  • This month Gordon McLachlan will be joining us to talk to us about 'Why you need luck to run a successful digital agency!' – Life is not a meritocracy and running a successful digital agency is no exception. Find out how luck plays a role in both running a business and navigating our personal lives.

    Gordon is the Managing Director and co-founder of Primate. He has over 15 years experience. He's passionate about digital and business transformation. And, indifferent towards monkeys, apparently!

    Gordon's agency is not a WordPress centric one, but his some of his experiences could apply to one. – Like all our talks there should be something useful for everyone, regardless of background or experience.

  • We’re trialling a different format for this month’s event: open-spacing it! In other words, we are inviting you to come with:

    * a problem you need to solve
    * a feature you want to implement
    * a kata you wish to run through
    * a language/tool you are passionate about and would like to share
    * a language/tool you are curious about and would like to practice
    * or an open mind to pair with someone on something new

    The actual topics will be decided on the day: we will start with a marketplace for people to share their ideas and organise ourselves around the topics of interest.

    6pm for 6.30pm start.

  • EdinburghJS is a casual event, presenting short talks and a chance for discussion with other local JavaScripters, whatever your experience or job title is.

    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.

    Talk - An Intro to Svelte

  • 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!

  • We live in a world where seeing is no longer believing. Deepfakes – hyper realistic digitally falsified video and audio - have been likened to disinformation on steroids. They have a disturbing array of malicious uses and pose a dangerous threat to society as a whole.

    The distortion of reality and resultant truth decay has left us woefully unprepared. How do we detect and moderate manipulated media content in a world where social media has exponentially increased the volume and speed of information flow, facilitating the proliferation of false information? Are our existing legal and policy architectures fit for purpose? What can we do as individuals to help rebuild trust in a digital world?

    Theo Priestley will give a sobering talk on the consequences of a world where you can't trust what you see or hear any more, and the line between fact and fiction, especially on the internet, has become increasingly blurred.

    But the fakery doesn’t stop there. Many of us have or will fall pr...

    THIS SESSION IS AIMED AT WP USERS OF ALL LEVELS OF EXPERTISE.
    Open your laptops and open your minds. If you go away from this session with one nugget of info you did not have before then it's been worthwhile. That nugget could be the thing that transforms your website!

    Neill Smith, Head of Infrastructure at the Directorate for Agriculture and Rural Economy will walk us through ARE's desire to embrace a modern hybrid cloud strategy. This was complicated by many mission-critical, legacy applications and Oracle databases that were perceived to be impossible to virtualize or move to the cloud due to their dependence on legacy technologies such as the SPARC/Solaris platform, Oracle Database 10g, and Oracle APEX. ARE virtualised their legacy application stacks using VMware vSphere, and leveraged VMware HCX and VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) as a disaster recovery platform. ARE proved that even the most stubborn legacy applications can be a good fit for a hybrid cloud environment built on the strong technological foundations provided by AWS and VMware.

  • Regular social outing for Edinburgh game devs to meet other local game devs and chat about game dev (and other things, nobody's fussy).

  • There are many Open Source licenses out there, with as many different models of permissiveness or requirements; most notably, the GNU licenses, alongside the MIT, BSD and Apache licenses as the most common. This poses a question for companies as to what can be used in what contexts, and the many differences lead some companies to shun Open Source licenses altogether.

    In this session, we will cover a brief overview of the notable features of the most popular licenses in the form of a talk; and then lead into an open discussion with everybody as to the preferences, concerns and implications of adopting the various licenses.

    Agenda:

    6:30 Arrive, pizza, meet and greet
    7:00 Overview presentation of licenses
    7:30 Open discussion on the topic, Q&A
    8:30 Wrap up, decamp to nearby pub to continue discussions and socialise
