  • Sheffield DM is a new bi-monthly digital marketing event in Sheffield. Our goal is to bring digital marketers of all experience levels, all skill sets and all interests together to share their knowledge and learn from others.

    Following the tremendous success of our first meet up, we're super excited to announce that the second Sheffield DM event will feature Andy Naylor, Consumer Service Manager at Raleigh UK.

    With a wealth of experience in all things customer related, Andy will be sharing his insight and methods, along with how he has driven long-term improvements in Raleigh's customer experience and customer loyalty in the ever-evolving digital world.

    Our event is free to all but we ask that you register online so we have an idea of numbers for the venue.

  • Happy new year!

    After the success of last year's Lean coffee, we thought we'd kick off ShefTest 2019 with another Lean Coffee style event!

    Lean Coffee is a really simple format to promote group discussion. The group suggests topics they want to cover, votes on which one to talk about first, and decides when to move on to the next one.

    We'll be using some of the outcomes from this evening to plan future meetups and to make sure we're talking about the things you want to hear.

    Check out leancoffee.org for more info. If anyone is interested to know what topics we discussed last year, check out the photos below.

    And as always, there'll be an opportunity for some networking afterwards.

    If you'd like to sponsor, host or speak at a future event then please do get in touch! And don't forget to keep an eye on the @steelbugs twitter account for details of upcoming events and updates.

    Hope to see you there.

    Iain.

  • 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'.

    Last November, we started to look at homelessness in Sheffield and have since been trying to establish what questions people have about homelessness and what data is available to answer these questions.

    Since our last meetup in September, a small group from Sheffield Data for Good have been working closely with Roundabout to understand what data they are collecting and what this can tell us.

    We are pleased to announce that as a result of this work, Roundabout now have 6 datasets they can open up to us for a data hack.

    We will be running this hack as a full day event on a Saturday early next year but more details about the event and datasets will follow.

    This will be our first Sheffield Data for Good hack which is really exciting but if you have any thoughts or tips for the hack, please...

  • Do you want to try out functional programming? Perhaps you're already a functional programmer looking to practice and learn from others?

    We're trying something new with (def shef) in 2019. We're going to work through last year's Advent of Code (adventofcode.com) taking a few exercises each month. In February, we're looking at days 1, 2 and 3.

    We won't be able to complete these exercises in the two hour session. The idea is that you have a go on your own in the month leading up to the session and we can use the time to share approaches and learn from one another. You can use any language you like. It doesn't even need to be a "functional language", although functional approaches and their practical considerations will be the focus.

  • This is a group for blockchain enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, and developers interested in contributing to and learning about Elastos (ELA). Let's talk about smart contracts, DApps, and the growing push towards decentralisation. We encourage members to communicate with one another, connect, brainstorm ideas, and collaborate on and off-list.

    Elastos is the world's first Internet operating system for the blockchain, built specifically to handle the stress of running large, decentralized applications that require a lot of storage and computational power. With over 12 million lines of source code, the backing of industry leaders ($31 million USD in 2014) like Foxconn, Tsinghua Science Park, and the TD-SCDMA Industrial Alliance, and support from the founders of NEO and other open access / decentralisation leaders, this project has the strength to disrupt the entire blockchain ecosystem.

  • This event will be broken down into 2 talks, Reasonable Software and TBA being presented by Ian Johnson and TBA.

    *Reasonable Software*

    In a reasonable a system (i.e. a system that helps me to understand it, to reason about it) I should be able to understand how to make a change without holding the entire system in my head. I should be able to reason where the change needs to be made and reason about the impact it will have.

    I want to explore what reasonable means to me, from the processes of the team all the way down to an individual block of code. Along the way, we will encounter existing frameworks, tools, and patterns that our community has developed over the years to help us to reason about our code and processes; I feel that they have often been misused and end up creating the opposite effect, adding unnecessary complexity to how we work.
