We're pleased to announce our next regular event, taking place on Wednesday 20th July, at our regular venue in the Freemasons' Hall (close to Holborn, Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road and Temple stations). For July only, the route into Lodge Room 1 will be different, so look out for signs on your way into the building.
The theme for this month is entrepreneurship and starting up, and confirmed speakers are Jakub Nesetril, co-founder of API services company apiary.io, with his start-up accelerator survival guide, Sam Clark, head of apps agency Conjure, covering lessons learnt from building branded apps, and John Haggis from Sheridan Solicitors telling us how lawyers can help set up your company and ensure your app is legal. Simon Cross, a plaform partner engineer at Facebook, will also tell us about cross-platform authentication.
Accel Partners, the venture capital firm behind companies like Facebook, MindCandy, Rovio and Kayak, will be hosting Office Hours at this month's event. Office Hours gives entrepreneurs/developers/technology evangelists the chance to ask Accel personnel relevant questions, ranging from getting feedback on an idea to general business/market advice. There will be four 15 minute slots open to anyone attending our main event, so if you're interested in this specifically, please sign up here: http://ohr.me/nLfBKP
As usual there will be 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 other Facebook news from Todd Chaffee, FDGL's chairman.
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 at O'Neills across the road for those that want to wind down afterwards.
Tickets are available at http://fdgljuly2011.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.
We'll be taking our annual summer break in August, so if you miss out on or can't make this one, we look forward to seeing you in September.
As always we are grateful for the sponsorship of our events - thanks to our regular sponsors Facebook, Accel Partners, Gamaroff Digital, Adknowledge, Syncapse, Conversocial and Logicode, and our media partner Newspepper. If your organisation is interested in sponsoring us, please e-mail for more information.

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.
