  • The Sheffield Digital Showcase returns for its third(!) edition on Thursday the 27th June, once again in conjunction with The Platform, to present and celebrate some of the excellent digital work produced in our fine city.

    Our showcase events lift the lid on the people, projects and firms in our digital industries across the full range of activity - the “full stack”, from hardware to content, mobile apps to ‘triple-A’ video games, virtual theatre performance to immersive data visualisations.

    Much of the work created here is recognised around the world but is not well known in it’s own backyard - we want to change this and make sure the whole city knows about it!

    The Digital Showcases are for industry pros and the general public alike - the format is similar to a talk show, with guests invited on stage to explain their project by showing the work and process with images or short videos, and questions asked by our own Chris Dymond, who delves into the details of how the project...

    Cooper Sessions is year-long programme of events and activities aimed at small businesses and entrepreneurs who want to take their business to the next level.

    Cooper Sessions include post-work “Fireside Chats” on the first Tuesday of every month, and hour-long “Lunch and Learns” on the third Thursday of every month.

  • This event will be broken down into 3 talks, Storage and analysis of large time-series datasets by Robin Hartley, Carter - Mircro-frameworks by Richard Tasker and ASP.NET Core Health Check Talk by Chris Amery.

    **Storage and analysis of large time-series datasets**

    With Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things, we have time-series data pouring out of our ears. Alongside the opportunities this 'big data' brings, there are serious challenges in how to efficiently store and analyse this data. In this talk, Robin will present some of the storage and analysis techniques that we can use to address these challenges. However, there is no silver bullet and hopefully the thoughts and input of the audience will be equally valuable in navigating this "big data" challenge.

    **Carter - Micro-frameworks**

    In 2007 Sinatra was debuted, a DSL, written in Ruby, for building websites, web services, and web applications.
    This spawned a movement towards using a minimalistic approach to building web applica...

  • After our last technical meetup, we thought it was time to dive back into something more non-functional for July's meetup! Andrew Shaw has kindly offered to come and deliver his talk 'How to think like a tester" which he has delivered at various other meetups and conferences!

    "How to think like a Tester" is a talk about how software testing strategies are useful for testing software, the benefits and limitations of automated testing, and how having a creative and exploratory mindset is useful as a tester. My talk also includes some fun activities for testing software, as well as ways professionals can develop as software testers.

    As before, we are back at Sheffield Technology Parks.

    The rough running order for the evening will be:

    6:30 - Doors open
    7:00 - Talk Part 1
