    We meet every Saturday from 1pm in the Levels cafe, everyone welcome, just bring yourself and something to work on, experience optional.

  • This is our monthly informal gathering - just turn up, grab a drink, sit down and start talking UX! If you haven't been before you'll find us on the right as you come in, opposite the bar.

    Check out our new discussions board! Feel free to post anything here that you think will be of interest to the group e.g. thoughts/questions related to UX, details of relevant events, local job postings etc.

  • This is a special event in the group - because EuroPython is in town we thought why not invite some speakers from the conference to give talks at the meetup too!

    Because of this, the format will be talks and lots of opportunities to discuss/network/chat over the topics with the speaker(s). We have Vincent Warmerdamfrom PyData Amsterdam giving a talk and Kat Jarmul from PyData Berlin.

  • Speakers: Peter Ferry, Commercial Director, Wallet.Services and Stewart Pavitt, Chief Product Officer, Wallet.Services, Dr Hannah Rudman
    Strategic Transformation Director, Wallet.Services

    In March 2017 The Scottish Government identified Distributed Ledger Technology, or blockchain, as a tool which can address common issues in digital public services.

    It committed to exploring its potential and to sharing best practice with progressive international governments. Meetup regular Wallet.Services, in partnership with the Scottish Government through the CivTech® programme, conducted international and local research into the application of DLT in digital public services.

    In this meetup we will present our research findings: referencing early use of DLT in public services around the world, discussing its potential in public services, and suggesting opportunities for its application in Scotland.

    This research has also helped shape the product development of our SICCAR blockchain platform: f...

  • This session will discuss the principles governing systems performance when designing and trouble-shooting systems and their associated infrastructure.

    There are a wide range of issues to be considered, especially those affecting throughput, response times, scalability and availability. Performance is not something that can always be dealt with by system tuning or simply buying bigger hardware. Performance issues frequently result in systems failing in some form or other, which affects availability and causes disruption to service. Understanding the characteristics that govern performance and overall system behaviour helps us to design and implement more reliable systems that can cope with changing workloads..

    This month we are joined by Stuart Herbert!

    ----

    Whether it's micro-service architectures, single-page web apps in React or Angular, or simply providing data-and-functionality-as-a-service, API development is firmly a thing today. There's plenty of advice out there about designing APIs - but how do you turn it into working, shippable code?

    In this talk, Stuart will introduce you to his framework of choice for API development - Zend Expressive. He'll explain why he's gone with it, how to get started, and how to organise your code to get the best out of it. He'll also cover the essential elements that are missing (authentication, logging, metrics, validation, error handling, rate limiting), and finish by looking at how to go about testing your finished API.

    Product Up is an informal pub meetup in Edinburgh dedicated to bringing together the product community in Edinburgh. Whether you are a Product Manager, UX designer, Engineer or work in Sales/BD and you are passionate about creating fantastic products - ProductUp is for you.

    We started the meetup whilst working as Product Managers when we realised that there is no informal place to share product war stories, discuss challenges and keep track of all the amazing developments happening in Edinburgh.

    We meet monthly and as outlined, it’s a completely informal meet up so the discussions are entirely open. We have no speakers as this is all about you and giving you a chance to meet and talk to everyone in the community.

    The meetup is free to attend, so invite your product friends. Come along for the beer, stay for the great product discussions!

    The events are free to attend, but booking a place is essential. If you’d like to use your own laptop, please bring it with you.

  • In general, our meetup does not run presentation based events, as we focus on events during which everyone can participate and be heard.

    However, we have decided to organise a FirstTimeSpeakers event during which new speakers will be encouraged to give a 10-15 min talk about anything tech related - any stack, any softskill.

    Why? Well, because we are interested in seeing new faces and hearing of new perspectives, experiences and technologies. We are a welcoming meetup and we can also help speakers to prepare.

  • 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!

  • A networking group for people interested in technology, either as a hobby or professionally. Very relaxed chat with food and drink provided. Sponsored by Skyscanner, Cultivate and Informatic Ventures.

  • Suitable for ALL skill levels.
    Arrive from 6pm for 6.30pm start.

    This workshop goes ‘back to basics’ to give you skills to amend your webpages.

    WordPress has great ‘page builder’ tools like the new Gutenberg editor or plugins like Divi or Elementor. They help you put together blocks into a page layout. However, sometimes you may want to do something different that doesn’t have a setting in your page builder or editor. Then it can be handy to know what webpages are built on - HTML and CSS.

    After a brief introduction, we’ll use a basic text editor and a browser to write a wee bit of code and build a simple web page.

    Then we’ll write a stylesheet to change how it looks.

    We’ll finish by seeing how you can use the WordPress code editor and developer tools to make edits to the code of your pages.

  • We'll be meeting at Milnes bar on Hanover St at about 6:30pm. There *should* be Python logo printouts on the table if you need to find us.

    There's *no minimum skill level* for coming along! If you like talking about Python or related technologies, and you're interested in meeting like-minded people and finding out what they're up to, just turn up! If you'd like to be introduced to some people, ask for me - Mark Smith - and I'll be happy to introduce you to some people with similar interests.

    - making my site work for mobile
    - recommendations on plugins , SEO, accessability

  • • What we'll do

    Product Up is an informal pub meetup in Edinburgh dedicated to bringing together the product community in Edinburgh. Whether you are a Product Manager, UX designer, Engineer or work in Sales/BD and you are passionate about creating fantastic products - ProductUp is for you.

    We started the meetup whilst working as Product Managers when we realised that there is no informal place to share product war stories, discuss challenges and keep track of all the amazing developments happening in Edinburgh.

    We meet monthly and as outlined, it’s a completely informal meet up so the discussions are entirely open. We have no speakers as this is all about you and giving you a chance to meet and talk to everyone in the community.

    The meetup is free to attend, so invite your product friends. Come along for the beer, stay for the great product discussions!
