Hi guys,

I hope you are enjoying the hot weather and managing to miss the thunderstorms!

Here’s a round up of the events that are taking place in and around London over the next couple of weeks that I’m sure you’ll want to check out.

The list includes details of the Whitechapel CoderDojo coding event for kids. We are always keen to do what we can to promote quality events for children, as they will be the developers of the future. If you don’t have kids yourself who would be interested, please mention the event to friends and family so as many budding developers as possible get the chance to find out what coding is all about.

Tuesday 22nd July
Speaking Out: A workshop for public speaking in tech
Public speaking is a great opportunity for people to raise their professional profile and employment opportunities.

If you’ve thought about giving talks at your workplace, local user group or even international developer conferences but just need a little support to get started then you should come along to this event..
