Hey guys,

For those that haven’t yet met me, I am the new Business Development Executive at RecWorks. I started last month. Though I have only just started with RecWorks I have been attending LJC and GDC events throughout this year, you may well have met me, I would have been the chatty South African girl, generally at the bar.

I was on a technical training course which touched on Java, then went on to promote JAX London before joining RecWorks. Now that I have joined RecWorks I look forward to becoming a more active part of the community and hopefully I will get a chance to meet you all at future events.

If you are interested, you can follow me on twitter at @shrecworks.

Now on with the events for the next few weeks…

Monday 19th November – London Groovy & Grails User Group Meetup

We’re going to be doing some Groovy coding together! We’ll run through some sample problems and see what types of solutions people come up with. This will be a great way to learn Groovy techniques from others and discuss the pros and cons of different approaches.

If you have a particular coding problem that you have dealt with recently and want to find out how others might tackle it, bring it along. The more the merrier!

Presented by John Stevenson (@jr0cket)

Learning a new language is one of the best things a developer can do to broaden their experience and adapt different approaches into their work.  The greater the difference in language principles and syntax, the more you can benefit.  Learning a functional programming language can also help you make more of the current trend of multi-core CPU architecture…

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 London Java Community’s next free event is – The Problem With Women: A Technical Approach on Thursday 1st November at 18:30.

Please see link for details and to sign up – http://www.meetup.com/Londonjavacommunity/events/87367172/

Presented by Trisha Gee.

We all know “there are not enough women in technology.” And we all know that this is a Bad Thing. But for years we’ve been seeing attempts to address the balance, and yet nothing seems to make any difference. It’s time to explore the hypothesis that the approaches we’ve been taking are not only not working but even potentially damaging. This session

• Dissects the problem

• Determines the requirements to be met

• Explores the domain

• Designs solutions

• Suggests methods of testing the success of the designs

Bring along a sense of humor and an open mind.

Who should attend:

Trisha has let us know that the session is suitable for everyone to attend, and is NOT aimed at just women.  It’s an interactive session, so you’ll have opportunities to contribute, it is not a slide-heavy presentation of Trisha’s opinions. The session is also open to graduates/under-graduates.

Bio:

Trisha is a developer in London and a leader in the London Java Community. She’s been working in financial markets for the last 6 years or so, but a fear of boredom and healthy amount of job-hopping before then has given her a wide breadth of experience, in a range of industries, over the 10+ years she’s been a professional developer. Trisha is also involved in the Graduate Developer Community, she believes we shouldn’t all have to make the same mistakes again and again.

Trisha Gee will present “User’s Guide to the Disruptor”. The Disruptor is an open source concurrent programming framework developed by LMAX, a financial exchange based in London. While it is currently fashionable to talk about using languages or frameworks to hide away concurrent programming, the Disruptor provides a way to do quite the opposite – to enable developers to think about how to parallelise their architecture in a straightforward and easy to code fashion. In this presentation, Trisha Gee from LMAX will use her infamous diagrams to demonstrate how to dissect a problem into pieces in such a way that you can identify which parts are can run in parallel and how to manage dependencies between them. She then shows how you can translate this into an implementation using the Disruptor.

This is another chance to see the session given at QCon London and premièred earlier this year at Skillsmatter.
