  • The first one wasn't a failure, so here's the second meetup for Bitcoin Sheffield. Worth a visit if you have any interest in cryptocurrency, or if you're just curious.

    My name is Greg, and I've been working on Bitcoin projects for the last 5 years. I think Bitcoin is an incredibly interesting technology, and I like trying to explain how it works. twitter.com

    At this meetup I'll cover the basics how blockchain technology works. I'll answer questions like:

    * What is the blockchain?
    * How does the blockchain work?
    * How many confirmations should you wait for?
    * Can you rewrite the blockchain?
    * What's the difference between a hard fork and a soft fork?

    As always there will be plenty of diagrams and lots of beginner-friendly explanations. I'm a techy person at heart, but I like trying to explain complex systems in a way that everyone can understand.

    So if you're interested in cryptocurrency, or just want to find out what Bitcoin is, please come along. Doors open at 6PM...

  • The SmartSheffield Meetup returns in September for a new run of events, starting with a focus on initiatives that tackle the city's Air Quality!

    SmartSheffield is an open forum for people interested in urban innovation and the use of new technologies and approaches to help to address challenges both big and small. We're very happy to announce new sponsorships with Ove Arup Group, Pitch-In at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Digital and a new run of six events planned for the first Monday every two months, starting on the 2nd September.

    For our first meetup back, we'll be looking at current efforts to measure air quality across the city, both institutional and comunity-driven, and what kinds of interventions are being proposed.As always, there will also be a Sheffield Things Network meeting beforehand at 5pm.

    The SmartSheffield meetup is a free and inclusive open forum and social meeting space for anyone interested in 'smart cities' and urban innovation, and everyone i...

  • One of our favourite aspects of running a meetup is meeting new people and hearing stories from them, so we've decided to dedicate a whole evening to it!

    We'd particularly like to hear from people about how they got involved with testing, what they've done since, and where they hope to go in future. We hope this would help us select topics for future meetups. We'd also really like to hear from people who don't work full-time in testing, but still do testing as part of their job, or as a hobby!

    If anyone has a lightning talk prepared on any software related matters, we'd also love to hear those. If there's time towards the end, possibly some none testing related talks too...

    If you've never done a lightning talk before - then why not jump in and have a go? You don't need to be a subject matter expert or a master of public speaking. You can talk about your own ideas or experiences.

    Talks should be anything from 99 seconds to a few minutes long. You can use the TV to show slides if yo...

  • About the talk

    The life-changing opportunity to leave prison as a Software Developer

    The general consensus is that prison is a bad place full of bad people. The first part of the statement is largely true, the latter somewhat of a misconception.

    Prison is a bad place full of deprived people. There are very few opportunities for the average prisoner to turn their life around and a necessity for our prison system and prison education programs to address this problem. Being in desirable employment is all it will take for a large percentage of our 83,000 prisoners to stop reoffending.

    This talk is about something which actually has the potential to make a difference to two socio-economic problems in the UK; the rate of reoffending prisoners and the inadequate supply of software developers.

    Code 4000 is a prison-based program which equips inmates with the necessary opportunities to be released into quality employment within the tech industry.

  • September's meet-up sees Sam Burns return with his talk Tests Make Good Architects.

    This talk takes a look at the positive impacts that automated tests can have on architecture. Unit testing in PHPUnit or PhpSpec, as well as behavioural testing using tools like Behat, have a noticeable effect on software architecture. Tested (or testable) code is often easier to work with, cleaner, and has architectural advantages. We will take a look at some of the impacts that a good test suite can have on your application’s architecture, and how to let your tests be your architect.

  • Title of talk to be confirmed

  • The Sheffield Digital Showcase returns for its fourth edition on Thursday the 26th September, 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 proje...
