  • Open evenings every Fri 6pm-9pm

    Sheffield Hackspace is a non-profit, member-run hackspace for central Sheffield. Together we’re building a workshop and community to help people get involved in “the creative use of technology and tools for projects in fields such as computing, robotics, machining, technology, digital art or electronic art“.

    We’re interested in whatever our members are interested in! Such as electronics (including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and ESP8266), 3D printing and CAD, laser cutting, textiles (including clothing and kites), crafts, woodwork and metalwork, LoRaWAN and IoT, robotics and machine learning, photography...

    We’re always keen for new people to join who can swap ideas, learn from each other, and build new things. All skill levels welcome!

    Additionally we’re open every other Saturday from 11am - 6pm, and check out our website www.sheffieldhackspace.org.uk for info on the various interest groups that meet throughout the week.

  • The biggest entrepreneurial event is back in Sheffield! Join us on a journey from Friday evening to Sunday evening and build a business in 55 hours! We make sure that the surrounding environment is perfect for building a startup as we provide seven amazing meals, coaching and mentoring throughout the weekend and moral support if needed! Let's celebrate and build together Sheffield's startup ecosystem!

  • Urbans Flows Observatory and Sheffield Technology Parks are offering funding and support for projects that can help Sheffield become more sustainable, happy and healthy, using datasets linked to the city’s energy and resource flows.

    You can register as an individual or a team to participate in the following Urban Flows Data Hack sessions:

    Fri 22 Nov, 6pm-8pm: Preview Talks: find out about urban flows and the available datasets.

    Sat 23 Nov: 9:30am-7pm: Data Hack: explore, experiment and create something interesting with data.

    Successful ideas explored at the main hack will get a share of £50,000, plus a package of support to help commercialise their project and turn it into a business.

  • Come join us for a few hours of chatting, hacking, and experimenting with Go. Unlike our monthly meetups, this will be completely unstructured - all you need is a laptop.

    The group will include developers of all levels of experience with Go, so it will also be a good place to share tips and ask questions.

    This is not a sponsored event for now, so no food or drinks will be provided. We use a laptop-friendly coffee shop as a venue, so you're encouraged to buy a drink or a snack.

    Please note that all attendees and sponsors are required to follow the Go code of conduct (golang.org).

  • The Sheffield Meta-Meetup is the meetup for people who organise meetups, and those who would like to.

    It's an opportunity for organisers to meet and exchange tips, collaborate and pool resources in order to make each other's events more successful. Many of the meetups are 'tech meetups', but not all - the meta-meetup is open to anyone who organises regular events around particular topics or for specific communities in Sheffield.

    This edition of the Meta-Meetup will take place at Spaces, on the ground floor of the Acero building in the Digital Campus.

  • Developing bespoke elearning: How to achieve your goals and maximise ROI

    A whistle-stop tour of the technology, skills, processes and potential pitfalls involved in bespoke elearning production. This workshop will equip participants to make informed decisions and sound investments.

    Elearning offers huge benefits. As well as cutting delivery and travel costs, it provides convenience, scalability, flexibility and geographical reach.

    But if what your organisation does is specialist, or you need very specific material, you may need to invest in developing your own courses.

    If your organisation is considering creating bespoke elearning, this workshop will help you understand your options and identify the best way forward for your learners, budget and business model.

    Delivered by elearning experts from Sheffield-based Can Studios, this workshop will cover:

    - what elearning types might best meet your needs
    - what skills, tools and technologies are needed
    - how to assess...

  • Has your digital business got the skills to start adding value to regional manufacturers?

    Manufacturing businesses are increasingly understanding that they can make substantial step changes in process improvements by simply analysing the data that comes from their machines.

    At this informal event, the next in the AMRC’s Digital Meet Manufacturing campaign, the AMRC’s Process and Monitoring Team will demonstrate how they have generated added value to manufacturers and how demand is rising in the industry. Project Engineer Robin Hartley will explain how this starts with analysing data and finishes with presenting it in a format that businesses understands.

    Digital Meet Manufacturing (DMM) is the AMRC’s campaign to lead the way in connecting digital and manufacturing together in a way that benefits both sectors.

  • DESIGNING FOR THE NEXT BILLION USERS

    In this talk, Mårten will share some of his learnings from working with new internet users, and how to design products that reach users who have recently come online.

    He will share some insights that will help designers create successful products for the next billion internet users.

  • A technical talk explaining the inner workings of Bitcoin.

    This presentation will cover "Script" -- the part that locks and unlocks bitcoins inside the blockchain.

    It will answer questions like:

    * What stops other people from spending my bitcoins?
    * What kind of locks can you place on your Bitcoins?
    * How does multi signature work?
    * What's the difference between different addresses (e.g a 1address and a 3address)?
    * How does Script work?

    This is one of the more technical talks, but it's designed to be beginner friendly. So don't be afraid to come even if you're fairly new to bitcoin.

    See you there!

    P.S. If you're completely new and looking for advice, I'm planning to do a very simple introduction to using Bitcoin in January.

    About Me:

    My name is Greg, and I've been working on Bitcoin projects for around 5 years. Bitcoin can seem complex at first, so I like trying to explain how it works as simply as possible.

    My talks are ideal for anyone who has an interest in Bitcoin, and w...

  • 29 November 2019 12:00-13:00. Vanessa Lopez, IBM.

    Information School level 2: Room 204.

    "Extracting actionable knowledge from healthcare policies".

    Abstract

    The abundance of digital information gives an unprecedented opportunity to use data science in domains such as health and social care. However, the real value of the data is in the information and knowledge that we are able to surface and materialise. Knowledge Graphs (KGs) emerged as a unifying technology that facilitates the aggregation and representation of data from multiple and diverse data sources, both inspired by, and influencing, research in areas such as AI, cognitive computing, the Semantic Web, Search, Question Answering and Information Extraction. In this talk, I will provide a perspective from my journey and experience in adopting research in KGs and related areas to address significant problems in the healthcare industry through two use cases.
    The first scenario, Fraud, Waste and Abuse in healthcare, acc...

    RForwards is an R Foundation task force that was originally set up in December 2015 to address the under-representation of women in the R community. An analysis of CRAN package maintainers estimated that fewer than 15% were women, and a useR! participant survey found that women were less likely than men to have experience contributing to or writing packages. In 2017 it was rebranded to accommodate other under-represented groups such as LGBTQI, minority ethnic groups, and people with disabilities. The task force is organised as a...

  • The Sheffield Digital Showcase returns for its fifth(!) edition on Thursday the 12th December, 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 proj...

    👉 **The Dramatic History of the Web Browser with Andy Carter**

    Microsoft announced at the end of 2018 that it was building a new browser-based on Chromium. It will join an ever-growing list of web browsers that are built on Google’s open-source Chromium project. With Google Chrome’s own share of the browser market continuing to grow does this mean Google has won the ‘browser wars’ and are comparisons with Microsoft’s once-dominant Internet Explorer fair? Now seems like a good time to re-examine the history of the web browser.

    Starting with its humble beginnings amongst the international physics community we'll trace the browser’s journey through three decades of progress up to the present day. It's a story rife with competing corporations, lawsuits and surprise plot twists. Does history repeat itself and what could happen next to the...

  • This event will be split into two parts, Peter Gallagher presenting IoT with nothing but your Laptop and the second half will be David Whitney presenting Clouds, Microservices, and the Brittleness of Architecture.

    👉 IoT with nothing but your Laptop

    Although the cost of IoT hardware has reduced dramatically over the last few years, you still need to choose the right IoT option, figure out what accessories it needs, order it all from Amazon and wait for it to arrive. By that point, you’ve moved on to something else entirely, so it sits in a cupboard drawer for a year and a half before you get back around to thinking about it…. Then you realise that you need some components and wires… Back in the drawer it goes!

    With the advent of HTML 5, so comes the ability to simulate a lot of IoT Kit right there in your web browser. Pete will take you through a few online simulators for IoT technology, which will give you a head start into the world of IoT. This way you can forgo all the procrastin...
