In the spirit of Open Coffee / beer / juice, The Werks is opening up on Friday's for free coworking to developers, writers, creatives, freelancers, nomads and independents.
Paraphrasing Wikipedia: Coworking is a new pattern for working. Often work-at-home professionals, freelancers or frequent travellers end up working in an isolated way. Coworking is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values and are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.
The deal: come along (9:30 onwards), use our space, broadband and facilities and in return; respect the space and the people in it, collaborate and if you found it worthwhile come again.
