  • Join BJSS Platform Engineers as we take on the AWS Sustainability GameDay!

    Hosted by AWS, we'll be having some fun taking part in a Sustainability GameDay. An AWS GameDay is a collaborative learning exercise that tests skills in implementing AWS solutions to solve real-world problems in a gamified, risk-free environment. This is a completely hands-on opportunity for technical professionals to explore AWS services, architecture patterns, best practices, and group cooperation.

    Players will compete in teams which consist of 3 players. Teams will be battling it out to win an Apple watch which will be awarded to each member of the winning team at the end of the game. Attendance is remote and requires AWS experience - all you need is access to a computer!

    The GameDay will be followed by an optional social session where attendees can enjoy refreshments​.

  • Our event is generously hosted by Sky Betting and Gaming, with a talk starting at 18:30.

    19:15: Socialising

    Speaker:

    David is a Lead Engineer at Tutorful, writing code and solving problems to help make 1:1 tuition accessible to everybody.

    He is particularly passionate about code reviews, how development teams work, CSS (don’t judge, it’s just fun!), good automated tests, and a nice abstraction.

    When not writing code or in a meeting, he will be playing (yet another) round of Dragonwood with his children or driving them to a dance class.

    - When you have designed and built a distributed, scalable application and an alarm fires telling you that something that shouldn’t be a problem is a problem… what do you do?
    - A journey across the stack, from alert to resolution, via all the dead ends. Stops will be made in AWS, Redis and at a smattering of dashboards.

  • How can you optimise how your data is managed online? With this course you will learn the benefits and risks around cloud computing. It’s applications and the impact this has on a personal level.

  • As leaders, our actions, behaviours and attitude have an impact on others. How aware of this are we? What do we need to think about and manage to ensure we have the impact we intend rather than another impact. If we're encouraging Work/Life Balance, but not demonstrating it, what message do the team get?

  • This is an online event, we'll be hosting the event on Zoom.

    Instead of covering the basics of how to get up and running, this talk will have a look at some of the more…how to put it…complex areas of ASP.NET Core. Instead of looking at how you build a basic Hello World website, it looks at things like building custom middlewares and model binders, how we can do URL rewriting and run background tasks. And more!

    With all the demos to be presented, and the limited amount of time to do it in, there will be no introduction to ASP.NET Core. There will be no “this template includes…”. Instead there will be a quick jump right into the deep end, and a big focus on expanding you knowledge of some of the more advanced abilities built into the framework!
