We're pleased to announce our next regular event, taking place on Wednesday 20th April, at our new venue in the Freemasons' Hall (close to Holborn, Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road and Temple stations).
The theme this month will be games, and confirmed speakers are Dan Borthwick from Playfish (Electronic Arts) sharing their experiences of scaling, Andy Rogers from Enteraction on 'productising' the social gaming space, Myles Noton from Miniclip on using Facebook APIs, Bart Barden from PopCap talking about using social analytic hooks to attract golden gamers, and Richard Sedley from Loopstatic on the problems with gamification.
We'll also have as usual Iskandar Najmuddin, Technical Director at Syncapse (formerly Nudge) briefing us on the latest platform updates, Dave Nattriss, freelance developer and FDGL secretary and webmaster, running down what's hot on Facebook, and an introduction with Facebook product updates from Todd Chaffee, the chairman of the FDGL committee.
Our events sell out each time within days, so be quick to buy your ticket(s). We'll have beer, wine, juice and pizza, possibly some Facebook swag, and will go for after-drinks in a nearby pub/bar.
Tickets are available at http://fdglapril2011-websiteeventdescription.eventbrite.com - you must buy in advance to guarantee entry on the night. Earlybird tickets are available until Friday before the event, subject to quota.
