  • 'Design Thinking Dad' - Why I take my work home (and you should too)

    Over the last few years, Design Thinking Dad (DTD) has been on a transformational personal journey — from a 'Digital Designer' trapped by waterfall delivery, to a 'Design Thinker' working in a fast-paced Enterprise Agile environment.

    In this talk, he'll share what he’s learned and show how – armed with only an abundant supply of post-it notes – he's using Design Thinking at work to empower creative teams and in his personal life to tackle the everyday challenges of being a parent.

    This talk will help you to...

    – generate fresh ideas to your everyday challenges
    – avoid living in ‘default’ mode
    – understand what ‘human skills’ you’ll need to ‘robot-proof’ your career

    And perhaps most importantly, he’ll share ‘5 top Design Thinking tricks’ that will help you survive lock-down 2.0 without losing the plot!

    You don’t have to be a Dad or even a parent to enjoy this talk...

    DTD will share practical Desi...

    👉 Ian Cooper
    What is the clean architecture and how you would build one in .NET?

    Recently Bob Martin has categorized a set of architectures, including hexagonal architecture, onion architecture and screaming architecture as 'the clean architecture' - a layered architecture of concentric circles with a strong emphasis on separation of concerns. This architecture has become popular because of its amenability to modification as an evolutionary architecture and its support for practices such as TDD.
    In this presentation we will discuss the clean architecture and its benefits.

    More than that, in the bulk of the presentation,...

  • About this Event

    The development community from HMPPS Digital are opening their community of practice to the public. They will be giving a series of lightning talks from developers and technical architects from our community.

    Agenda

    Ryan Brooks - Engineering the review process
    Mike Willis - Delivering a single sign-on solution across a legacy suite
    Tom Myers - How we’re using contract testing using PACT
    Host: Nevelina Aleksandrova

    Our Community

    We currently have over 40 experienced developers who make up the broader engineering community. Take a look at our developer blog and read about one of our developers talking about her experiences joining during the lockdown.

    Our Tech Stack

    We rely heavily on:

    Java or Kotlin to write our backend services
    Node/Express to write our frontend services
    Circle CI for continuous delivery
    Sentry/Prometheus for application monitoring
    Application Insights for full observability into applications, infrastructure, and network...

  • Happy New Year! 🎉

    We skipped January. I thought you'd all appreciate an extra spare evening to recover from your festive hangover/food coma/family*. So we're hitting the ground running in February with a chance to catch up, have a chat and see what everyone's grand plans are for 2021.

    (*Delete as appropriate)

    We'll be chairing an informal round table/lightening talk session where you can share your Testing resolutions for the year. What are you going to do more of? Do less of? Or do better at?

    Bring a cuppa and get involved or feel free to just tune in and listen.

    The rough running order for the evening will be:

    6:30 - Virtual Doors open
    7:00 - Ready, Steady, Talk!
    8:00 (or whenever we run out of steam) - Back downstairs to see what's on telly.

    Welcome to GoSheffield! This is where the Go community in Sheffield meets once a month to talk about cool hacks and interesting technology.

    The meetup call will run from 18:30 until 19:30 (18:30 to 19:30 UTC), featuring:

    * Why I wrote another Go HTTP Client - Glen Mailer
    * Go worst practices - Oliver Powell

    Please get in touch with the organisers if you'd like to give a talk. All topics and levels of experience are welcome!

    Since this meetup is entirely online, no food or drinks can be provided. Our online meetups will also be sponsor-free, given that there will be no expenses.

    To participate in the discussion, join from a quiet room where you can speak clearly and be understood properly. You can also join the call a bit early to test your audio setup with others.

    - 👨‍🏫 Uno Platform
    - 🍻 Virtual Bar

    👉 Uno Platform
    Developing cross-platform applications is complex. Some frameworks allow us to share the business logic layer. Some go further and allow us to share the UI layer, usually limited to the lowest common denominator. But even then – working with device hardware still requires not only error-prone platform-specific code but also developers familiar with each of the target platforms to maintain it. What if there was a framework, which would allow you to write all your code in C#/XAML, with full styling and templating capabilities, with a single API to access device hardware? Meet the Uno Platform - your C#/XAML apps o...

  • Join our online workshop to find out all about net zero, and to hear directly from two businesses close to achieving net-zero emissions.

    About this Event

    The urgency of tackling climate change is clear, and it’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to show a commitment to reducing emissions. The government’s plan for a green industrial revolution uses terms like net zero, decarbonisation and carbon neutral - but what do these terms actually mean for businesses?

    Join our online workshop to find out, and to hear directly from two businesses close to achieving net-zero emissions. AESSEAL, an international company based in Rotherham, and Crystal Doors, an SME based in the North West, both have experience in reducing their carbon footprint, and will share their expertise and answer your questions.

    In addition, the Translational Energy Research Centre team will explain how we can support your initiatives for free*.

    A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or a similar forum. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session, sometimes called a data blitz.
