  • This is a placeholder for the event, please register on the Eventbrite site: www.eventbrite.co.uk

    The London Java Community (LJC) hosts a 'unconference' every year that allows developers to come together for a full day of discussions, sharing experiences, learning and spending time with our peers in the industry. This is the 12th unconference we've hosted and it's most certainly the premier event of our user group. This year we're sculpting the event on JCrete®, arguably the best Java unconference in the world.

    What is an Unconference?

    An unconference is a loosely structured, participant-driven meeting. It does not follow the traditional conference program structure. You decide what you want to talk about and which topics you want to discuss. The unconference starts with an empty schedule. No topics are mandated, no separations are made between “speakers” and “audience”. All participants work out a schedule by suggesting, planning,...

  • Urbans Flows Observatory and Sheffield Technology Parks are offering funding and support for projects that can help Sheffield become more sustainable, happy and healthy, using datasets linked to the city’s energy and resource flows.

    You can register as an individual or a team to participate in the following Urban Flows Data Hack sessions:

    Fri 22 Nov, 6pm-8pm: Preview Talks: find out about urban flows and the available datasets.

    Sat 23 Nov: 9:30am-7pm: Data Hack: explore, experiment and create something interesting with data.

  • Come join us for a few hours of chatting, hacking, and experimenting with Go. Unlike our monthly meetups, this will be completely unstructured - all you need is a laptop.

    The group will include developers of all levels of experience with Go, so it will also be a good place to share tips and ask questions.

    This is not a sponsored event for now, so no food or drinks will be provided. We use a laptop-friendly coffee shop as a venue, so you're encouraged to buy a drink or a snack.

    Please note that all attendees and sponsors are required to follow the Go code of conduct (golang.org).

  • The Sheffield Meta-Meetup is the meetup for people who organise meetups, and those who would like to.

    It's an opportunity for organisers to meet and exchange tips, collaborate and pool resources in order to make each other's events more successful. Many of the meetups are 'tech meetups', but not all - the meta-meetup is open to anyone who organises regular events around particular topics or for specific communities in Sheffield.

    This edition of the Meta-Meetup will take place at Spaces, on the ground floor of the Acero building in the Digital Campus.

  • Developing bespoke elearning: How to achieve your goals and maximise ROI

    A whistle-stop tour of the technology, skills, processes and potential pitfalls involved in bespoke elearning production. This workshop will equip participants to make informed decisions and sound investments.

    Elearning offers huge benefits. As well as cutting delivery and travel costs, it provides convenience, scalability, flexibility and geographical reach.

    But if what your organisation does is specialist, or you need very specific material, you may need to invest in developing your own courses.

    If your organisation is considering creating bespoke elearning, this workshop will help you understand your options and identify the best way forward for your learners, budget and business model.

    Delivered by elearning experts from Sheffield-based Can Studios, this workshop will cover:

    - what elearning types might best meet your needs
    - what skills, tools and technologies are needed
    - how to assess...

  • Title of the talk to be confirmed

  • A technical talk explaining the inner workings of Bitcoin.

    This presentation will cover "Script" -- the part that locks and unlocks bitcoins inside the blockchain.

    It will answer questions like:

    * What stops other people from spending my bitcoins?
    * What kind of locks can you place on your Bitcoins?
    * How does multi signature work?
    * What's the difference between different addresses (e.g a 1address and a 3address)?
    * How does Script work?

    This is one of the more technical talks, but it's designed to be beginner friendly. So don't be afraid to come even if you're fairly new to bitcoin.

    See you there!

    P.S. If you're completely new and looking for advice, I'm planning to do a very simple introduction to using Bitcoin in January.

    About Me:

    My name is Greg, and I've been working on Bitcoin projects for around 5 years. Bitcoin can seem complex at first, so I like trying to explain how it works as simply as possible.

    My talks are ideal for anyone who has an interest in Bitcoin, and w...

    Information School level 2: Room 204.

    "Extracting actionable knowledge from healthcare policies".

    Abstract

    The abundance of digital information gives an unprecedented opportunity to use data science in domains such as health and social care. However, the real value of the data is in the information and knowledge that we are able to surface and materialise. Knowledge Graphs (KGs) emerged as a unifying technology that facilitates the aggregation and representation of data from multiple and diverse data sources, both inspired by, and influencing, research in areas such as AI, cognitive computing, the Semantic Web, Search, Question Answering and Information Extraction. In this talk, I will provide a perspective from my journey and experience in adopting research in KGs and related areas to address significant problems in the healthcare industry through two use cases.
    The first scenario, Fraud, Waste and Abuse in healthcare, acc...

  • The Sheffield Digital Showcase returns for its fifth(!) edition on Thursday the 12th December, once again in conjunction with The Platform, to present and celebrate some of the excellent digital work produced in our fine city.

    Our showcase events lift the lid on the people, projects and firms in our digital industries across the full range of activity - the “full stack”, from hardware to content, mobile apps to ‘triple-A’ video games, virtual theatre performance to immersive data visualisations.

    Much of the work created here is recognised around the world but is not well known in it’s own backyard - we want to change this and make sure the whole city knows about it!

    The Digital Showcases are for industry pros and the general public alike - the format is similar to a talk show, with guests invited on stage to explain their project by showing the work and process with images or short videos, and questions asked by our own Chris Dymond, who delves into the details of how the proj...

  • This event will be split into two parts, Andy Carter presenting The Dramatic History of the Web Browser and the second half will be TBA presenting TBC.

    👉 **The Dramatic History of the Web Browser with Andy Carter**

    Microsoft announced at the end of 2018 that it was building a new browser-based on Chromium. It will join an ever-growing list of web browsers that are built on Google’s open-source Chromium project. With Google Chrome’s own share of the browser market continuing to grow does this mean Google has won the ‘browser wars’ and are comparisons with Microsoft’s once-dominant Internet Explorer fair? Now seems like a good time to re-examine the history of the web browser.

    Starting with its humble beginnings amongst the international physics community we'll trace the browser’s journey through three decades of progress up to the present day. It's a story rife with competing corporations, lawsuits and surprise plot twists. Does history repeat itself and what could happen next to the...

  • Join us in our monthly meetup to discuss: the current state of digital rights, what we've done in the past month, and what we are planning to do in the upcoming months (local events to attend or events we organise). Maybe a member will give a short (15 - 30 minute) briefing on a topical subject at the beginning of the meeting (e.g. on UK / international legislation, topical privacy or security things such as, say, leaks of medical records).

    👉 **SQRL (Secure Quick Reliable Login) with Liam Raper**

    SQRL (pronounced “squirrel”) is an open, free, intellectual property unencumbered, complete and
    practical system to cryptographically authenticate the identity of individuals across a network. Though
    principally intended for website visitor identification and account sign-in, its concepts may be extended
    for related applications. SQRL may be used alongside other traditional website sign-in systems, and it
    can replace all other systems while offering dramatic improvements in usability and security.

    Liam talk will cover:
    ⭐ What SQRL is?
    ⭐ Why SQRL is important?
    ⭐ Demonstrate SQRL working in real life
    ⭐ SQRL in ASP.NET Core

    👉 IoT with nothing but your Laptop

    Although the cost of IoT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right IoT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you’ve moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it…. Then you realise that you need some components and wires… Back in the drawer it goes!

    With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of IoT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of IoT. This way you can forgo all the procrastin...

    👉 Air Quality, Azure Functions and Spider Eggs

    Good quality air is important. After all, everyone breathes. But dig a little deeper into the subject and most of what you find is what we don't know. Is air pollution produced by local traffic? Does it waft in on the breeze? Are there times when I really shouldn't go out for a run?

    In this talk I'll describe how you can build your own connected air quality sensor and get data from it. I'll touch on embedded devices the MQTT protocol, LoRa networking, Azure IoT Hub and Azure Functions, along with our Connected Humber effort to spread sensors over Humberside. And I'll even mention spider eggs and show off my "Air Quality Top Hat".
