  • We’re excited to announce our first meet-up - on Thursday 18th October at Graham & Brown’s Design Centre in Blackburn.

    We’ve got an awesome lineup of speakers, including Rob Scott from the BBC who will introduce a high-level taxonomy of Cross-Reality UX patterns, along with a framework to help decide which interactions make sense based on the story you’re trying to tell.

    Andy Lord (CEO) and Stuart Kirby (Next Gen Talent Director) of Code Nation will be talking about how their developer bootcamp is creating the future talent of tomorrow.

    The Graham & Brown App team will also talk about the challenges of developing their first mobile app for iOS with augmented reality using ARKit, Xamarin and Microsoft Azure!

    There’ll be food and drinks provided, free parking and you’ll get a chance to play on our Microsoft HoloLens. This month’s meet-up is kindly sponsored by Code Nation (wearecodenation.com).

  • We get that sometimes, working alone in coffee shops or off the kitchen table can be a drain on your productivity

    So, we thought we'd try to do something about it. We're inviting all Freelancers and Sheffield Digital members along to our #FreelancerFridays - the 3rd Friday of each month - so you can work amongst other freelancers and make some new contacts in our recently opened coworking space - the Cooper Lounge.

    There's a small fee to cover our costs for which you get All-You-Can-Stomach coffee, Yorkshire tea and fast wifi, and any surpluses we make from the day will go towards future Sheffield Digital/STP events.

    What's not to like?!

    Limited to 15 people, first come first served. Please note that you must be an Individual Sheffield Digital member to register for a discounted ticket.

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

  • We're lucky to have Zehrah Hasan of Liberty to talk on fighting the double threat to civil liberties & digital rights posed by the Counter-Terrorism & Border Security Bill, which contains proposals to criminalise watching online content "likely to be useful for terrorist purposes" even if the content is viewed with no terrorist intent. The offence would carru a prison sentence of up to 15 years. IMSI catchers are used by police to extract personal information from your mobile phone while you're attending a public event, eg festival, demonstration. Some IMSI-catchers can also intercept data. Zehrah will discuss Liberty's campaign to have the police's use of IMSI-catchers (& other surveillance technology) clearly defined in law and put under proper oversight.

  • Sheffield G Suite User Group is a new monthly user group for on sharing user stories and best practice as well as information on relevant apps and integrations.

  • This event will be broken down into 2 talks, Log Analytics and Azure Machine Learning for Developers both being presented by Steve Spencer.

    *Introduction to Log Analytics*
    In a world where distributed systems are the norm and where we are building more and more things as micro-services we need a way to keep track of what is going on. We need a central place where we can collate all the information we need to diagnose any issues we have without needing to remote onto a service and look through the log files. Wouldn’t it be good if we could also write queries and create alerts so that we know when things are going wrong before our customers do? This is where Azure Log analytics comes in. This talk will introduce some of the capabilities of log analytics, show how you can query your logs and create alerts.

    *Azure Machine Learning for Developers*
    As a developer I wanted to get an understanding of machine learning and with the arrival of Azure Machine Learning I got my chance. This talk w...

    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 11th 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,...

  • This event will be broken down into 2 talks, "How to parse a file" and "Kotlin for the curious" both being presented by Matt Ellis.

    **How to parse a file**

    Yes, we're going to look at file parsing. Sounds a bit boring, right? Wrong.

    In this talk, just for fun, we'll find out how to parse a file. We'll look at simple, handcrafted parsers. We'll finally figure out just how lex and yacc work. And we'll pick apart structured parsers that build abstract syntax trees as you type - ReSharper style. How is an IDEs parser different to a compiler? How do you handle sensible error recovery? What about significant whitespace?

    Everything you always wanted to know about parsing a file, but were too afraid to ask.

    **Kotlin for the curious**

    Interested in Kotlin? And why not - it’s a pragmatic language designed to remove ceremony, solve real world problems and still feel familiar to newcomers. It can target the JVM, Android, JavaScript and native code, even running on iOS. That’s a lot of reach...

    *Advanced Entity Framework Techniques*

    TBA

    *Reasonable Software*

    In a reasonable a system (i.e. a system that helps me to understand it, to reason about it) I should be able to understand how to make a change without holding the entire system in my head. I should be able to reason where the change needs to be made and reason about the impact it will have.

    I want to explore what reasonable means to me, from the processes of the team all the way down to an individual block of code. Along the way, we will encounter existing frameworks, tools, and patterns that our community has developed over the years to help us to reason about our code and processes; I feel that they have often been misused and end up creating the opposite effect, adding unnecessary complexity to how we work.

  • 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).

    To find out more about our topics and ORG's work in general go to:

  • Dark Peak is a user-run co-operative providing hosted open-source software for the benefit of our members. The 'co-op day' is when we get together to share knowledge, improve our services, and make decisions.

    Non-members interested in learning more about the project are welcome to attend. If you're unable to make the event in person you can join us in #darkpeak on Freenode, where we'll post updates and be available to answer questions.

    Doors open at 11:30am, official start time is 12:00pm. The event usually runs until people get hungry and we head out to find some dinner. Attendees are not expected to stay for the whole day, just drop in for however long you like.

    If you'd like to ask questions before the event, the best place is on the mailing list (lists.richardskingdom.net) - or in #darkpeak on Freenode IRC.
