About Event

Welcome to the seventh edition of our London FoC meetup!

This is a chance for folks who are part of the Future of Coding community ( to talk shop over a few drinks. If you're new to the space you can learn more on the FoC website, or by listening to the podcast.

We're meeting at Newspeak House in Shoreditch. There will be beer, wine, non-alcoholic drinks, snacks, and pizza (normal + vegan) provided.

We have some sponsors to help cover the cost of drinks and food, but we are mostly community funded. Please consider donating £5-10 (or more!) to our open collective fund.

We'll have community members give a mix of longer talks (~20 min), demos, and lightning talks. If you would like to demo, fill in this airtable form! Demos/talks can be anything from showing off your side project, to philosophical musings on naming conventions, to a speed tour though a piece of computing history that we can all learn from.

Afterward the talks we'll have ample time to eat pizza, have a few drinks, ask speakers questions, and hangout. If you are working on something and want feedback, bring your laptop! You can either demo in an open slot, or show people during hangout time.

Rough schedule:
5-5:30pm Arrive, get drinks, hang out
5:30-6:30 First round of speakers
6:30-7 Pizza & drinks break
7-7:30pm Second round of speakers
7:30 onwards – more drinks, ask speakers questions, hangout as long as you like

We'll wrap up by 9:30pm. If folks want to keep chatting we can migrate to a nearby pub.
