    πŸ‘‰ Getting Started with Unity and AR/VR for the .NET Developer

    We all see the cool demos of how augmented and virtual reality are going to be the future of our interaction with devices, but it often feels like there’s a significant barrier to getting started in building these types of apps.

    This session is here to help. If you’ve ever thought about developing for Oculus Rift S, HTC VIVE or the Windows Mixed Reality headsets, but haven’t known where to start, this is the session for you.

    At DDD, I will present what I learned building a small game, set i...

  • How does the Job Support Scheme differ from the Furlough scheme and how will it work for your business and employees? If you have questions around the new scheme, make sure to sign up for our webinar with HR expert Sarah Birkenshaw of Quest Consulting on Wednesday November 4th, 10am BST.

    Sarah will be providing an introduction to the Job Support Scheme and commenting on the general challenges businesses are going to face in this second round of lockdowns in the UK.

    We anticipate this will be a popular webinar! If you have a question about the Job Support Scheme, please email it to us in advance (to camille.brouard@myhrtoolkit.com) so Sarah will be more likely to answer your question during the webinar.

  • This month we're starting the evening where most of our other meetups end... with a couple of rounds of discussion and lively debate.
    We'll supply a range of discussion topics, from the seemingly innocuous "What's the best bug you've ever found?" to the downright inflammatory "We don't need testers, just get the devs to write more tests!". It's up to you to expand, defend or deconstruct the hand you're dealt.

    Come and play along, share your story or maybe play devil's advocate?

    ---

    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.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor, host or speak at a future event then please do get in touch! And don't forget to keep an eye on the Meetup page or on www.twitter.com for details of upcoming events.

  • How can we help Sheffield turn electrical waste into practical tools for people that need them?

    BetterPoints are working with representatives from around the city of Sheffield including the University of Sheffield, Sheffield City Council, Aspire Community Enterprise and Sheffield Digital, with a wealth of knowledge and skills, to tackle the challenge of WEEE and its impact on the environment. The aim is to work as a multi-disciplinary group to explore the challenges of the digital divide and how the circular economy of WEEE could be part of the solution.

    This challenge will be in the form of a virtual Climathon event on Friday 13th November 2020. In the lead up to the event there will be two webinars which will set the scene of the challenge. The first will set out the circular economy of e-waste and it's impact on the environment and the second will look at the issues and challenges faced by those residents in Sheffield who do not have access to technology, skills or confidence...

  • Field & Sheffield Digital will host an outdoor festival, showcasing and celebrating what the city’s creative and tech communities have to offer.

    The Festival itself will take a slightly different flavour from last year, with most of the core activities taking place outdoors. However we are still very much focused on our theme of β€˜Discovery’ and this has been embedded in our re-shaped Festival plan.

    Field & Sheffield Digital will host an outdoor digital festival around the city, showcasing and celebrating what our creative and tech communities have to offer. This will be achieved firstly through an Augmented Reality app, encouraging people to engage with multiple experiences as they work their way around Sheffield & Barnsley, and secondly through events and experiences (virtual or socially distanced) organised by individuals or companies during Festival week.

    More info coming soon.

  • Our next virtual meet up will be held as part of Sheffield Digital Festival. Join us as we hear from a panel and explore both traditional and non-traditional routes into coding.

    More info coming soon.

  • A unique event in the Sheffield City Region to listen to expert speakers from a range of advanced digital technology fields talk about the real world benefits that are being achieved using them and also meet local and regional delivery partners who can help you identify and pursue your own real life implementations.
