    This month's meeting will feature:

    CREATIVE PEOPLE NEED DATA!
    Nicola Osborne (#CreativeInformatics, University of Edinburgh) with a reprise of her Edinburgh Fringe Festival Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas show.
    Nicola reckons data-driven technologies are inspiring new and unexpected opportunities for creative people and organisations to think about what they do, how they do it and how they make a living from doing what they love.
    Data will shape media, performance, crafts, whole new cultural experiences and forms of value. Do you agree? Do you know what data-driven technologies are? Is this all promising too much? Bring wild ideas, questions or your (data-driven) heckles!

    Unlock the power of the terminal on Android via Termux!

    Learn how your phone/tablet can be used as a full programming environment (editor, compilers, git...), back-up your phone to your computer over Wifi using standard UNIX tools, and create customized scripts that interact with Android's native menus and file-sharing capabilities.

    The talk targets both beginners, for whom Termux is an easy way into the Linux command-line world; and advanced users, who can use Termux to configure (break) their systems in more creative ways.

    About the speaker:

    JB is a developer spending way too much time in the terminal
    already, and found out one day that his phone has one too.

    Meeting at 7pm, for a tentative talk start at 7:15pm

  • Some say that he can answer any question before it’s even been asked it, and that he has already written the next 5 version of C# in Depth, the books are apparently locked in a Redmond vault and will be used to create the official specifications. All I know, is that he’ll be in Aberdeen on 2nd October and you’ll not want to miss this Meetup!

    That’s right we have Jon Skeet coming to Aberdeen on Wednesday 2nd October to talk, in depth, about C#8! And with .NET Core 3.0 launching just days before at .NET Conf, the 3 day virtual event co-organised by the .NET community and Microsoft, there will be plenty to talk about at this meetup so you'll hopefully be able to join us.

    Also thanks to our sponsor, Brightree, you can grab a drink and few slices of pizza so make sure you turn up on time, and of course if you have any special dietary requirements please send me a message and let me know.

  • Blockchain technology has been around for a while now, and to the surprise of many, has not completely died. In this talk you will be given a foundation to identify if blockchains are relevant to what you're doing: It will give an overview of what this new(ish) technology can and cannot do, and detail what importance it has to the world, and likely doesn't have to your business.

    About the speaker

    Thomas is a PhD student in cryptography at the University of Edinburgh, and part of its the Blockchain Technology lab, as well as a researcher for IOHK. He holds a BSC in computer science, also from the University of Edinburgh.

    Thomas' research is primarily into the privacy of distributed protocols, in particular of smart contract systems.

  • The most productive and innovative organisations are those that can navigate uncertainty most effectively. The fundamental uncertainty that we encounter is uncertainty around human behaviour. How can we be certain that a person, or a team, or an organisation will behave in a particular way? How can we shift mindsets to be more certain of our intended outcomes? How can we become more certain of our own behaviours, so we can show up authentically, instead of always feeling like impostors?

    The conventional approach to working with behavioural uncertainty is trying to minimise it by using apparently objective approaches such as psychometric tools or behavioural inventories. Although these seemingly objective approaches may provide the comfortable illusion of behavioural predictability, the reality is that they are poor predictors of behavioural outcomes.

    Rather than working with these invalidated and unreliable tools, it is far more effective to validate our perspectives and rely on our...

  • The group meets over pizza and beer or soft drinks, ranging and rambling chat, in addition to interesting and informative talks.

    In June we have a talk about App development workflows, for web developers, using Flutter and Dart. Flutter is an open-source mobile application development framework created by Google. It is used to develop applications for Android and iOS. Dart is a client-optimized programming language for fast apps on multiple platforms. It is developed by Google and is used to build mobile, desktop, backend and web applications. Dart is an object-oriented, class defined, garbage-collected language using a C-style syntax.

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

  • Queer Code Scotland is a new meetup bringing together LGBTQ+ people who work in the technology industry, or who are studying to get there.

  • As big codebases age they often struggle to keep up with changes to programming languages and package development.
    New language features can't be easily adopted, and packages are often stuck on an old version due to a backwards-incompatible change. Fixing this requires large scale refactoring which can often take hundreds of hours. Why not automate it?

    In this talk we'll look at Rector, a PHP refactoring tool that automates hundreds of different refactorings. We'll look at different use cases, writing our own refactorings, and even converting an entire project from one framework to another!

  • We discuss, demonstrate and debate how to write well-structured, malleable software

    We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month

    We are a nomadic meetup: the location (within Glasgow) changes every month. We try to run in office spaces around the city, but occasionally meet in a pub; there is no expectation or pressure to drink alcohol when we do soself. We’ll explain the format (Guided Conversations), and make sure everyone keeps up with the discussion.

  • In this fortnightly coding club for 7-17 year olds, we will be working on different creative coding projects influenced by your interests and what you want to do. Meeting at the Stockbridge Library with some experienced mentors, we will help you to build different digital projects like websites, games, apps or even robots!

    Where possible, please bring along a device such as a laptop or chromebook but we will have some extra devices in case you need something.

    The dates for the club are as follows,

    23/09

  • We'll be meeting at Six Degrees North, on Howe 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.

  • Doors open at 6pm for our talk to start at 6:30pm.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Having postponed our July MeetUp we expect you have lots of questions lined up for our workshop/helpdesk session.
    Bring your laptop and your WordPress questions... someone will either have the answer for you or know someone else who does.
    And you may have a solution for somebody else! We're all learning so don't think that everyone else knows more. You may have just the expertise that someone is looking for.

  • Morning Lean Coffee (leancoffee.org) to discuss our Lean and Agile ideas and challenges. Stickies and sharpies will be provided.

    Arrive at 7:45, grab a coffee and we'll get started at 8.
