    .NET Conf is a FREE, 3 day virtual developer event co-organized by the .NET community and Microsoft. This year .NET Core 3.0 will launch at .NET Conf 2019!

    www.dotnetconf.net

    We will be live-streaming the .NET Conf 2019 from 18:00 as part of a ".NET Conf local event".

    If you can't make it for 18:00 please feel free to turn up when you can, we'll be watching the keynote and hopefully a few of sessions which will spark some discussions!

    Agenda
    - 📢🍻🍕 18:00 Keynote, pizzas, drinks

  • Everyone is welcome. You don’t have to work in digital right now, you don’t have to identify as a woman, you don’t have to know how to code or how to explain bitcoin. You do have come in, be open and ready to participate in bringing about positive change.

    Babies and children are welcome to attend with a (vaguely) responsible adult.

  • Title of talk to be confirmed

  • Third time lucky. Newcomers welcome.

    This meetup will begin with another animated presentation on the basics of how bitcoin works. This one will focus on bitcoin transactions.

    It will answer questions like:

    * What is a bitcoin transaction?
    * How do bitcoin transactions actually work?
    * Where do bitcoins come from?
    * What are transaction fees and why are they important?
    * How do bitcoin wallets work?

    In short, this talk will cover everything you need to know about how bitcoin transactions work.

    This talk will contain some technical details about bitcoin transactions, but it's designed to be very beginner-friendly, so don't be afraid to come if you don't have a technical understanding of bitcoin. However, even if you're already pretty experienced with bitcoin I'm hoping there will still be a few things you'll find interesting.

    So whether your a complete beginner or crypto expert, please feel free to come along. We will be heading to the pub after the talk.

    See you there!
    Greg.

  • It's been a while and it went down well last time, so we're doing another lunch meetup.

    Maybe the kids have gone back to school and you can't hang around after work? Or you work in Sheffield but have to beat the traffic on Parkway? If you haven't been able to get to an evening meetup yet, we'd love to see you. Or if you're a regular and just haven't been to Kommune yet, this is a great opportunity to try it out. There's something for everyone.

    🍔🍺👉 kommune.co.uk

    No format for this one. Just turn up when you can. Grab yourself some food. Have a chat to other testers in the area. Brag about any cool stuff you're working on. Bring your challenges and hopefully get some answers.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor 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.

  • 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...

  • Details to come

  • After last weeks lighting talks, we're back with a more technical meetup. As testing is getting more technical and the industry is shifting more towards Devops, we thought we'd have another evening on Testing Platforms.

    Our first talk is from Tim Allen, Devops Engineer at 3Squared who will be delivering a talk on; 'Automated Tested within CI/CD'.

    "This will be a look at running automated tests within a CI/CD pipeline, handling errors and promoting successful builds. Not a tutorial as such but more of the shift in culture needed to make something like this work."

    Our second talk will be from our co-organiser, and quickly becoming a regular speaker, Samuel Turner who will be delivering his talk; 'On-Demand Test Platforms at U Account'.

    "At U Account we can provision entire test platforms as and when we need them, via a Slackbot we call Jarvis. As the platforms live in AWS (each in an EC2 instance), there's no limit to the number of platforms we can have provisioned at any one time....

  • CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we get together to learn from each other, sharpen our skills and enjoy being in a space where everyone is immersed in code!

    There are many resources out there that help you to teach yourself to code, but sometimes there is no substitute for the insight and guidance that another person can give. Our group consists of coders with a wide range of experience, and our aim is to facilitate mentoring between more experienced and less experienced coders.

    All you have to bring is a laptop and some coding to get on with, such as a project, a book, or some online tutorials. If you are starting completely from scratch, we will try to guide you towards some learning resources. Please try to install any relevant software in advance, but if you need assistance with this, we are happy to help.

    Please RSVP as soon as possible, using your full name (to make it easier for reception to check yo...

    👉 Functional Programming in C#
    Functional Programming is becoming increasingly popular and relevant with each year that goes by. With so much discussion around languages such as F#, Haskell, and Erlang - it can seem as though getting started with Functional programming would mean first learning a whole new syntax... but what if it didn't?

    Most .NET developers are familiar with the use of Linq, and basic constructs such as IEnumerable, Func delegates, arrow functions, and ternary expressions - but did you know that you can use all of this to implement some of the most powerful patterns and techniques from the world of functional prog...

  • This event will be split into two parts, Andy Carter presenting The Dramatic History of the Web Browser and the second half will be TBA presenting TBC.

    👉 **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 TBC.

    👉 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 procrastinating, and get to (virtually) creating!
