  • For your August event Lean Agile Glasgowers, we will be joined by the amazing Cliff Hazell.

    -----------------------------
    Beyond Copy Paste Agile with Systems, Science and Sapiens - Cliff Hazell

    Today it’s common for company leaders to express a desire to be more agile, and many embark on expensive change journeys, to make their teams more agile.

    After years on this journey fraught with “resistance” and lots of change, and yet seldom able to show results that are meaningful to customers or the business

    Part of the problem is the core assumption that the problems, and therefore solutions exist at the team level.

    My experience is that to delight customers, collaboration is required between teams and departments. This focusing on the parts (individuals and teams) rarely improves the whole, in ways customers will appreciate or pay for.

    We’ll explore this through three lenses.

    Sapiens - How creating a healthy environment unlocks our potential.

    Science - How to Improve our understand...

  • 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’.

    This event will also include a discussion with some fantastic panellists:

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Agenda:
    6.30 - 7.00 Registration, food, networking
    7.00 - 7.20 Welcome & chat about WWCode
    7.20 - 8.20 Core Program
    8.20 - 8.30 Wrap up

  • We don't yet have a speaker organised... so we are open to suggestions!
    But at least there's a marker in your diary for August 25th.
    For now this remains an online group but I hope you agree that the Zoom call(s) have worked well.
    Our grateful thanks again to 34SP.com for hosting these events and to Laura Seaton for controlling the buttons.

    The link for the Zoom call will be added nearer the day.
    Hopefully by then we'll have a speaker too.
    (If not, we'll hold the MeetUp as a Q&A workshop and play it from there.

  • 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.

  • In this online Lean Agile Edinburgh meetup we’ll be shining a spotlight on the Agile Retrospective, in particular how do you run an engaging and effective retrospective remotely. This session will be a mix of short presentations, discussions using the lean coffee formats and sharing tips and tricks. We can cover anything you’d like to cover related to retrospectives including:

    - What are the best formats to use and which ones work best remotely or in different situations?
    - What are the best tools for remote retrospectives?
    - How to encourage participation from all the attendees of a retrospective
    - How to run large scale retrospectives online
    - Common problems and how to deal with them
    Where to get tips and ideas for running engaging retrospectives

    Please feel free to get in touch with us if you’d like to give a short presentation or share a tip as part of this session.

    The zoom link will be shared shortly.

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

    With the current Covid 19 restrictions we will be hosting this as a remote event until further notice and we will be using Zoom and Lean Coffee Table (www.leancoffeetable.com) to collaborate.

    We look forward to the same good discussions and hope this will be an opportunity for the agile community to connect and support each other at a difficult time.

    Learning Objectives:

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

    ● Why is curiosity so important today more than ever

  • 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.

  • Kubernetes with less YAML

    Have you ever just wanted to get your application up and running without needing to get lost in K8s deployment YAML? Can you not just take my application and take care of the "wiring", scaling and serve it?
    A solution to abstract some of the complexity of deploying workloads to K8s away is based around the Knative project which is the basis for Google's Cloud Run - what is it, how can it help and show me it working!

    The Lean Agile Glasgow Team

  • The Future of Work Scotland team are delighted to be bringing you a session with our good friend and author of newly available "The New Normal: AO concepts and patterns of 21st Century Agile Organizations".

    "It took more than ten years for me to allow myself to put my ideas on paper. Behind the fantasy of writing “the game changer, my intention was handing over the relay stick to the community."

    What is Agile? What does it mean “Agile done”? Are there any indicators to get there?

    The new normal initiates the concept of paradigm shift. My session is about explaining how Agile might be part of the solution to design a better future.

    Learning Objectives:

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

    * Get a different interpretation of the very meaning of Agile
    * Get a tool to design the alliance between management, customer and operations
    * Accept that Agile isn't the goal, it is the way to reach a goal
    * Open the door to Agile Organisational Design and continuous re-...

  • 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?
