    The session is 90 minutes, facilitated by TFoW team: JS will pull together a short deck for e.g. a 15 min presentation, then use the bulk of time for questions and conversation.

    Title: Context of the Social Age

    A high level view of the Social Age, alongside a perspective on how we must evolve our Organisations to thrive in this time.

  • Gaining strategic advantage with open source

    Abstract: To many open source is just software that you find and download under an OSI license. Open source however has the ability the give organisations tremendous strategic advantage when positioned and used well. In this talk you will understand more about what open source really is and how business should think about this.

  • EdinburghJS is a casual event, presenting short talks and a chance for discussion with other local JavaScripters, whatever your experience or job title is. Our goal is to have an awesome and inclusive community meetup where people meet, hang out together, chat, listen to talks, exchange ideas and make new friends.

    We'll be looking for monthly contributors who want to talk about the technologies they're most comfortable with, looking at the pros, cons and unknowns. Drop us a message if you fancy speaking.

  • 6.30 Doors open - drinks and food
    7.30 Talks start - TBC

  • Morning Lean Coffee (leancoffee.org) to discuss our Lean and Agile ideas and challenges.

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with the author of the newly published "Designing for Behavioural Change" by Stephen Wendel.

    Organisations all around the world are applying behavioural science to nudge their users to act differently. They help people overcome behavioural obstacles in diverse areas – from exercise and dieting to learning new job skills. While these efforts very widely in focus, the approach each group takes is remarkably similar. After years of experimentation and learning in the field, practitioners have effectively developed a blueprint for behavioural design.
    In this talk, you’ll learn that blueprint: You’ll see, step-by-step, how to work with product teams and designers that seek to help users take action. Along the way, you’ll see how organisations from Spotify to Walmart are doing exactly that, and about the tremendous opportunities, and risks, the field faces.

    Learning Objectives:

    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.

  • Informal and relaxed meeting in the quiet lounge of Avalon bar on Kent Road. You'll need a laptop to take part.

    Aimed at absolute beginners. We'll show how to securely connect to a server then we'll work through Bandit, an adventure game set in the command line that progresses step-by-step from the basics to common programs and beyond.

  • We need to stop talking about resistance to change and start building resilience in the face of constant change.
    In a world where the speed and volatility of change is ever increasing, we need to build a resilient workforce. This presentation is for everyone at all levels of the organisation who need to maintain a healthy mind and body when change is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA).

    The World Health Organisation has now included “ burnout in the workplace” on the International Classification of Diseases - ICD-11 QD85
    It is time to Unleash The Resiliator!

    Resiliators take charge, self-manage, lead, inspire and motivate. They innovate, create and experiment. They operate in an environment of collaboration and cooperation. These are all competencies individuals need today if they are to thrive in the face of constant change and disruption, let alone survive.

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

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with Fin Goulding and Haydn Shaughnessy.

    We are in the middle of a pandemic and businesses are clamouring for agile specialists to dig them out of a hole. But not much has changed over the last few years. Leaders don't know their purpose, transformations keep failing (be that agile, digital or business transformation) and millions are being wasted by some of the biggest companies in the world. So, we need a new approach. A simpler approach. What we need is Lighthouse Thinking.

    Learning Objectives:

    What can our attendees expect to take away from the session?

    ● Understand the difference between IT agile and Business Agility
    ● Discover why Business, Agile or Digital transformations fail
    ● Learn how businesses can remodel their company for success
    ● And gain an insight into how focusing on your operating model can lead to a successful transformation

    Here's some background on our amazing guest speaker for this...

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with Dr Suzanne Doyle-Morris. Suzanne will be talking about the lessons from her latest book: ‘The Con Job: Getting Ahead for Competence in a World Obsessed with Confidence’.

    In her work advising companies and individuals, she noticed that not progressing at work is often blamed on ‘lack of confidence’ but she felt this excuse was a total con job.

    It misses genuine competence, conveniently rewards the status quo and distracts us from understanding the context of what really drives confidence. This hoax means we fail to get the right people in the best jobs.

    In the session, Suzanne will be exploring:

    ● Capitalise on what you are doing well to silence the ‘imposter’.
    ● Convince others to value your hard-earned experience.
    ● Redefine confidence so it doesn’t continue to advantage the ‘status quo’.

    Here's some background on our amazing guest speaker for this session:

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with the awesome Dan Vacanti.

    Whether we like it or not, our customers’ most important question is “When Will It Be Done?” Answering this question accurately requires a different approach than recommended by many Agile techniques. By means of example we shall explore weather forecasting—and in particular hurricane forecasting—to give us insights into how we might approach this problem. The increased accuracy of hurricane forecasting is mainly due to the rigorous application of proven techniques like Monte Carlo Simulation and Continuous Forecasting. In this talk we will explore some of those practices and discuss how you might employ them to make your projects more predictable. We will walk through some real-world examples that will explain how to get you up and running with methods immediately. You wouldn’t want a little thing like bad forecasting get in the way of you delivering your projects on time, would...

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

    We usually 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 usually meet at ONE Codebase, School Hill, Aberdeen. We usually start at 6:30pm and run till about around 8:30 or 9:00pm.

    We provide pizza, beer, soft drinks and terrible jokes.

    The group is diverse, welcoming, sociable, relaxed, irreverent, informative and fun.

    It is probably a good idea to check AberdeenPHP on Twitter a couple of days before the meeting, incase the time or venue has changed.

  • The “Art and Science” of Analytics and Data Science: We should all be like Leonardo

    Point of the talk: This is drawn primarily from experiences in the domain of customer insight and customer experience. We think of analytics mainly as a hard ‘science’ but there is a growing importance to consider some more intangible sides to analytics: why do customers think the way they do (e.g. behavioural economics), why do stakeholders make decisions the way they do (e.g. influencing senior decision-makers)?

    • What are some areas where the ‘art of analytics’ is often underplayed?
    • What are some areas where the ‘science of persuasion’ is often underused?
    • How can these be melded in interesting ways?
    • Why do many firms fail to do this?
    • What could you do about this in your teams / careers?
