The London Java Community’s next free event is – The London Developer Sessions on Tuesday 16th April at 18:30.

Please see link for details and to sign up – http://www.meetup.com/Londonjavacommunity/events/111285372/

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.

Hi Guys,

Its time for another partner email. There are some really great events coming up in the next few weeks, if you are interested in some pizza and coding tonight there is the London Code Dojo. Otherwise there are some great events coming up like the developer session tonight and Devoxx UK next week.

Here’s what’s going on:

Monday 18th March – David Pollak: The Grand Unification *This event has now happened – Please see the link for future events

Yep, @dpp’s got his fingers in a lot of pies… he founded the Lift web framework project, he founded the Hoisted content management project and its commercial side, Telegram, and he founded the Visi language project… but how do these projects fit together?

Come join David for a night of demo of all three projects and a clear description of how they fit together, and you might even see Visi running inside a Lift app..

Tuesday 19th March – 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 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?

Tuesday 19th March – March 2013 – Team Transformation for Continuous Delivery: Chris O’Dell, 7digital

An essential part of Continuous Delivery is collaboration within and between teams. Jez Humble and David Farley believe that cross-functional teams are crucial for CD, because the complexity of the whole system and speed with which changes need to be made mean that the traditional silos of “Ops”, “Release”, “Dev”, etc. are a barrier to effective software delivery..

Thursday 21st March – What do you mean, backwards compatibility?

Presented by Trisha Gee.

The Java driver for MongoDB is the most… mature… of the NoSQL database’s drivers. It was designed without some of the modern Java features we now take for granted (generics, I’m looking at you), and is the sort of API that might be much easier with the eagerly anticipated lambdas in Java 8..

The London Java Community’s next free event is – London Java Community: Meet a Project on Wednesday 20th March at 18:30 at UCL.

Please see link for details and to sign up – http://www.meetup.com/Londonjavacommunity/events/105372892/

· Are you looking to join an existing open source project, but don’t know where to start?

· Are you interested in finding out more about open source software in general?

· Are you looking to start a personal project but don’t know what to base it on?

· Are you interested in trying out some new technologies and wondering how to use them in a personal project?

If the answer is yes, this event could be for you. This is part of the MaP series of events designed to connect open source software projects and potential contributors. It will be in a speed networking style, involving Project Ambassadors speaking to small groups of 3-6 developers. Giving a pitch of an open source or personal project, then answering questions before moving on to another group. The events are intended to answer potential contributors questions around the projects, focussed mainly around starting points.

There are a lot of developers in the industry, from students to experienced developers that are interested to get involved in something in addition to their day time position, but aren’t really sure where to start. There are also a great deal of interesting projects covering everything from popular open source frameworks to the Adopt a JSR program launched by the LJC. Many of these projects rely on support/enthusiasm from developers and are keen to get more enthusiastic people involved. Not to mention that most candidates that get involved in personal projects seem to escalate their careers, salaries, day rates and passion for the industry.

You will get a chance to meet project leads for 3-6 different projects and discuss the differences between them and their experience with open source development and their experiences in general.
