  • Glasgow 2600 meetings are similar to those held around the world. Hackers, crackers, geeks, hats of any colour, technology enthusiasts, hacktivists, and other like-minded folks are most welcome. We do not judge anyone and everyone has something to contribute, no matter their level of expertise.

    Unless specified, there are no particular topics or activities set for these meetings, and each one of us is responsible for making them interesting, whether in the form of intelligent discussions or exchange of knowledge. Anything goes.

  • This is our monthly informal gathering - just turn up, grab a drink, take a seat and start talking UX! You'll find us upstairs at The Outhouse (off the top of Broughton St.) - take the stairs to the right of the bar as you enter the venue.

    Each month we'll have a short talk followed by some discussion around the things that interest you most. Add your ideas to our sketchbook - bit.ly

    Timeline:

    5.30pm. If you've not been before, come along and say "Hi" and find out what we're all about.

    6pm. Arrive, secure drinks, chat.

    6.30pm. Group announcements (job opportunities, upcoming events etc.)

    6.45pm. Featured talk

    7.15pm. Chat around topics suggested by the group

    8pm onwards. Anything goes :-)

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    This month’s workshop will begin with a 10 minute ‘lightning’ talk on the subject of WordCamps. Hmm. I wonder why 🤔😉

    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.
    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!

  • Pizza, beer and networking 6.30pm.

    Talk 1 -"Policies for Data Sharing" Prof. Wamberto Vasconcelos, Aberdeen University

    When we download and start using an app often we agree to sharing our data. Rarely have we the time, the inclination or the competence to read the “terms and conditions” and assess the consequences of giving away our data. We present an approach to expressing and reasoning with data sharing policies: by using a machine-processable formalism with associated decision mechanisms, we can establish for instance, if the terms and conditions of an app (or the privacy/cookies provisions of a web site) are compatible with users’ (or organisational) data sharing policies. Typical policies establish, for instance, that the app can access the GPS or the calendar, but not both; another example is within the health domain: the app can monitor my levels of exercise, but it cannot share this information. We will cover i) the information/knowledge necessary for representing policies...

  • To kick off the new year Paul Broadwith will give us a talk on some technology you’d probably not expect to feature at a LUG…

    He’ll be talking about the open source edition of Chocolatey, a package manager for …. Windows !

    “Wait, EdLUG will talk about a Windows tool ??”

    It is, more generally, an Open Source tool (Apache 2.0 license), which also enables a new way of discovering and installing applications. Introducing CLI package management to Windows users can be a helpful way to ease them into the idea of using a terminal - and make the case for Linux that much easier to present.

    It runs on the command line, typically in PowerShell, and behaves pretty much like package managers you know like APT, dnf/yum or npm. In fact, it is more like ‘yaourt’ and the Arch User Repository in that the packages are community-curated. You can even install graphical apps like Firefox and Filezilla with it.

    So come along for a journey of discovery, Windows and Linux users alike!

    We’ll be meeting at...

  • Join an informal conversation about organising for fairer working conditions in the Edinburgh Tech Sector. This includes discussion about pay, benefits, equality, work culture, mental and physical health, etc - all ideas welcome. We should have some flyers on the tables so you can find us.

    Let's do something useful with those January blues.

    Don't worry about signing up with Meetup if you're not already - just come along, no need to RSVP.

  • Wisdom and wealth, are bitcoin newcomers doomed? - Max Sherwood - www.linkedin.com

    After mining bitcoin in 2013 and witnessing the technology firsthand, Max began investing and proceeded to learn many lessons the hard way. Five years later, his failures led to eventual success, but he wondered what it would take for new crypto investors to avoid these painful experiences and make the right moves from Day 1.

    In 2019, Max launched an online course for beginner bitcoin investors, pointing to the lack of high-quality investment information as a major hurdle to bitcoin’s adoption.

  • I See What You Mean - two ways vision helps us understand speech

    Gordon McLeod & Ben Hopson of Cirrus Logic (www.cirrus.com)

    Speaker identification technology is increasingly common on mobile devices. The virtual assistant becomes more compelling when it knows who you are and, in some use cases, voice ID is a more convenient way of unlocking than by face or fingerprint.
    Incoming audio is first processed into features which are stable, distinctive and hard to imitate – ideally capturing unique aspects of the speaker's vocal tract. Several different visualisations are required to select features and confirm that feature extraction works consistently over a large number of speakers and environmental conditions.
    Features are then fed into a classifier which compares the extracted features to enrolled users to determine if the audio is recognised. Training, tuning testing and debugging this system brings with it many of the challenges of machine learning. There is a need to visualise data...
