Hi all,

Thanks to everyone that made it out on Tuesday night.

We had a good turn out, I would say around 60-70 people came and went through the night. We had more graduates than ever before which was good, although one thing that was pointed out was that it was a little intimidating at times as everyone is already in groups etc. This is something we try really hard to avoid and approach as many people as we can, especially first timers and those that come by themselves. If any of you are interested in coming, feel free to take my personal number and give me a call when you get there. I can introduce you to many people on the night as I tried to do last night. Other than this, I would advise trying to connect with others from this group online in advance so that you know you are meeting some people there.

If I can be any help here, please let me know. We had a few people come along that have been trying the GDC Project Euler challenge although I’m not sure if people came at the right times – always next time!

Special thanks to John, James and Martijn for greeting throughout the night and helping to build such a supportive atmosphere. If anyone is interested in helping out with some greeting in the future please let me know.

Don’t forget to check our latest jobs here although please remember that we have new jobs in every week and some are placed before we advertise them, so for the best positions give Andrew, Kenric or myself a shout and we’ll let you know which roles would be the best match for you.

Sign up to next months Developer Sessions here – http://www.meetup.com/grad-dc/events/17165301/

We are most likely going to base the event around the theme of Java in the Cloud, as we are having two presentations next month on Java/JVM Cloud platforms and tools.

Thanks,
Barry
