As part of IBM Code London, the Developer Ecosystems team run weekly meetups (every Monday and Wednesday) for internal and external developers at the IBM Southbank Client Centre.

These meetups include a series of hands-on workshops on a variety of technologies:

  • Cloud Native Development and Containers
  • Internet of Things
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Data Science
  • Blockchain

Each of these tracks are split into several workshops diving deeper in to the subject each time.

Having started early February, our meetup group is now 500+ members and counting. We have had an attendance of 200 developers from across the UK for our meetups, so far.


Here’s some feedback from our members:

“An agreeable evening with good hospitality from IBM, Ross Cruickshank’s introduction to the topic of iot and it’s complexities was excellent, and good quality computer science. A very promising start.” – Brian Linuxing

“Thanks to the IBM team for delivering a great workshop. I liked the content and look forward to the rest of the series.” – Conrad Smith

“Excellent workshop, great intro to containers and micro services and the exercise was well pitched it wasn’t to complex, and gave me quick look at the utility of a cloud platform.” – Conrad Smith

“Thanks for yesterday Sean and the rest of the team. Really enjoyed it!” – Gabriel Morris
