Java Meetup South-West
Having announced the re-launch of Java Meetup South West last week we have had a great reception and are looking forward to seeing a number of you there. For those that have not signed up or joined the meetup group this is the best place to stay up to date.
We are very happy to announce our first speaker for March’s event.
Name: Michael Gurner
We’ve been working on something exciting over the past weeks here at iO HQ and we’re ready to finally announce it.
Being active in attending and sponsoring meetups in both Bristol and Reading we noticed a particular lack of a specialist Java meetup for the South West. It is then with great pleasure that we wish to announce, that in partnership with a number of local businesses, we will be taking over the running of Java South West Meetup.
The first meeting will be on 20th March and held at the Oracle offices in Bristol.
The HackerX Reading event last Thursday was excellent and it was pleasure to be there! It was started by a brief introduction from Katie Foley at Sap Concur and Gemma Hood from Volume Ltd – impressive speeches and no doubt they’re working on few exciting projects with the latest technologies.
Next in the hot seat is Ben Leach Senior Business Manager. Ben has been with the company since December where he moved from Cornwall to Bristol to add his expertise in recruiting in to private and public health care.
Taking 5 minutes out of his day Ben answered the 5 in 5.
