Dear LSR member,

Happy Friday! For those of you wanting to venture to warmer climates for a break from cold and gloomy London weather, why not attend our Barcelona Drinks and Demo event! Enjoy the sun, have some sangria, and take part in this event brought to you by our amigos in our Barcelona community!

If you are looking to stay local in London, we have a few very exciting upcoming events! Our TechStartupJobs Fair is coming up right around the corner! Yammer are just one of our amazing exhibitors that are recruiting talent. Find out more about who Yammer are looking for here on our blog. If your company would like to recruit some amazing talent from our community, we still have slots available for recruiters, but they are filling up fast! 

Due to the great demand shown at our January Drinks and Demo event, we have decided to host another one in February.  Make sure you check attend our February Drinks and Demo night on 25 February! You can attend and watch in the audience, or you can present by booking a demo slot for your by purchasing "Book confirmed slot ticket" hereon Eventbrite. Then please submit your presentations here. Note there are a limited amount of presenter slots allotted for this event. Presenter's messages will be heard by around 100+ attendees, blogged and pushed through our social media. We will be hosting another Drinks and Demo night soon next month, as well! You can find out more about our last Drinks and Demo night on our blog.

Our Accelerating Cloud and Web Applications event on 8th February is not to be missed! We are inviting some of the best brains in this space to talk to our community in a masterclass on how to best utilise CDN technology to meet demands of your ever growing website. Our keynote speaker will be CDNetworks.

Fashion tech start-up, SalesGossip, a platform that offers members exclusive access to fashion sales, has secured £150,000 in funding through the new Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) with help from our partners Jeffreys Henry. Find out how here how you can too!

I stumbled across this very funny seems that this parody rings true of some startup stereotypes. Obviously, this has been done in good fun and it is very exaggerated. What are your thoughts? Is this a valid video? How can some of these negative stereotypes be avoided?

Would you prefer pizza at our meetups? Or are just crisps sufficient for your food tastes? Since we highly value your opinions, if you haven't already done so, please vote in our poll.

Would you like to attend our awesome events for free? You can by becoming a Techmeetups LSR volunteer! We are always looking for folks to assist us with snapping photos, videotaping, working the door, etc. If you are interested in lending a helping hand, please email [address removed].

That's all y'all, have a great weekend!


Stuff I love that isn't really affordable while bootstrapping:

It's cheaper than renting office space, though...
