* 10 Lessons From 10 Years of Selling Dev Work
What I wish I knew when I started...
by Matthew Hall - Hallway

Ten years ago, Matthew swapped his nice stable dev job for the challenge of starting his own business creating websites and web software, with no formal sales, marketing or business training. Fast forward to now, Matthew has gone from selling cheap websites to one person businesses from his spare room, to building meaningful long term retainer based relationships with sophisticated, high value clients. Matthew will share 10 key lessons learnt on his journey, told from the perspective of a developer. You'll hear actionable tips and insight you can act on today, whether you're a freelancer, contractor or employee.

* pip install disaster-waiting-to-happen
by Lili Kastilio

Open source packages and libraries save us time, money and some much needed sanity. But with every new dependency comes the chance you’re letting in more than you bargained for.
We’ll take a look at the tools and techniques you can use today to make sure you’re not the one responsible for introducing a game ending security vulnerability.

7:45pm - The Space Bar

We'll enjoy some free pizza and drinks from our sponsors whilst we socialize and discuss all things Django.

9pm - The Red Lion

We'll migrate across the road to a room booked in the Red Lion pub, where there is a bar menu available should anyone like to eat.
