  • This January, the WordPress Community Workshop will include the option to learn Gutenberg, the new WordPress editor estimated to be released in April 2018.

    Gutenberg will mean a big change to the way we write posts and pages and, in a future release, it is expected to make page builders redundant. With this new section, we aim to help you learn the ins and outs of the new editor before it comes out!

    The usual WordPress Community Workshop will also run as usual. Here is what it is about:

    If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to. The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

  • If you’re less than 19 years old and interested in learning to code, or already know how and want to go even further, you’re in the right place! Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.
    Prewired provides an unstructured but supportive environment for under 19s to explore and learn about computer programming and related topics. We have mentors from university and industry with a wide variety of skills who volunteer their time because they love to teach young people about computing.
    Prewired is also a place for young people to meet peers with shared interests which they can develop together. For some, it can be difficult to interest friends and family in computing, which may lead to a feeling of isolation. It can be hard to figure out where to go next when there’s no-one you can ask. We want to let young people know that there’s a huge community of like-minded people who are waiting to welcom...

  • This event is organised in collaboration with 8 other tech meetups from Glasgow and surrounding area. Because of this, the number of spaces available is limited to only 6.

    About the Presentation:

    The presentation will last about 2.5 hours and will give an overview of the following topics:

    * Introduction and overview;
    * Training Needs Analysis (TNA);
    * Setting Aims and Objectives;
    * Questioning skills;
    * Presentation techniques;
    * Finalising the presentation.

    This will provide a very broad overview of presenting and training and should be enough to provide a framework for future presenters.
    Having a frame to build on helps to structure the presentation and provides confidence to the presenter. The timeframe does not allow for anything detailed.

    Prewired provides an unstructured but supportive environment for under 19s to explore and learn about computer programming and related topics. We have mentors from university and industry with a wide variety of skills who volunteer their time because they love to teach young people about computing.
    Prewired is also a place for young people to meet peers with shared interests which they can develop together. For some, it can be difficult to interest friends and family in computing, which may lead to a feeling of isolation. It can be hard to figure out where to go next when there’s no-one you can ask.

  • Tonight's talk will be given by Tai Kedzierski, covering bash scripting and how to write clean scripts.

    Writing shell scripts is a common system administrator task, and whilst a programming practice, generally does not follow the same rigours of software development process - as a result, bash scripts are often regarded merely as ugly, unmaintainable shims.

    Shellcheck: shellcheck.net

    bash-builder: github.com

  • 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.

    - making my site work for mobile
    - recommendations on plugins , SEO, accessability
    - and much more ...
