13 Brunswick Square
Hove, England BN3 1EH

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).

Rupert Loman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rupert_Loman) of EuroGamer (http://www.eurogamer.net/) talks about how:

... we turned a self-funded garage-based enterprise into a company competing (nearly) head to head with established media businesses by harnessing the power of community and collaborations.

This is the first £5app of the new year, after a brief post-xmas holiday.

If you're short of a venue, then No. 13 is available again.


Cheers Danny. We were just getting round to sorting that out, so we'll most likely take you up on that offer.


We'll also probably have a short piece from Rosie on ProjectBrighton and a piece from Dom on 'Why you should tell people about your work, ideas, dreams and aspirations' (or '10 big ideas that could have gotten you $2m+ in funding but someone else did them first… sh#t’).
And the usual beer and cake, obviously :-)


Sorry, I can no longer make it.


Bugger. Going to have to drop out. Too little time in the week.
