  • Following on from a successful week of virtual events last November, we’re keeping the Festival flame burning with more online events from the 17th to the 21st of May.

    In 2020, we took the Sheffield Digital Festival online to ensure that events could go ahead despite the pandemic restrictions. The transition was a great success, attracting a broad variety of events and attendees from near and far. We want to build on that success with another virtual event and in the hope that, as we get towards the end of the year, we will be able to hold events in person again.

    The theme for May 2021 is “Remote Control” – giving an opportunity to explore the technologies, lessons and impacts we have all experienced from many months of restriction, but also allowing for creative ideas and expression.

    Sponsorship opportunities now available
    We’re delighted to announce that BJSS and Sheffield City Council have already committed to being headline sponsors for the Festival. We’re very grateful f...

    👉 API Management
    Exposing functionality as APIs has been popular now for quite a while. In the early days, it used to be the job of the developer to overlay policy and control on the API, if indeed any were present. Like lots of things, abstraction and delegation is now a more common pattern.
    In this session, we’ll take a look at API Management and how it does this. The discussion will include, what it does, where it fits in a solution architecture, and when to use it.

    Many tech founders find they need to access to early stage external finance, in order to continue making progress with their business.

    In this workshop, we focus specifically on the different types of financial instrument – debt, equity, crowd-funding and grant funding - that tech founders may be able to tap into.

  • About This Webinar

    Life-centred design, planet-centred design, sustainable UX, digital sobriety and digital waste - these are not fashionable buzz words or trends but the industry’s response to what is happening to the planet.

    Agenda

    Why sustainability is important
    The carbon footprint of digital products and services
    What you can do to reduce the carbon footprint of your digital products

    👉 Reaqtor: Reliable Rx at Scale for High-performance Event Processing
    The Reactive Extensions for .NET (Rx) is one of the most influential technologies to have emerged from the .NET ecosystem.
