A meet-up for programmers, web developers and designers to discuss and showcase their "£5 apps" - lightweight software created by one or two people who take a simple idea and run with it.
The discussion will range from technical (what tools/languages were used during development) to business (building communities, spreading the word, costs and rewards).
Jeremy Keith will be talking about why and how he built Huffduffer (http://huffduffer.com/) - a tool for collecting various audio files together to create your own personal podcast:
"The term Huff-Duff derives from the abbreviation HF/DF. It refers to a technique, widely employed during World War II, to triangulate the position of radio transmissions. I thought that was a suitable term to revive for the practice of finding interesting MP3 files on the web."
After Jeremy, will be demos for the 5K App. For those that do not already know the 5K App is a competition to create applications that use less than 5K (5120 bytes) of code and resources. For more details and links to some example apps, check out the wiki page http://fivepoundapp.com/wiki/5KApp/
Everyone is welcome to enter and there will be a prize of 5120p. Judging for the 5K app has been postponed till a later event.
If you have any question please head over to the £5 app google group http://groups.google.com/group/fivepoundapp
Update: In addition to Jeremy and 5K app demos we'll also have Jon Markwell (http://inuda.com/) talking about Twitter and SocialPlume (http://www.socialplume.com/).
