  • Apologies: due to unforeseen circumstances, we've had to move this month's meetup back a week to the 20th February.

    Ruby developers are migrating their scripts to Go, Rust and similar. Performance and novelty are strong forces to contend with.

    It's time we bring scripting joy back to Ruby! Bundler and Homebrew are just a few examples of past glory. However, there are a myriad of tools to be developed and Ruby has the power and elegance to make building command line applications easy.

    How can the mighty god of thunder help us? Curious? Then come along.

    About our speaker

    Piotr Murach is a software engineer by day, open source enthusiast by night, mathematician by design and human languages enthusiast by life.

    About our venue

    Our meetup will take place at our venue, Union St.

    After the meetup, we'll be heading to The Devonshire Cat for drinks, food and chat.

  • Exploiting psychology and neuroscience to deliver exceptional interactive design

    An intensive one day introduction to designing to exploit what is known about the human brain and its capabilities and limitations

    Using principles honed from years of scientific study from the disciplines of sociology, psychology, perceptual psychology and neuroscience, this course will teach you how to tickle the brains of your customers with your designs and communications

    It's fun, it's interactive, you will meet interesting people to exchange ideas and experiences with, you will produce something worthwhile and go back to your desk armed with weapons (and a few dinner party tricks) to impress your colleagues and friends

  • For the second Sheffield Digital Policy Conflab, we're working with Creative Sheffield to host a public round-table session on the topic of what digital technology areas, or 'clusters', the city is looking to support (the sectoral bit), and where are the best places for that support to be located (the spatial bit).

    This will be a great opportunity to find out about the current digital hub initiatives, and ask questions of those involved in bringing them about.

    The format of the evening will be a round-table discussion group made up of invited guests who who represent the key initiatives, and an open audience who will witness the debate, and have the opportunity to ask questions and participate.

    Food and drinks will be provided.

    For this meetup, we are encouraging attendees to bring any projects they want to show off, combining this with a micro:bit hacking evening. There will be some micro:bits available to play with over the evening though you can bring your own. Alternatively you might choose to bring a Raspberry Pi or anything else you want.

    The evening is going to be split into two parts.

    In the first part, anyone who wants to show off things that they have already made, from lighting leds to small robots can, well.. show off!

    Please remember to be sensible about the dimensions of projects that you bring along, those that draw a significant amount of power and, obviously, n...
