  • Do you interview people? Have you been interviewed? If so, this month might be for you.

    We'll be hosting a lightly-facilitated discussion about how we all approach hiring, and what we can learn from each others experiences - good and bad. Bring tips, tricks, problems and questions!

  • THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED! NEW DATE TO BE ARRANGED

    AI WTF is an event created to demonstrate how to get started with AI and the power of it. Every few years there is a paradigm shift that technology goes through; desktop to mobile, on-premise to cloud, and now procedural coding to intelligent models.

    What intelligent experiences will AI empower us to create as makers? So we asked ourselves AI WTF can you do!

    We will be running events across the UK in 2019 to share/collaborate/learn from different AI use cases, that you can apply yourself.

    Join us, we look forward to meeting you.

  • Not Just Gender

    This month we’re looking at another of the themes requested at our launch event last year - people are not just their gender. As is the tradition now, there’ll also be plenty of time to chat.

    What will the evening involve?

    18.00 Talks start See below for details.

    Over to you Please bring along any Sheffield women in tech news you have to pass on, events to advertise or questions to ask.

  • Sheffield Data for Good brings together the data and social expertise in Sheffield to help solve the city’s social problems. And it's for anyone that's interested, not just 'data experts'.

    The focus of this session will be 'Social Isolation'. The last time we met up about this topic, we had some ideas for what we could do next. We then voted on these ideas. And the winning idea was...

    - Map risk factors and community assets/services by geography in Sheffield -

    (see the full vote results at doodle.com).

    So, this Meetup will be to explore this idea more and to get cracking on something! We will be holding another Meetup the week after this to carry on with the work if needed.

    You don't need to have come along before.

  • Not everyone can make it to an evening event so let's do lunch!

    We're not having a 'proper' meetup this month due to a bit of a scheduling reshuffle (check out our June meetup listing for full details: www.meetup.com). So we're trying something a little bit different...

    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.

    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. If it's popular then we'll look at making it a more regular thing with a better venue and some talks. Or we can just continue to get together now and again and have lunch.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor or speak at a future event then pleas...

    Firstly we now have a permanent home! We're going to be hosted by the Sheffield Technology Parks from now on. They're doing a lot for tech meetups in Sheffield at the moment, so be sure to check them out and see if any of the other meetups they host peak your interest.

  • CodeUp is back to regular programming!

    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.

    Unfortunately, we can't guarantee that there will always be a perfect match between the number of mentors and learners, but most of the learners we speak to say that they are happy with the amount of assistance they receive at our meetups.

    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 s...

    Lunch and Learns
    Third Thursday of every month from 12 noon

    Delivered by entrepreneurs and experts in their field, the monthly Lunch and Learns in the Cooper Session series are the perfect opportunity to grab a bite to eat with fellow entrepreneurs and learn something useful over your lunch break. We will cover a range of topics such as leadership, organisational culture and investment readiness, but we’re open to hearing your suggestions for what topics you’d like to learn about in future months. We promise that you’ll leave each session with something that you can implement immediately in your business - whether that’s a quick fix for an ongoing niggle, or a more in-depth solution that will unlock the next stage of business growth.

  • We have two guest speakers for our June event!

    Sherin Mathew (sessionize.com) in the IBM Microsoft Practice and is organising July's AI Tech North conference in Leeds. He'll tell us "How to Disrupt the AI Disruption" (sessionize.com)

    Our second talk will be Sean Kempton (Founder, Tisquantum Limited) presenting "Zen and the art of Artificial General Intelligence".

    This is not going to be your standard talk on AI.

    Artificial General Intelligence is seen as an almost mythical goal.
    But what even is AGI? How does it differ from current AI, and how would we go about creating it?

    In this talk I hope to challenge you, to introduce new view points, and give you a glimpse of AGI in action.

    Sean wrote his first Neural Network over 30 years ago in Ada (google it) whilst in college. In his career Sean evolved from programmer, to solution designer, to architect, to enterprise architect, finally working for CSC for 18 y...
