyone is looking for free recruitment advice it's a great chance to come along for a chat.

    Another night of great discussions (and a few beers) with lots of interesting people. I met many new faces and talked about all sorts of things from concurrency, kanban, Git and distributed version control. Thanks to everyone that came.

    Was a good social & networking gathering.
    I had the misconception that there would be more emphasis on Concurrency including someone leading a discussion on it. That wasn't the case, but my expectation may have been misplaced.
    Still enjoyed it :-)

    Hey guys you can look down the right and see that already there are a number of people that have been working in concurrent environments. If anyone would like to comment further on their experience please do!
