A long-awaited heatwave in September was the perfect night for Godel Technologies to hold another annual summer social BBQ. This year’s event took place at the rooftop terrace at 30 Euston Square in London.

There was no better way to host Godel’s in-person event which involved attendees from some of the most innovative businesses in the UK. Serving delicious food, a rooftop BBQ and ‘save the planet’ beers, the evening consisted of insightful keynote speakers, live music, and great networking talks.

Advancing the Tech

The evening’s keynote speakers came together to deliver some interesting talks about advancing tech, overcoming team challenges, providing takeaways to last long after the event.

The evening kickstarted with a fantastic talk from Rija Javed, Engineering Leader at Facebook. Rija supports the team at Facebook to help them succeed and build groundbreaking technology at scale, to bring people and communities closer together. She spoke about the challenges many companies face when it comes to developing new platforms whilst maintaining existing ones, reflecting “You can’t predict the future, but you can learn from the past”.

This was followed by an excellent speech from Alex McFayden, EVP of Technology, and Head of Technology Evangelism at Benlabs, who gave an insightful talk about how creators, brands, and developers are leveraging AI. Our final speaker was Godel’s very own Vitali Pukhalski, R&D manager at Godel Technologies, who spoke about how Godel keeps up with the latest technologies.

When the talks had finished, the rooftop BBQ was lit and guests topped up on drinks as people began to network with some widening discussions about advancing tech, alongside some fantastic live music from the night’s entertainment.

The event was a scorcher – and the weather wasn’t bad either, as it gave the perfect opportunity to strengthen relationships with existing clients as well as speak to some new faces we hope to become familiar in the future. 

“Thanks to the Godel team for the invite to the Summer BBQ. The evening brought great and entertaining speakers, good food and interesting people combined with some unexpected summer weather delivered a memorable event.” 

Many thanks to all our guests who supported and attended the Godel Summer Social BBQ. The evening brought some insightful conversations and relationship-building that will continue long after the event.
