Silicon Milkroundabout

I attended the inaugural Silicon Milkroundabout event along with hundreds of developers to get to know some of the startups in London’s technology scene.

This event reminded me of career fairs at Georgia Tech, with hundreds of companies seeking to recruit the brightest students. Career fairs were very brutal in the US, students would wear suits, engineers from companies would ask technical questions right on the spot, even make you write code on a piece of paper while standing up in line.

London’s event was more relaxed, people weren’t handing out resumes, it was in a bar, and people talked over beer. It was very well organized, with free drinks and a booklet containing information about all attending companies.

Congratulations to the Songkick team for their leadership in organizing this event, it was a huge success and London’s tech community owes you a big one!
