We’re pleased to announce that we have rescheduled our November event to take place on Wednesday 19th January, at our regular TechHub venue (right by Old Street station) – previously purchased tickets are still valid. Tickets are available at http://fdgljanuary2011.eventbrite.com/ – you must buy in advance to guarantee entry on the night. A limited amount of earlybird tickets are available until Friday 14th.
The theme as before will be the media, and confirmed speakers include Cathy Ma from IPC Media (Marie Claire, NME and Wallpaper magazines) talking about using the Open Graph for publishers, Tom McDonnell from Monterosa talking about working on Channel 4’s Million Pound Drop show with Facebook, Jack Riley from The Independent newspaper talking about how they’ve integrated their website with Facebook, Hermione Way from Newspepper about utilising video online, and Marc Delurgio from Kyte talking about their streaming video platform.
We’ll also have as usual Iskandar Najmuddin, Technical Director at Syncapse (formerly Nudge) briefing us on the latest platform updates, Dave Nattriss, a freelance developer and FDGL secretary and webmaster, running down what’s hot on Facebook, and an introduction from Todd Chaffee, the new chairman of the FDGL committee.
The last few month’s events each sold out within days, so be quick. We’ll have beer, pizza, some Facebook T-shirts, and will go for after-drinks in a local bar TBA.
As always we are grateful for the sponsorship of our events – thanks to our regular sponsors Facebook, Intel, Logicode, Adknowledge, Conversocial, Joyent and Syncapse, and our media partner Newspepper.
