    We're not having a 'proper' meetup this month due to a bit of a scheduling reshuffle (check out our June meetup listing for full details: www.meetup.com). So we're trying something a little bit different...

    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. If it's popular then we'll look at making it a more regular thing with a better venue and some talks. Or we can just continue to get together now and again and have lunch.

  • CodeUp is back to regular programming!

    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.

    Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that there will always be a perfect match between the number of mentors and learners, but most of the learners we speak to say that they are happy with the amount of assistance they receive at our meetups.

    Lunch and Learns
    Third Thursday of every month from 12 noon

    Delivered by entrepreneurs and experts in their field, the monthly Lunch and Learns in the Cooper Session series are the perfect opportunity to grab a bite to eat with fellow entrepreneurs and learn something useful over your lunch break. We will cover a range of topics such as leadership, organisational culture and investment readiness, but we’re open to hearing your suggestions for what topics you’d like to learn about in future months. We promise that you’ll leave each session with something that you can implement immediately in your business - whether that’s a quick fix for an ongoing niggle, or a more in-depth solution that will unlock the next stage of business growth.

  • The event is free, open to all and will be held in the co-working space at Sheffield Technology Parks.

  • AI Tech North Conference 2019 is the first large scale AI conference happening n the North of England. It will be an event for technology and AI leaders, practitioners and partners to come together under one roof. Showcasing innovation and talent within the world of Artificial Intelligence.
