It’s always nice to meet fellow code heads so I was really happy to go along to the January meeting of the London Java Community
There was a real mix of people from students and recent grads to more experienced developers so the conversations in the bar were pretty varied. One pleasant surprise is that the community is the brain child of a recruiter, Barry Cranford, and that runs it for the members and not as his own talent pool. Given my experience with recruiters over the last 10 years or so, finding one that’s not a snake oil salesman (can you tell how much I love agents?) is an achievement.
There are currently about 870 members of this community so if you are a Java programmer and live in London, why not give it a try.
