TIMGroup is proud to sponsor BarCamp London 9.

TIMGroup develops and operates secure, scalable browser-based applications that enable service providers and investors to improve their trading and investment returns – and enhance their relationships across the global financial landscape. Their teams in London, New York, Boston and Hong Kong work with over 500 institutions, from global investment banks to regional niche firms, and over 150 institutional investors, including major hedge funds, traditional money managers and funds of hedge funds.

Their development teams are agile and we work in an office that is almost solid whiteboards. If you'd like to work in the financial sphere but still get to use cutting edge techniques, plus go home at a reasonable hour, visit them at http://www.timgroup.com/careers or talk to one of them at BarCamp.

Our next wonderful sponsor is TechSmith.

TechSmith is the name behind Camtasia Studio and Snagit, two of the most popular screencasting/capture applications for Windows and Mac.

People everywhere use their products to grab images and record content straight off their computer screens to create dynamic presentations and screencasts. With their products, people communicate more effectively and create interest with engaging visuals and sharp videos that grab attention and keep it. TechSmith develops and updates their innovative software every day and plans to continue expanding their existing products to support the Mac platform.

We’d like to thank TechSmith for their continuing support of BarCamps around the world.

Yet another generous sponsor for BarCamp London 9: Potato.

Founded in 2010, Potato is a rapidly-growing creator of complex web apps, working with companies like Google and PayPal from London, Bristol and Amsterdam.

Potato plays home to a multi-disciplined team of webdev experts, tackling projects that range from complex marketing initiatives like Google Engage and massive-scale YouTube channels, to fun, interesting diversions like our getFavicon tool (which serves over 100 req/sec).

We love working in the cloud, and as such develop almost solely using services like Google App Engine. As Potato continues to grow we’re also on the hunt for developers to join our team.
