Hi guys,

It was good to catch up with so many people at Devoxx. If you managed to get there too I’m sure you’ll agree there was plenty to think about and to talk about – and not just best lap times for Mario Kart at our stand!

Even though the World Cup is in full swing, there are plenty of events coming up over the next two weeks in and around London and the details are listed below.

Wednesday 18th June
Code & Coffee (South-East London)
Code & Coffee is a cool meeting for those who like coffee and love writing code. The idea is simple. Just come along and you may find other developers writing some code before going to work while drinking some coffee.

Climate modelling software hack evening
Climate modelling software is at the core of climate change science and so in the last couple of months I’ve been researching projects that we can volunteer on. I’ve found three that we can help out with and you’ll be glad to know you won’t have to know a single line of Fortran! (the language the actual core modelling software is usually written in).
At this meetup we’ll start hacking on these projects..

The Missing Link of Agile – Improve People First, Systems Next
Undergraduates/Graduates – In this event we will learn more about feedback. Feedback is used everyday in the work environment to maintain good relationship with other people, resolve conflicts, grow yourself and others. There are two important properties of feedback: it is always subjective and it always involves emotions. Taking those two into consideration we will explore effective methods of giving feedback and managing the emotions while giving/receiving feedback.
Presentation using Prezi + exercises.

Evening Code and Coffee / Craft Beer
Every fortnight, we meet for coffee, code, craft beer, and some great food.
This is a great opportunity to:
• meet other cool software craftsmen
• work on pet or open source projects
• pair with someone else on whatever you like (katas, koans, etc)
• ask someone to join or help you with your own project
• have a face-to-face meeting with your mentor or mentee
• have a nice chat over coffee and beer
We’ll be meeting in “Look mum no hands!”, a laptop friendly cafe/bar that’s open until 10pm, and sells great coffee, excellent beers, and some tasty food. They also repair bikes and hang them from the ceiling like chandeliers, because why not? http://www.lookmumnohands.com/

Weaving OpenFlow Together with LOOM – Marc Sugiyama
LINC and LOOM are an open source OpenFlow software switch and controller. This talk focuses on LOOM, the controller. We’ll start with where LOOM fits into the network architecture, the goals of the project, and its design direction. Then we’ll dive into the details of how to use the LOOM libraries to write your own OpenFlow controllers.
This talk will introduce LOOM and the LOOM libraries to anyone interested in experimenting with the OpenFlow protocol to control OpenFlow switches.

Friends Of The Earth Open Source Mapping Tool Code Hack Evening
This meetup is going to be a code hacking evening and so, unlike the previous two FotE meetups, we are inviting only coders who have worked with one of the following technologies:-
– Python
– Django
– AngularJS
– Mapping software
We’re going to try to do two one-hour mini-sprints to get some functionality or bugs worked on, but of course it should still be a fairly relaxed affair (hopefully not like going back to the office for more punishment!) with free pizza in the break and followed by a trip to the local.

Whitechapel CoderDojo
CoderDojo Whitechapel is coming in July, and beyond.
We’re holding our first Dojo on Saturday 5th July from 2 to 5pm. The Coder Dojo will then continue on every first Saturday of the month.
At the first session, you will build your very own website!
Learn how to put pictures, videos, and so much more, on a website with HTML, make it look good with CSS and then place it up on the web for the world to see 🙂
Don’t worry if you’ve never made a website before, all you will need to do is bring a laptop and have fun. There will be mentors to assist you at every point.
And if you have built a website before, then the mentors will be able to take your knowledge to the next level. We want you to bring along your programming or code projects for our special “Show & Tell” session, so if you’ve been working on something cool, bring it along and share it with the other ninja’s
All ages are welcome (our main audience is 8-14 years old though everyone is invited), however, all young people must be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 18 for the entire time.
The location is also the home to Microsoft Ventures, Barclays TechStars and TechCity UK and lots of young technology entrepreneurs; so there will be some great people to learn with.
The event is completely free, though numbers are limited. You will need to register and get a ticket before the CoderDojo.
Be cool,
