My answer to What are the best tech networking events / meetups / conferences in London? on Quora

Our startup Lanyrd helps people discover professional events, and we have a very healthy userbase in London. If you sign in to http://lanyrd.com/ with your Twitter account we’ll show you events the people you follow are tracking or plan to attend—knowing that someone you respect plans to spend the time to go to an event is a very strong form of recommendation. You can also browse our full list of events in London here: http://lanyrd.com/places/london/

I’m personally fond of the Hacker News meetup (around once a month in the Old Street area, http://lanyrd.com/series/hnlondon/ ). In terms of conferences, the Future of Web Apps (disclaimer: I’m speaking) is a good bet.
