  • This month Python Sheffield will mainly be reminiscing about this year's PyCon UK by hosting a video night with talks from the event.

    17:45 - 18:15: Informally, a number of us are likely to be at StreetFoodChef for burritos. While these are not provided as part of attending, anyone is welcome to join us.

    18:30 - 20:30: Choosing videos and watching them.

    20:30 - late: Migrate to a local pub for post event drinks. This is often the Rutland Arms but will be another thing decided by the group at the event! Please note that this part of the evening may not be suitable for any children to join in with but you can blame that on the attendees.

    Attendance is free and the event is intended to be suitable for all levels of python experience. If you'd like to attend this meeting, it is advisable to bring a laptop. Any under 18s who wish to attend must be accompanied by an adult, preferably also with an interest in Python.

  • Cloud Ready JVM with Kubernetes

    Congratulations, you are done coding, you made a runnable Jar file. So what? How does it go into the cloud?

    In this talk we will explore how JVM applications can be packaged inside a Docker image and discuss tips and common pitfalls. We will continue with a brief introduction to Kubernetes, how it can help deploy our Docker containers & how it can integrate with frameworks like Spring. Finally, will look at a development workflow which allows fast local development of large microservices applications leveraging Telepresence.
    Novice & competent Kubernetes users welcome!

    Deploying and scaling Spring Boot microservices to Kubernetes

    When you design and build applications at scale, you deal with two significant challenges: scalability & robustness. You should design your service so that even if it is subject to intermittent heavy loads, it continues to operate reliably. But how do you build such applications? And how do you deploy an applicat...

  • We believe that more diverse teams create better workplaces, and better products.

    Much more needs to be done to recognise and celebrate the role that LGBTQ+ people play in the tech scene and beyond. We need to make sure that we introduce structures and checks into our teams to make them truly diverse. We are also living in a time when technology is starting to embody social bias. What can we do to counteract this?

    This event will showcase inspiring projects that advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and recognition. Short talks from our speakers will be followed by an opportunity to network with drinks.

    Our speakers include:

    - Emma Green is the Head of Diversity and Inclusion at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. She oversees D&I work across HR and public policy, and has a particular interest in the role of business in social justice. She’ll be talking about external D&I impact in the context of organisational culture and development, with some tips for makin...

  • Some of our most important laws--public safety codes such as building, fire, or electrical codes--are considered the private property of standards development organizations and may only be read at great cost and under conditions set by them. In this talk, Carl Malamud will discuss his 10-year fight to change that situation in the U.S., Europe, and India, including court fights that are ongoing on all 3 continents.

    Carl will then discuss the efforts Public Resource, the nongovernmental organization he heads, has undertaken to make other forms of knowledge more broadly available, including works of government and the ongoing fight to free up scientific knowledge for use by students.

    Carl Malamud has spent 30 years making government information more broadly available on the Internet. He helped put U.S. court cases, the patent database, non-profit tax returns filed with the Internal Revenue Service, and the Securities and Exchange Commission on the net.

  • Informal get-together to chat and enjoy coffee and breakfast

  • This event is part of the Up Next initiative.

    Speaking at conferences, meetups and the like can be a major boost to your career. Getting started though can be tough.

  • Octobers session will be split into 2 talks, "Elasticsearch? do I need it? and how do I get it working with my .NET code?" by David Betteridge and "Outside-In TDD" with Ian Russell.

    Outside-In TDD (AKA London School) is a TDD style developed and adopted by some of the first XP practitioners in London which begins with writing an Acceptance Test for a feature and test driving the code out to implement that feature by concentrating on collaborating objects and behaviour. This session will demonstrate some of the techniques required by this approach, help you appreciate some of the potential pitfalls such as over-engineering and an over use of Mocking and how it enables you to more easily write better Object-Oriented code.

    Ian is an experienced agile software developer with a keen interest in software craftsmanship and functional programming in F#. He is the organiser of Warwickshire.Net, a principles-focussed user group for the Warwickshire/West Midlands .Net community.

  • We are living in a time of significant change in terms of the work that we do. Traditional forms of work-based organising are being eroded and unions are struggling to maintain their levels of membership, particularly when it come to freelancers and non-contracted workers. Moreover, with the rise of platforms facilitating low-waged, low-security work, technology is currently seen as a force for eroding workers rights.

    However, there are examples of innovative technology being used for good, which we will discuss and showcase at this event. We will also examine what more needs to be done to harness technology to support workers and workplaces.

    Our speakers include:

    Dan Tomlinson

    Dan is a researcher at the Resolution Trust – where he’s taken a particular research interest in trends in trade union membership and has worked with Bethnal Green Ventures to launch the WorkerTech programme, which supports start-ups looking to make use of technology to improve work for the better.

  • Troubleshooting & Debugging Microservices in Kubernetes

    Debugging applications in production is like being the detective in a crime movie. Especially with microservices. Especially with containers. Especially in the cloud. Trying to see what’s going on in a production deployment at scale is impossible without proper tools! Google has spent over a decade deploying containerized Java applications at unprecedented scale and the infrastructure and tools developed by Google have made it uniquely possible to manage, troubleshoot, and debug, at scale.

    Join this session to see how you can diagnose and troubleshoot production issues w/ out of the box Kubernetes tools, as well as getting insight from the ecosystem with Weave Scope, JFrog Artifactory & Stackdriver tools.

  • Join us for a day of collaboration, building new tools to help people exercise their data rights.

    Data Rights Finder is a new tool to help people understand their data rights. Even when people are aware of their rights around how data about them is used, the information they need to exercise them is often buried in long privacy policies.

    Using a new open source dataset of machine-readable privacy policies, Data Rights Finder makes it quicker for people to find out how organisations use data and make GDPR-related requests.

    We are looking for developers to join us for a hackday on October 13. Together, we’ll work with the dataset and API to imagine and develop creative ways that Data Rights Finder could be used to help people with challenges around data use and protection. Whether that’s finding out what information a company has about them, or challenging a decision around a loan application.
