    How Open Source is Funded - The Enterprise Differentiation Tightrope

    The java world has a wealth of great open source projects managed by innovative companies - the Pivotal Spring ecosystem, Confluent and Kafka, Elasticsearch, the Hadoop stack, RedHat and many more. But where does the money come from? How do these companies fund open source without compromising on openness?

    Privacy Engineering for the World of Kafka

    The privacy and security risks associated with using sensitive data can mean that long approval processes counter the ease of engineering and time-saving benefits that Kafka provides. In this talk Alex Cook will cover privacy attacks that Kafka data streams are particularly vulnerable to, and general techniques that ca...

  • At 6.30pm (NOTE START TIME) there'll be 2 presentations on current threats to our rights and privacy: one by Jamie on 'Facial Recognition' and one by Charles on 'Spies in the Passenger Seat' - as cars become smarter, their capacity to collect, store and exploit drivers' data increases. After discussion around the presentations, there'll be a brief discussion of forthcoming meetings/activity in the autumn and early winter, eg a possible pop-up on a Healthy Digital Lifestyle in a public venue and a presentation by an ORG national officer on Targeted Political Ads.

  • Title of talk to be confirmed

  • Third time lucky. Newcomers welcome.

    This meetup will begin with another animated presentation on the basics of how bitcoin works. This one will focus on bitcoin transactions.

    It will answer questions like:

    * What is a bitcoin transaction?
    * How do bitcoin transactions actually work?
    * Where do bitcoins come from?
    * What are transaction fees and why are they important?
    * How do bitcoin wallets work?

    In short, this talk will cover everything you need to know about how bitcoin transactions work.

    This talk will contain some technical details about bitcoin transactions, but it's designed to be very beginner-friendly, so don't be afraid to come if you don't have a technical understanding of bitcoin. However, even if you're already pretty experienced with bitcoin I'm hoping there will still be a few things you'll find interesting.

    So whether your a complete beginner or crypto expert, please feel free to come along. We will be heading to the pub after the talk.

    See you there!
    Greg.

    Kubernetes-Native Java with Quarkus

    Kubernetes is becoming the de-facto platform to deploy our application nowadays. But this movement also implies some changes in the way we code our applications. Before this change, we just developed a monolith application where everything was up and running up front, now we are breaking down this monolith into (micro)services architecture and everything is interconnected with the network. Although it might seem easy, done properly is not an easy as there are some challenges to address that was not in a monolith architecture.

    In this session, we’re going to start discussing what are these challenges (ie fault tolerance, service discovery, open tracing, or health checks) and demonstrate how they can be solved using Eclipse MicroProfile specification.

  • A Cambridge Cybersecurity group meeting.

    The format is a 30 minute talk at 7:30 pm with drinks & snacks from 7pm and after until about 9pm.

    Although emails are often used to exchange confidential information both inside and outside an organisation, email security is often limited to just phishing and spam filters... This talk will survey available solutions to accomplish email signing and encryption for increased privacy and security for all!

    Join us for an overview of how to protect YOUR email!

    Ramona is a Security Analyst at LMAX Exchange with an interest in solving and at the same time learning more about any security emerging issues.

  • It's been a while and it went down well last time, so we're doing another lunch meetup.

    Maybe the kids have gone back to school and you can't hang around after work? Or you work in Sheffield but have to beat the traffic on Parkway? If you haven't been able to get to an evening meetup yet, we'd love to see you. Or if you're a regular and just haven't been to Kommune yet, this is a great opportunity to try it out. There's something for everyone.

    🍔🍺👉 kommune.co.uk

    No format for this one. Just turn up when you can. Grab yourself some food. Have a chat to other testers in the area. Brag about any cool stuff you're working on. Bring your challenges and hopefully get some answers.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor or speak at a future event then please do get in touch! And don't forget to keep an eye on the Meetup page or on www.twitter.com for details of upcoming events.

  • The Sheffield Digital Showcase returns for its fourth edition on Thursday the 26th September, 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 proje...

  • We are pleased to bring you the next event of the Docklands.LJC, a group within the main London Java Community that focuses on the developer community in and around Canary Wharf. October's Speaker is Johnson Noel.

    Real-time discovery with Stream Processing

    How do you understand what your fintech customers are doing while they are doing it? With the volumes of data growing exponentially, how do you obtain real-time insights with huge amounts of data arriving continuously? What about creating analytics and visualisations to help you understand your business even more?

    Traditional systems store all of the data and then process it, having to traverse the data every time a change is made. Today’s leading organisations need real-time analytics to give them competitive advantage.

  • Details to come

  • After last weeks lighting talks, we're back with a more technical meetup. As testing is getting more technical and the industry is shifting more towards Devops, we thought we'd have another evening on Testing Platforms.

    Our first talk is from Tim Allen, Devops Engineer at 3Squared who will be delivering a talk on; 'Automated Tested within CI/CD'.

    "This will be a look at running automated tests within a CI/CD pipeline, handling errors and promoting successful builds. Not a tutorial as such but more of the shift in culture needed to make something like this work."

    Our second talk will be from our co-organiser, and quickly becoming a regular speaker, Samuel Turner who will be delivering his talk; 'On-Demand Test Platforms at U Account'.

    "At U Account we can provision entire test platforms as and when we need them, via a Slackbot we call Jarvis. As the platforms live in AWS (each in an EC2 instance), there's no limit to the number of platforms we can have provisioned at any one time....

    Why we choose React for a Large Scale Financial Trading Platform

    In this talk, Keith Bloom will illustrate why React is increasingly being leveraged to build zero-failure trading platforms, for the biggest investment banks and financial institutions in the world. We'll start from altitude, looking across multiple teams spanning hundreds of developers - we'll talk about how React's simple APIs and no-hassle frameworks specifically accelerates development for the biggest trading platforms. We'll then zoom in gradually all the way through to the experience of an individual developer, all while illustrating the points throughout with hard-core technical examples.

  • CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we get together to learn from each other, sharpen our skills and enjoy being in a space where everyone is immersed in code!

    There are many resources out there that help you to teach yourself to code, but sometimes there is no substitute for the insight and guidance that another person can give. Our group consists of coders with a wide range of experience, and our aim is to facilitate mentoring between more experienced and less experienced coders.

    All you have to bring is a laptop and some coding to get on with, such as a project, a book, or some online tutorials. If you are starting completely from scratch, we will try to guide you towards some learning resources. Please try to install any relevant software in advance, but if you need assistance with this, we are happy to help.

With so much discussion around languages such as F#, Haskell, and Erlang - it can seem as though getting started with Functional programming would mean first learning a whole new syntax... but what if it didn't?

    👉 **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.
