Tuesday 18th June - The London Developer Sessions
You absolutely have to get to this event – it’s the best place to come, drink beer and just socialise with other developers. Talk about projects you’re working on, problems your facing, advise a grad or two or just come to discuss anything you like. It’s a great chance to meet first time LJC members as well as seasoned professionals. Ged will be there with a few LJC Book club members. The RecWorks crew will be there to give any career advice or new job opportunities as well as a few Adopt a JSR advocates to help explain how you can get involved. Really what reason do you have not to come along?
