  • Get ready for Agile Room 101 - we need your help!

    We've been listening to your feedback over the last few meetups and we're continuing to review and adapt.

    Tell us what you love or hate here!
    www.surveymonkey.co.uk

    In this months Agile Sheffield we're going to play Agile Room 101 - discussing the agile things we love to hate. Whether it's your scrum team only talking about improvements during retrospectives, hearing stakeholders say that agile means no governance or forcing people to become T-shaped (who really don't want to), we'll be using our panel and canvassing audience opinion on whether something's going into Room 101 or it's living to see another sprint.

    To feed the Room 101 Machine we really need your suggestions. Your only constraint is that it must be something related (even in a minor way) to 'agile'. It could be a perception, an artefact, ceremony or related framework. It could be serious or something to raise a giggle. But I'm a lover not a hater.....

  • A regular and very informal meet-up for Sheffield digital types, over breakfast on Friday mornings at the lovely Tamper Coffee Sellers Wheel on Arundel Street.

  • September's event will be split in to two parts, Andrew Gunn will present on Identity Crisis and then John Stovin will present on Thinking Functionally with .NET

    Andrew Gunn - Identity Crisis

    Imagine a scenario where you need to secure a web application. Sounds simple, right? But this web application is one of many bulkheads that sit behind a shared API. This API must have security measures to identify and ensure each authenticated user can only perform certain actions. And these authenticated users must be able to navigate seamlessly between each bulkhead without the need to re-authenticate. Still think it sounds simple?
    With the help of Identity Server, it is simple.
    I want to take you on a journey to discover why Identity Server is awesome and why you should be (at least considering) using it.

    John Stovin - Thinking Functionally with .NET

    Recent versions of C# have seen the introduction of many features that originated in the functional programming arena - but where did they com...

  • A regular and very informal meet-up for Sheffield digital types, over breakfast on Friday mornings at the lovely Tamper Coffee Sellers Wheel on Arundel Street.

  • What does good code look like? Seems like a simple enough question to answer. A much harder one is how do you get to this good code? This is the question that Sandi Metz and Katrina Owen answer in their new book 99 Bottles of OOP.

    This session we’ll be doing an interactive session based on the opening chapter. You’ll start by spending some time working on the 99 bottles of beer exercise before we look at four existing solutions and discuss the relative merits and disadvantages of each. Although we won’t have the entire answer (for that you need to read the book!) by the end we should have a better understanding of what makes for good code.

    Taking part

    There will be a half hour programming exercise at the beginning of this session. Doing the exercise is not compulsory, but if you would like to take part bring a laptop with a laptop with Ruby (1.9 or above) and the Minitest gem (version 5 or above) installed on it.

    Don’t know Ruby?

    We welcome folks who are new or unfamiliar with Rub...

  • SmartSheffield is an open community of people and organisations who are interested in the ‘smart city’ concept and its applications in Sheffield. The group meets roughly every two months in the cafe space in Arup UK's Sheffield cafe and presentation space on the 9th Floor of 3 St Paul's Place in the city centre.

    The group is open for anyone to come along, find out what’s going on and contribute - the main aims of the group are to bring together a community of people who share a common interest, and to discover, discuss and get involved in local smart city projects.

    This month the theme will be 'Coalitions of the Willing' or how can we build consortia to draw down funding opportunities like the ones highlighted by Andy Curtis last month, how we can build out partnerships around existing projects such as the Urban Observatory and potentially around the city's Public Wifi network, and how these things fit in with broader strategic digital plans from the council and its partners.

  • A FREE monthly WordPress meetup for developers, designers, bloggers and WordPress enthusiasts organised by Kimb Jones & supported by Make Do and the Sheffield Hallam University.

  • CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we intend to provide a workspace for people with no programming skills to come and learn the basics, with mentors available to answer your questions and help you on your way. Our sessions will also be suitable for people with basic skills who need support to develop them, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who just want to come along to a space where everyone is immersed in code!

    Come along and talk to our mentors - they can help if you need some pointers to get started with programming, some advice on a project you're working on, or if you have any other questions about coding or getting your first job in the tech industry.

    Please ensure you bring along your own laptop.

    The Workstation is fully accessible with lift access to all floors. We are quite restricted on space, so we cannot let you in if you have not RSVPed. If you have signed up but can't mak...

    Overview of SharePoint Framework with Gosia Borzecka

    About a year ago Microsoft announced a SharePoint Framework (SPFx) - a new way of development for SharePoint Online.

    Now you can use your own machine with your favorite OS and just write the client-side web part. You don't even need to have an O365 subscription because you can test your code on localhost. What to know more? Just come to this session for Overview of SPFx.

    Gosia Borzecka is a full stack developer with a .NET background. From last half a year she works as SharePoint developer. She is also a co-founder of NottsDevWorkshop.co.uk.

  • Predicting House Prices with Azure Machine Learning

    Everyone’s talking about ML, but what is it?

    We’ll start off with a brief explanation of ML, including an overview of the different types (supervised, unsupervised, reinforcement) and algorithms (clustering, classification, regression, anomaly detection).

    The majority of the time will be spent giving a detailed demo using Azure ML Studio to create a model for accurately predicting house prices based on their various qualities. This data will be exposed via a web service allowing for single requests as well as batch execution for large data sets.

    You’ll leave with a good understanding of Azure ML and how you can use Azure ML Studio to build your own predictive models
