The London Developer Sessions

This is our monthly social gathering, which incorporates members of The London Java Community and Graduate Developer Communities. This is an informal social evening most of the evening will be spent having ad-hoc informal discussions in small groups.

We are using the same venue as last month again this month, The Knights Templar, 95 Chancery Lane, Off Carey Street, Holborn, London WC2A 1DT - http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/pubs/the-knights-templar-chancery-lane. The Knights Templar is part of the Wetherspoon's chain and we have  negotiated the use of their function room with its own private bar for the evening. The pub is well know for its relaxed environment and for its real ales.

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.

Barry or another RecWorks team member will be onsite so if anyone is looking for free recruitment advice it's a great chance to come along for a chat.

    It was a wonderful session and the book launch added a little spice to the occasion. I had a great time as an official "greeter". Seems I have a knack for it. More please!

    The email mentioned a copy of the book as a giveaway. Does this imply it is free?

      We will be giving away a number of copies of the book (exact number still tbd, depends on what the publisher can ship to us in time) but it won't be a free book for everyone, sadly.

      Thank you. I shall not try to take advantage as it would only be fair to allow someone who requires the book for work to have first priority.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
