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.

Freemasons’ Hall is the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England and the principal meeting place for Masonic Lodges in London. Grand Lodge has been in Great Queen Street since 1775, the present Hall being the third building on the site.
Built between 1927–1932 as a memorial to the Freemasons who died in the First World War, it is one of the finest Art Deco buildings in England, and is now Grade II* listed internally and externally. In addition to the Grand Temple (seating 1700) there are 21 Lodge Rooms, a Library and Museum, Board and Committee Rooms and administrative offices. The building is fully open to the public.
Lodge Room 1 can be found by following the main central corridor from the main reception until the end, and it is on the left past the lifts.
Todd runs MIKAMAI UK, a social media studio building the Facebook applications and Facebook Connect web sites that are making media more social.
As a chairman of Facebook Developer Garage London, he finds speakers and organises the monthly meetings. His personal goal for FDGL is to be a part of a community where the exchange of ideas and social media best practices are warmly embraced.
