Hi, thanks for visiting!

We meet monthly on the third Thursday of every month in London.

I'd like to welcome this month's speaker at the London Web Meet-up on 18th September Matt Gifford ( Matt is owner and primary primate at his own development consultancy company, monkehWorks Ltd. His work primarily focuses on building mobile apps and ColdFusion development, although he's such a geek he enjoys writing in a variety of languages. He's a published author and presents at conferences and user groups on a variety of topics. As an Adobe Community Professional and Adobe User Group manager, Matt is a keen proponent for community resources and sharing knowledge. He is the author of “Object-Oriented Programming in ColdFusion" and "PhoneGap Mobile Application Development Cookbook" and also contributes articles and tutorials to international industry magazines. Matt can be reached at his site ( ( or @coldfumonkeh on Twitter.

Matt will join us with his session:

'Get Grulping with JavaScript Task Runners'


In this session Matt will introduce the attendees to Grunt and Gulp, two incredibly powerful JavaScript task runners. It will help clarify what they are, why you need them and how you could use them in your projects, including how to introduce them into your development workflow and cycle.

You will learn

* What Gulp and Grunt are

* Running Tasks – how they can be used

* Plugins, extensions and enhancements

* Building them into your workflow

* The differences between the two task runners

NOTE: We'll be meeting from 7:30pm and kicking off the sessions at 7:45pm which leaves plenty of time to have a drink and a chat in the bar afterwards.

We're very happy to welcome this month's sponsors:
