  • Sheffield meetup for web designers & developers: UX/UI, content, accessibility, and code.

    Details of speakers and location to be confirmed nearer the time.

  • This month we're turning the floor over to you.

    We're going to do a mix of lightning talks and a problem clinic.

    If you have something that you really want to share and can talk about it in around 5 minutes, then we'd love to hear from you.

    Similarly, if you've got a particular agile-stylee problem that you've been struggling to resolve and would like some help with, then you can share it with the group and between us we'll do our best to help.

    So, if either of these are of interest then please send me an email - [masked]

    Looking forward to seeing you there.

  • 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.

  • After the massive success of the last 2 security based ShefTests we thought to ourselves "how are we going to top that?" Well, I think we may just have! For this months ShefTest, Jay Harris (@JayHarris_Sec) of Digital Interruption has kindly agreed to run his Mobile Security Testing Workshop and give you all the opportunity to try some hands on security testing which you can take away to use in your day to day testing!

    Blurb:

    "Security testing can seem like a daunting task that is best left to external contractors. In the very best case scenario, we hope that the expensive penetration test does not turn up any security issues as this is likely to delay the release.

    This workshop is aimed at mobile application software testers to help understand exactly what it is a penetration tester will do and why for most vulnerabilities, a security expert is not needed. In this workshop, we will look at how security testing can be carried out on Android applications oftentimes MORE successfully...
