Hi Guys,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed all the events while I was away. I am back with some more great partner events for the next two weeks starting with a code Dojo tonight. Looking forward to catching up with everyone at an event soon.

Here’s what’s going on – enjoy….

Monday 3rd June – London Code Dojo 23 – Meteor hack

This evening we’ll explore what it takes to produce a simple web app using the Meteor.js framework. Please make sure that you have the framework installed before you arrive on the evening. PLEASE NOTE: I’m not aware of getting Meteor up and running on Windows machines other than in a Linux or OSX VM e.g. VirtualBox.

Monday 3rd June – In The Brain of Jon Pither: Functional Programming in the enterprise

This is a general yet opinionated introductory talk as to why functional programming is a good fit for all institutions, including the heavyweights. It’s based on a couple of case studies of introducing Clojure to an investment bank and an large newspaper group, and this talk may feature some live coding.

Thursday 6th June – Java Development Testing

A technical and interactive presentation on how ‘Development Testing’ is addressing the ever changing landscape of software delivery: high quality, secure applications, limited resources and an ever increasing pressure to launch faster across multiple channels!

Suited to a technical audience from developers, architects, testers to managers, this talk will be presented by Coverity, the global leaders in Development Testing.

Saturday 8th June – Hack the Tower – June 2013 (last one for a few months)

A hack day for the technical communities in London. Its a great chance to build apps with other developers and discover how to get the most out of new technology and practices.  Bring your own projects to work on, or join in with others on their ideas.

In this talk Hakan Raberg delivers a talk on Deuce. Deuce is a re-implementation of Emacs in Clojure. It’s a port of the C core and re-compiles existing Emacs Lisp to Clojure.

Wednesday 12th June – Java Native Interface with Eclipse and Android

Presented by Jeff Lawson.

The Java Native Interface (JNI) enables Java developers to make use of C libraries for high-performance functions such as telephony, sound and graphics. JNI enables developers to re-use their existing C/C++-based software and opens up the opportunity to use the C/C++ libraries developed by the company or organisation they work for.

This event provides broad and detailed coverage of JNI across all platforms and specifically for the Android NDK. This is a how-to presentation with fully working code samples and turn-key instructions for implementing all aspects of JNI listed..

Have a great sunny Monday
