We post a monthly email to the London Indie Hackers community, including:

  • details of the next remote meetup
  • locally made products / articles
  • milestones from the community
  • bulletin board (e.g. looking for work, recruiting users for research etc)

Our goals is to make London the world's most supportive Indie Hackers community, and a creating well-read newsletter plays an important part.
