BBQ Friday at the Mendeley London offices

We work hard at Mendeley, so we also take the opportunity, every now and then, to relax and enjoy each other’s company with a little good food and drink. Mainly because we want to meet more folks interested in changing the world, starting with how research is done, but also partly because we need some fresh blood in the foosball league, we thought we’d invite London-based developers to join us this Friday. So developers, if you’re in London this weekend, please join us at the Mendeley HQ for BBQ Friday. Space is limited so please RVSP to zuzana@mendeley.com, including a CV, to let us know if you plan on coming. We’ll have the rooptop deck open and Mendeley staff will be on hand for conversation and perhaps a bit of foosball – if you think you’re up to the challenge.

Friday June 24th, 2011, 6 – 9pm

With best wishes, and great anticipation,

Join us for Open Office Friday!

Open Office Friday is coming up once again!

If you don’t remember what this is – it’s when we open up our office to friends and users of Mendeley and have a bit of a party. Please drop by as we’d love to meet you! What you think shapes what we are, so we’re especially eager to hear what you think of Mendeley and the direction in which we’re headed. If you have a pet peeve, here’s your chance to air it! Mainly though, we’re here to have a fun time.

Here’s what Nathan had to say about the last Open Office Friday:

The Mendeley-ers have a rare vibe that mixes the sharp thinking of a leading tech start-up with “young researcher out to change the world” enthusiasm. There was no shortage of beverages, pizza and friendly faces keen to talk about the trials and tribulations of research. It was also great as place to bounce around ideas with lots of cross-discipline discussion that is hard to find elsewhere.

I would heartily recommend the experience to anyone who needs to kick open their PhD bubble a bit or who wants to meet the folks who making world-leading steps into cracking Vannevar Bush’s half-century-old challenge [of making more accessible our bewildering store of knowledge].

— Nathan Eng, Engineering Design PhD student, University of Cambridge

So come for pizza, drinks, foosball.. or just to hang out and chat about your research! To RSVP, simply comment on this post or email office@mendeley.com.
