Please see link for details and to sign up – http://www.meetup.com/grad-dc/events/137350842/

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.

We are back to The Slug and Lettuce this month: 19/20 Hanover Street, London http://www.slugandlettuce.co.uk/hanover_street/. We have had some fantastic feedback from those who have attended the event at this venue before and will be holding this month’s event in the same great location. The venue has a nicely sized function room with its own private bar, there are some great offers on beer, there is free wi-fi and it’s easy to move around and chat to lots of people. Most importantly it is a friendly and relaxed environment where developers can get together to chat and network.

The event will kick off at 6:30 PM and usually goes on until around 11:30 with members coming and going at all times throughout the evening. We usually attract 50 – 70 members so it is a lively event in which members, both junior and senior, can connect in a relaxed atmosphere and set the development world to rights.

Barry or another RecWorks team member will be onsite so if anyone is looking for free recruitment advice it’s a great chance to come along for a chat.

The London Java Community and Graduate Developer Community’s next free event is – So You Want To Become A Java Contractor? on Wednesday 31st July at 18:30.

Please see link for details and to sign up – http://www.meetup.com/grad-dc/events/127398992/

We are often asked by developers about contracting; what the market is like, when to take the first steps and how it differs from permanent opportunities. Contracting can be a great career option but can be very different from working as a permanent employee. We have set up the RecWorks Contractor Network (RCN), the idea being people can network and share advice on their experiences through a common mailing list. It also means we can get a really good cross section on what is happening in the contract market. We have invited members of the RCN to share their experience on working as a contractor.
This event is suitable for:

– Experienced developers considering one day taking a step into contracting

– Students that are interested to find out more about the difference between permanent and contractors

– Experienced contractors keen to share opinions, tips and advice on working as a contractor
The event will run with a panel in a ‘fishbowl’ style. If you’re unfamiliar with fishbowl events, four to five chairs will be arranged in an inner circle (or a panel at the front of the room), this is the fishbowl. The remaining chairs will be arranged in concentric circles outside the fishbowl. A few participants will be selected to fill the fishbowl, while the rest of the group sit on the chairs outside the fishbowl. One chair will be left empty, any member of the audience can, at any time, occupy the empty chair and join the fishbowl. When this happens, an existing member of the fishbowl must voluntarily leave the fishbowl and free a chair. The discussion continues with participants frequently entering and leaving the fishbowl. The audience outside the fishbowl listen in on the discussion.
