The London Developer Sessions

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 back to The Slug and Lettuce this month: 19/20 Hanover Street, London We have had some fantastic feedback from those who have attended the event at this venue before and will be holding this month's event in the same great location. The venue has a nicely sized function room with its own private bar, there are some great offers on beer, there is free wi-fi and it's easy to move around and chat to lots of people. Most importantly it is a friendly and relaxed environment where developers can get together to chat and network.

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.

Thanks to Atlassian for their generous sponsorship of the event. Please check out these offers from them.

    @Mahesh - this is a free event, no pass or fee is required. There is a challenge of finding us in the pub. The function room is upstairs and the stairs start in the middle of the pub. If you stand at the bar downstairs, the staircase is directly behind you.

    Almost all our events are free to join in. About the only event we charge for is our yearly conference in November. That charge is partially to ensure people who sign up come along, as we have limited capacity.
