I’ve been a member of the Brighton Farm for many years. They are a group of freelancers that meet every Wednesday in Brighton.

I often go to a coworking space in Brighton called The Skiff. It has a great community atmosphere and has many talented freelancers working there.

When I’m not too busy, I like to go to Asyncjs, which is a JavaScript meeting that runs twice a month. It is now held at Clearleft.

I recommend build Brighton if you are interested in hacking or making things. They have a well equipped hackspace, and you can go have a look yourself on a Thursday. Details on their site.

I’m also a member of Wired Sussex, who help to promote digital business in Brighton.
