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 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 month's theme: Development War Stories.
We've all heard of those horror stories on software development projects. The performance bug that couldn't be tracked down, the dreaded MUMPs programming language and the 16,000 line Java source file to name a few. But there's always a bright side to these disaster stories and that is we can learn not to repeat the mistakes of history.
This month at the Developer Sessions we'll be listing war stories by community members up on a wall for us to discuss and learn from, lest we forget!
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.
