"A friendly monthly meetup for people using Node.js for fun or profit."
LNUG is London's node.js user group. We have been running regular [monthly meetups since September 2011](https://lnug.org/archive.html) and over the years we have hosted talks by local developers and speakers from all over the world.
LNUG is run and organised by London developers. The LNUG commitment is to represent London's diverse community, to welcome the wider global node.js community to our busy city, and to provide a platform for node.js developers - local rising stars, newbies and experts alike - to share their expertise and network.
We are proud be a regular calendar event for locals and to those passing through London - and to be the go-to community event for node.js developers in London. We are grateful to partners and supporters like NearForm that help make it possible to continue to fill that role.
We meet the 4th Wednesday of every month, except December.
LNUG is your local friendly Node.js user group. Inspired by GDCFP day (Global Diversity Call For Papers day). We are running a LNMTPE. (too many acronyms? 🤣 okay here's what we plan to do)
We the LNUG organiser team and volunteers will be here to help you plan, and submit your first Meetup talk.
Everyone is welcome, we love new speakers, old time speakers, people with experience from different industries, and people who have just started.
Anecdotally the best time to talk about something is just as you learn it.
Driven by the roaring 🦁 success of of our first workshop the "Christmas Node Mini Hackathon" we are really excited to try the same thing again.
The format will be.
6.30pm arrive - socialise, food!
7pm kick off - Very short Introduction to LNUG, the format, and lightning talk on what it's like to talk at LNUG
7.15pm - Pair up and start working on a talk proposal.
8.45pm - Get together as a group and share our talk proposals & schedule anybody's proposal for a future LNUG if they want too
9.00pm - Pub - Prince Arthur
Looking forward to seeing you there 😊
Note: This is as well as our monthly meet up not confusion. There will be an event on the 25th of February and we will try get it announced soon
