Facebook Developer Garage London July 2011

1 week 10 hours ago

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, 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:

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 - 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.
