  • DESCRIPTION
    Quantum Key Distribution: a gentle introduction
    Speaker: Prof Alan Woodward, University of Surrey
    Venue: Room 4.31, University of Edinburgh Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AB.
    Refreshments and networking from 6:00 pm.
    Synopsis
    The potential arrival of quantum computers poses a threat to the most common public key encryption system in use today. However, quantum principles can be employed to create systems that allow theoretically secure key exchange schemes. In this talk we give a gentle introduction to how and why quantum key distribution works, plus we explore some of the implementation difficulties and how they affect the security of the schemes. Practical schemes are described and some of the exciting, near developments in the field are described. The talk hopes to equip the audience to consider the question of whether quantum based encryption schemes are the answer to the threat posed by quantum computers.

  • Speaker 1 - Rob McLeod - Comet Global Consulting.

    Head of Digital and Customer Experience - www.linkedin.com

    “I have an opportunity for you…”

    That’s a phrase I’ve come to reflect on as a firm retort to fellow marketers who drear at the changes experienced in the consumer sphere in recent times. When you look at some of the headlines of data-driven perspectives on consumer finances today you really can’t help but be overcome by “doom and gloom”:

    Aging population

    Move from buying to renting

    “Polarisation” of population

    Generation gap

    Tech changes and automation

    Loss of confidence in financial suppliers

    But when you challenge what consumer data really tells us, I’m not hearing necessarily that the future will be worse – rather that it will most certainly be different.

    Rob will be here to discuss these points in details - See full blog - www.cometgc.com (www.cometgc.com...

    Synopsis

    Insiders – they’re the one thing that we all have in our businesses. Whether we are talking about employees, contractors or partners, you need to know that your confidential data, intellectual property and your customer’s personal data is secure.
    Signatures are old hat and just don’t work. Rules describe your company but you can’t define rules to cover every possible threat scenario.

    Learn about the new approach of User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) and how it can be used to spot unusual and potentially dangerous user behaviour – even those behaviours which you hadn’t considered as risky.


    Attend this BCS meeting and learn about using User Behaviour Analytics to:

  • Aberdeen PHP User Group aims to provide a regular meeting for developers in Aberdeen and the surrounding areas to get together and discuss just about anything in and around the PHP Community.

    We meet on the first Wednesday of each month and run talks or open conversations around a variety of tech topics; with a focus on PHP development but extending to general development practises.

    This month we'll be doing a back to basics session running through contributing to using git and contributing to Open Source projects. Since we have a NEW WEBSITE we will be doing some demos using this repo and looking at what we can do to remove the hurdles of modern web development workflows.

    Danny Wilson will be taking over the reigns of the PHPNews (will try not to butcher it too much) and Rob Cooper will be doing a run through of how the new site works/how to contribute to it!

    Also a big thanks to all who have come along to any of the meetings over the last 2 years; head down and we'll have...

  • We will provide drinks and snacks in our lovely townhouse boardroom on the last Thursday of every month.

    Our current mix includes developers, support, sales and even an accountant or two, the link is we all work in tech companies!

    We usually break out to the pub afterwords for some more in depth conversations (nonsense!)

  • As usual - ensure you arrive before 1830, or entry cannot be guaranteed.

    Agenda

    1800 - Pizza, Beer, Chat

    1830 - Portainer.io by Anthony Lapenna (@Tony_Lapenna)

    1930 - One for the road

    Portainer.io

    Portainer.io is a software company based in Auckland, New Zealand. It offers a user interface for Docker called Portainer. This UI was born after the feeling that there was a need for IT infrastructure technicians, having no or a poor knowledge with Docker, to have a tool helping them use Docker. This is Portainer motto: keep it simple. As simple to use as it is to deploy, it allows you to manage Docker standalone hosts, Docker Swarm standalone clusters as well as Docker clusters using Swarmkit (Swarm mode). It is available on Linux, Windows & Mac. The talk will present Portainer.io and the software, it will also include a quick comparison with the existing solutions (Rancher, Shipyard...) and a feature analysis. It will end with a live demo of the software.

  • (a special 'B-Sides Edinburgh' warm up!)

    7.00pm A Brief Introduction to Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints - Laz Allen

    Goldratt’s Theory of Constraints (TOC) has long been one of Skyscanner's not so secret sauces. First used at the company around 2014 as part of the move to squads and tribes and used time and again across the company to drive meaningful, effective improvement since then.

    In this talk, Laz, will introduce the subject, cover a little of the background, the areas it can be used, the high-level principles and some of the practical tools for dealing with bottlenecks, critical root causes and dilemmas.

    This is an introductory talk so expect to leave with more questions that you started; but that's ok as we’ll finish up with some of the best places Laz has found to find more. Be warned though, once seen you’ll never see an escalator the same way again.

  • Getting online has never been more important.

    Being able to access the internet can open up a whole world of opportunities. Many of us take it for granted that we can click on the web and shop cheaply, check out the latest job sites, discover key information for our studies or work, book a cut-price holiday or fill in an online government form.

    However, for many Social Housing Tenants this isn’t an option.
    Digital inclusion is a huge challenge - and one which our host organisations are determined to face head-on as part of our vision to make homes and lives better.

    Our fourth “connecting the Unconnected” event will be held on the 26th April 2017 at the Mercure hotel, Inverness.

    We have a full agenda of speakers presenting on issues which relate directly to Social Housing Tenants throughout Scotland.

    A Full agenda and further details, including information on our speakers will be released soon.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • One of our regular drop in open nights, no need to call ahead, just turn up! We'll be tinkering with hardware, hacking some code and probably eating. Feel free to come along with a project or idea for some help, use some tools, or just hang out.

  • This month we're meeting up to grab a drink and a chat about all things technology, hacking and infosec. All welcome!

    We will be upstairs in the Raven, in the Crow's nest.

  • Every month, apart from December and January we have talks about technical subjects. They are not necessarily Linux related, but can be about databases, security, config management etc.

    We meet in Sportsters Bar, 8 - 12 Princes Street Falkirk FK1 1LU from 6:30 pm and the evening is about chatting. All are welcome, it doesn't matter if it is your first time there, and it doesn't matter if you turn up with a notepad full of questions, there should be someone who can answer them.

    Look for a double table on the raised bit on the left with a fluffy Linux penguin on it.

  • Aberdeen PHP User Group aims to provide a regular meeting for developers in Aberdeen and the surrounding areas to get together and discuss just about anything in and around the PHP Community.

    We meet on the first Wednesday of each month and run talks or open conversations around a variety of tech topics; with a focus on PHP development but extending to general development practises.

  • We will provide drinks and snacks in our lovely townhouse boardroom on the last Thursday of every month.

    Everyone is welcome to come and meet peers from different companies to have a moan and celebrate ideas.

    Come and pitch your new big idea or even ask around about new jobs coming up on the scene.

    Our current mix includes developers, support, sales and even an accountant or two, the link is we all work in tech companies!

    We usually break out to the pub afterwords for some more in depth conversations (nonsense!)

  • A room full of entrepreneurially minded professionals from technical, design, business and transport sector backgrounds spending 3 days and 3 nights side by side developing new products to improve transport services within the South East of Scotland - sound good?

    Product Forge is running a competitive transport hackathon at CodeBase in Edinburgh from Thursday 4th until Sunday 7th May.

    Regardless of whether you already have an idea that you would like to prototype, or don’t and would just like to make new connections, we invite you to come along and meet talented people with a shared interest in the future of Scottish transport.

    Participants form small cross-functional teams to work on a product prototype with support from industry experts in the transport sector and the wider technology community.

    Use this opportunity to gain new skills, network with professionals or even kick-start your own company!

    All our participants receive mentoring, 10 free meals and 24 hour acces...

    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

  • Welcoming anyone involved or working in technology.

    TechMeetup is a monthly excuse for developers and the tech community around Scotland to meet up and learn new stuff from each other. No name badges, no sales pitches, just informative presentations from your peers and a chance to meet some of the tech community around you.

    We're not centred around specific languages, technologies or disciplines; we believe there's stuff to learn from mixing everyone together. There's no cost to attend, and food and drink are provided.

  • As always we'll use the Lean Coffee format, stickies and sharpies will be provided.

    Look forward to seeing you there.

  • Our monthly meetup. Details of what we do every month vary, so check back for more details.

    Meetings follow our code of conduct, to ensure they provide a welcoming and friendly environment for all. No tickets are required to attend! Turn up on the day, or sign up on Meetup.com: www.meetup.com to indicate your interest.

  • Hey there,

    We're having a meet just to work on our own projects. We'll sit together with our laptops around a big table and make the magic happen!

    It'll give us the opportunity to bounce questions and answers, get the group to check things out there and then. If one of us is wondering how to do something or which is the best plugin for a particular functionality, perhaps somebody else has done it already and they can share their experience.

    Come join us, let's make something great !!!

  • Hi All,

    We are currently arranging the speaker, stay tuned...

    Meetup @ 6pm (speaker starts @ 6:30pm)

    As always everyone is welcome, we have beginners and we have developers in our group, so please do come along regardless or your WordPress knowledge!

    The social gathering we have after the talk has been very beneficial for people to meet others interested in WordPress and even get tips and recommendations not associated with the topic of the night.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Best,
    From all the organizers.

  • Our regular Mobile Dev Meetup event!

    The event will be hosted at the NN4M office and there will be pizza and beer provided.

    We'll be welcoming people into the office from around 6.30. There'll be plenty of time to network and get to know the other members in the community around the talks. There'll also be time before the talks to have introductions and any notices regarding team ups, projects, recruitment etc.

    Topics can be more technical with a focus on app development or more focused on the business/monetisation side. The event will cater to app development in general but if the content of an event will be more platform-specific we will try to announce this as early as possible to ensure you sign up for the events most relevant to you.

    The event should be over by around 9.

    Anyone looking to speak or suggest topics for the event do get in touch!

    Our events are now also streamed on the ProductForge YouTube channel available here and can be watched on video afterwards: pr...

  • To be decided but will normally be one or more of:

    • Short/Lightning Talks

    • Agile Game/Workshop

    • Lean Coffee - a structured but agenda-less meeting, the participants decide what to discuss using leancoffee.org format.

  • The Docker Edinburgh meetup takes place at Codebase, in their Event Space, which is accessible from the entrance on 38 Castle Terrace. The Meetup will run from around 18h30 to 20h00, with further discussion afterwards in the pub! Cloudsoft will be sponsoring the meetup, and pizza and beer will be provided.

    Please let us know what sort of speakers or topics you would like to see at future Meetups, or if there are alternative formats like lightning talks that would prefer.

    We're always looking for new speakers, so please get in touch if you have something you'd like to present about Docker or the wider DevOps community!
