This Sunday I’m off to check out the job fair action at Silicon Milkroundabout, at the Old Truman Brewery, near Brick Lane, London. This is where UK tech startup companies aim to hire developers, designers, testers and all sorts of tech types. According to the FAQ, they’re hiring those with experience from 1 to 40 years, so not just those fresh out of uni.
