Hi, tomorrow evening we're having a freelancers meet up in the Caxton Arms
on North Gardens. We'll be there from 8pm until closing. Anyone who's a
freelancer or in a small business is welcome to turn up for a chat or to
tout themselves about. If you fancy going freelance and want some more info
about it, come along and pick our brains.

Turnout is usually between 20 and 25 people, a mixture of web developers,
designers, phone app creators, copywriters, marketers, site hosts, and
people working on their own start ups. We're a very friendly bunch so don't
worry if you've never been to a networking event before, you'll be very
welcome. We have new people coming along all the time so you probably won't
be the only first-timer.

The Caxton are giving us discounts on some of their drinks, so please tell
the bar staff you're with the Farm before you buy any of it. If you want
food, they serve until 9pm.

Notes from last week: Economic situation, A friendly attitude can take you
a long way in business, Dr Martens, The Charity shop world, Gold stories,
Making iPhone apps - you definitely need a Mac!, Keeping work that might
not be what you want but is good given the economic situation, Web apps as
phone apps, Autohotkeys for Windows key remapping, Creating apps for
friends and family to build your portfolio, Ed is smoooth, Firebase,
Coronavirus in Brighton, A visit from an old friend, Diving stories,
Advanced cave diving, Writing the same code in several languages,
Convincing non-technical clients that a technical problem really is a
problem, Advertising yourself when you're somewhat multidisciplinary, Does
programming language choice really matter? And as usual, a lot of things I
forgot to note down.

Directions from Brighton Station: come out of the station and walk straight
down the hill, turn right at the first set of traffic lights, then take the
first left in to North Gardens, the pub is a little way down on the left.

>From Hove & the coast: come to the Clocktower on Queens Road, walk up the
Queens Road hill towards the station, at the third set of traffic lights
(the first being at the Clocktower), turn left up Upper Gloucester Road,
then left again in to North Gardens. The pub is a little way down on the
left. There is a cut through involving alleyways from the Clocktower, but
it's awkward to explain.
