LJC Events Round Up - Monday 17th January 2011

Here is an update of events happening that may be of interest to developers in London. There is also a summary of the events I went to last week, in case you missed any of them.

Events happening soon

This Tuesday is a great chance to catch up with friends in the community and meet some new people at our fun and friendly social event, which also includes the Graduate Development community, London Scala user group and anyone else who has a little Geek in them :-) The LJC social event has now moved to the very lovely Porterhouse in Covert Garden and if you’ve never been to the social before we are arranging greeters to help you meet people.

The Scala coding dojo is back after the holiday break, with new problems to solve and a fast environment (new PC), so a good chance to start or catch up with your Scala coding skills in a friendly environment. This event is kindly sponsored by Thoughtworks and they provide pizza and drinks.

More speakers are being announced for the JAX London conference in April, including some members of the London Java Community. Congratulations on all those who have had there talks accepted. In case you missed it, the latest copy of the JAX London magazine is out, on the subject of Agile Development. Back issues are available on Scala, Build tools and Eclipse Helios (new IDE version).

The London Ajax community is having an all-day Saturday conference on March 19th, focusing on mobile strategies that don’t break your desktop web. The deadline for submitting talks for the event is January 31.

FOSDEM 2011 starts on the 5th of February in Brussels and you could help the organisers make it another success by joining there army of enthusiastic volunteers sign up!

Summary of Last weeks events

The London Scala user group event was packed out with lots of enthusiastic people there to see “How The Guardian OpenPlatform (mostly) moved from Java to Scala“. Thanks go to Graham Tackley and the rest of the Guardian team for giving a great presentation.

The LJC organisers had a brainstorming session last week and we have lots of ideas for 2011. We still welcome you ideas and feedback on events we are running. Its your community, so get involved in helping us continually improve.

Thank you.
