Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend and everyone is looking forward to this weekends LJC Open Conference! But before we get to the weekend we have some great events on this week starting with the Developer Session tomorrow night.

Here is a list of a few other community events happening in London over the next two weeks that you may well be interested in attending.

Tuesday 19th November – 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 or new job opportunities 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?

Monday 25th November – Evening Code and Coffee / Craft Beer
Similar to our morning Code and Coffee sessions, there is no strict format, only an opportunity to meet with like minded craftsmen, and discuss or collaborate on whatever you would like to.
Unlike our morning Code and Coffee sessions, you don’t have to get out of bed at some ungodly hour to be here. Just rock on down after work to find other night owls.
We’ll be meeting in “Look mum no hands!”, a laptop friendly cafe/bar that’s open until 10pm, and sells great coffee, good beers, and some tasty food if you make it before 8:30. They also repair bikes and hang them from the ceiling like chandeliers, because why not?

Thursday 28th November – Shut up and take my money – App Monetization made easy
From 19:00 to 21:30 in Campus London
Tim Messerschmidt will present different ways to monetize Android applications including different payment models like subscriptions. After building up common sense he’ll go into the new PayPal Android SDK that helps to realize these models by providing a comfortable wrapper around a rather complex topic called payments.
Closing with some live coding and Q&A this session should be of value to anyone who’s interested in payments in general or earning money with his Android application.
