PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE TO TWITTER HQ.
In honour of the giving season, our December meetup will be on open source!
We have 3 amazing speakers who will be speaking and answering your questions on all things open source across a range of technologies and points of view:
Trisha Gee (http://trishagee.com/), all the way from Sevilla in Spain, is an expert in Java high performance systems, is passionate about enabling developer productivity and currently works for MongoDB, an open-source document database, and the leading NoSQL database. She will be giving us insight into what it's like working within and maintaining an open source project.
Oli Evans, Co-Founder of TABLEFLIP (http://tableflip.io/) and organiser of the NodeBots and Meteor London meetups (as well as being a mentor at NodeSchool and many other things), is also an avid contributor to open source projects. He'll be talking about his experience as a contributor and especially how you can contribute at any level. He will for sure be talking about the fantastic 24 pull requests (http://24pullrequests.com/) initiative.
Ilona, Co-Founder & MD of the Moove Agency (http://www.mooveagency.com/) will be talking about the benefits and challenges of building a business ontop of an open source project (in this case, Wordpress). She'll also be talking about all the ways you can get involved in open source aside from contributing code.
Let us know if there's anything specific you'd like our illustrious speakers to cover and we look forward to seeing you there!
Please keep your RSVP up to date so we know how much food to order.
