A meet-up for programmers, web developers and designers to discuss and showcase their “£5 apps” - lightweight software created by one or two people who take a simple idea and run with it.

The discussion will range from technical (what tools/languages were used during development) to business (building communities, spreading the word, costs and rewards).

For us the £5 App has been the best regular event in digital Brighton. It provides an environment which balances wonderfully the worlds of hardcore technology development and inspiring stories of entrepreneurship.

The £5 App has inspired us to build things that we can share with the community in Brighton, having the deadline of a £5 App to present at was a driving force pushing us to release the now popular

I love the sense of buzz in the £5 App meetings. Everyone there is either doing something - building a business or making an application - or there to learn how to start doing it themselves. It's got the best intersection of bright, motivated and helpful people of any event in Sussex.

£5 apps is a fantastic expression of the DIY Digital Community: real people talking candidly about their experiences launching products and businesses. Whether I've been speaking or attending, it's always been great fun and I've never left one of the evenings without something interesting to think about :)

Well it appears we're moving to a "seasonal" time-scale for the £5app. We're still a little busy, but are hoping we'll manage to keep things semi-regular.

So to awaken us fully into spring we've got three talks (and possibly more TBC):

Sign-up on Lanyrd to let us know if you want to attend.
