  • Beware - the account manager is talking about UX again!

  • Kicking things off for 2017, I'll be presenting a very basic 'How to get from nothing to something with Selenium Webdriver'. Automation is always a popular topic, and I know everyone always enjoys watching me flap my way through a live demo.

    There'll be a short beer break and then 3squared's Alex Bennell will be talking about Test Estimation, another contentious topic (but aren't they all). This will hopefully devolve into the usual lively debate and open floor discussion.

    And the important details - As it's the first one of the year, there will be a bar tab!

    Doors at 6:30pm. We'll be kicking the talks off at 7pm.

    Hope to see you all there.

  • This month we're having a practical session, so please bring a laptop if you can. We'll split up into groups and work on one or more programming challenges selected by the organisers from exercism.io.

    This is a non-competitive, collaborative (and hopefully fun) event where you can both help and learn from your peers - even if it's just "how did you just do that in vim?!".

  • 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.

  • April's edition of the SmartSheffield meetup will take place in conjunction with the pop-up Barclays Eagle Lab, which will be taking place for a month from the 27th March at Sheffield Hallam University's Cantor Building on Arundel Street.
    Full details of the programme and speakers will follow, but one of the things we will be looking at for certain is the Things Network and the opportunity to build out a LoRaWAN network across Sheffield, in a similar way to what is currently happening in Manchester and Leeds. We will also get to engage with the activities of the Eagle Lab and explore how some of those things relate to urban innovation and technology.

  • 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!

    There will be no structured workshop this month, but 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.

    Also please note the change of venue - we are now hosted by Quidco. There is lift access.

  • Please note that this event is ticketed as previous similar events have proved to be reasonably popular. Tickets are free but donations to our hosts, Union St., will be welcome on the day. Tickets are available from here: www.eventbrite.com

    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...

  • This month, Chris Kemp (@chriskemp3000) from NottsJS will be teaching us some React!

    "React may be something that you’re interested in learning, but looking at your first react app, even a simple one, can be confusing as there’s a lot of magic involved. There’s Linting, EcmaScript, JSX, Babel, Webpack, Redux, Yeoman, NPM and finally React. Rather than having to start from he outside and dig inwards through this, this session will focus on the core concepts and then move outwards to explain some of the things that support it. You’re then invited to contribute to an Open Source project to help build a website and be able to say that you’ve written a real-world site."
