This is our monthly social gathering, which incorporates members of The London Java Community and Graduate Developer Communities. This is an informal social evening most of the evening will be spent having ad-hoc informal discussions in small groups. For this month only we are holding the Developer Session in conjunction with the JAX London community night.

JAX London opens its doors for a Community Night on Tuesday, October 16th. If you missed out on the full conference, we’d still love to see you at the Community Night, we is completely FREE to attend!

Join us from 5.45pm for a drinks reception before we commence evening with an evening Keynote presentation from Martijn Verburg and Kirk Pepperdine. After the evening Keynote, the bar will be re-opened and attendees can choose to join experts from across the Java ecosystem as they host tables to informally discuss key topics in the sector.

This is your chance to get up close and personal with a host of industry rock stars, network with JAX London speakers and other members of the Java community. This will be informal and a great chance for you to get up close and personal with guys not always in the London scene.
