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.
