I arrived in London on the day of the event. Being English, and having studied in London it's always a pleasure. It's an amazing capital that is constantly changing.
Shoreditch and Old Street are some of my favorite spots. You can't beat Old Street for an Indian, and you can't beat Shoreditch for a Vietnamese. Shoreditch is a hub of hipsters and startups. Moo and Last.Fm being among the big hitters.
After 'selling' 50 invites, we were pretty excited to see who would turn out on a cold Thursday evening. Lina had sorted out a venue at the Bar Music Hall ; the event went really well with a real cross section of the London developer community. With devs from ThreeDeePixel.co.uk , Pandastream.com, intercom.io, blackboxav.co.uk, @mitchellcamp, @adamamosdesignr .
Apologies to J. Pablio Fernadez who was turned away, after a mix up at the bar. We will have better signage and make things clearer next time.
