This is our monthly social gathering which incorporates members of The London Java Community, Graduate Development Communities, London Scala User Group & OSGi Users’ Forum UK. This month we're doing things a bit differently:
In 2008 Andrew Glover wrote an article asking if Clojure of Scala were poised for stardom: http://www.javaworld.... (http://www.javaworld.com/community/node/1720). Two years on we now have two very successful and growing communities running active dojos. Having recently heard that both have been adopted into a variety of companies in London, including large investment banks, it seems a good time to start asking the question again.... this time over a few drinks.... in a bar in Soho....
Therefore for this months pub event we will be asking the question are you Clojure or are you Scala? We will have no formal presentation or slides, but we will be attracting prominent members from each community to come along, so if you've got an opinion on the matter, or you just want to come along and find out what the fuss is about then come along and get involved.
Here is the standard info:
We meet in the evening on the third Tuesday of every month in a private room at the Lvpo bar in Soho http://www.lvpo.co.uk... (http://www.lvpo.co.uk) The event kicks of at 6:30 PM and usually goes on until 11:30 with people coming and going at all times throughout the evening. We usually attract 60 – 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. Free platters of food will be provided.
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.
