Hey guys,

We are back! Apologies for the long hiatus but RecWorks has had a wedding and a whole host of holidays. Events have been a bit slow too but things are definitely starting to pick up again. So without further ado – here’s whats happening over the next two weeks:

Wednesday 3rd October: Meet A Mentor – Queen Mary, University of London – Graduate only event *EVENT CLOSED – JOIN THE GDC FOR NEXT EVENT INFORMATION*

Have you always wondered what you want to do when you graduate?
Are you worried about all the talk of grads finding it hard to find work and what it will mean for you?
Do you want to know the difference between working in a bank, a gaming company or a startup?
What technology should you specialise in? Java, Ruby or any of the other countless programming languages?

Now is the chance to find out. You may well have heard the buzz about the Meet a Mentor event – this is the next in a series of events open to all students. Also please get in touch if you are interested in becoming a mentor: email Anji at ac at recworks.co.uk

Tuesday 9th October: In The Brain of Rob Harrop: Effective REST Security

If you’re designing a REST API that requires user identification, then this talk will give you the insights you need to be effective.

Wednesday 10th October: Getting there from here: Java, Scala and Service Orientation at the Guardian

Technical leaders within the Guardian will provide a snapshot in thelife of the codebase of one of the UK’s most popular news websites. Each day www.guardian.co.uk produces hundreds of articles, pictures, videos and podcasts that are read and enjoyed by millions of people. Currently we are in the unique place of having a hybrid Scala and Java codebase and being in the middle of a migration from a monolith architecture to one that is more service-orientated..

That’s everything for now – I’ll be back in two weeks to bring you some more partner events.

If you would like to add your group/events to this list then please get in touch with myself or Barry – we’re always happy to help🙂

See you in a couple of weeks!
