  • Founders of the Future is back with another hackathon!

    Once again we will gather around 100 people to spend 48 hours identifying problems, talking to potential users, building MVPs and pitching to a panel of founders, executive and VCs. All while forming teams and learning to work with complete strangers, building strong relationships with like-minded people along the way.

    We find this experience to be an amazing learning experience which helps us in our mission to help future founders in their journey to become tech entrepreneurs.

    Another part of our mission is to make sure that the next generation of founders builds high impact sustainable companies and we believe that carefully choosing the theme of a hackathon can help us do that to.

    This is why we are really proud to partner with RBS and Innovate Finance to deliver the Financial Inclusion Hack. A 48-hour hackathon to build tech solutions to bank the unbanked.

    Applications to participate are now open, so if this soun...

    When Apple launched the iPhone in 2007, phones completed a journey from appliances to pocket computers. Over three quarters of adults in the UK own a smartphone. But it’s difficult to run free, open source applications and operating systems on your phone, or to get a phone with open hardware and firmware. How open are the big smartphone platforms? What are the various projects aiming to make our phones more open? And what are Purism doing with the $2 million they raised by crowdfunding for the Librem 5?

    Agile, punk, community and rebellion.
    After Lean Agile Scotland 2017 Mike Hill tweeted, “The agile movement is skilled at rebellion and community”. It was at that moment I realised why I felt at home here.

    As someone who played music in the Do-It-Yourself Punk scene of the 1990’s I could see many of the same structures, behaviours and philosophies mirrored in our Agile community. The question in common is, “how do we create something, ethically, with the minimum amount of waste?”

  • Swirrl and Scottish Government Talk DATA....

    The Scottish Government is making our rich public sector data open for social and economic good. In statistics.gov.scot, we have an open data portal that can be used for free, by anyone and without restriction. It contains a wealth of information that describes our country and how it is changing.

    For data experts, this includes API access as standard, to our 5* linked open data. This data infrastructure is used by Official Statistics producers from public bodies across Scotland to disseminate the information that they create. We have committed, in the Open Government Action Plan, to increase the amount of public sector data published as open data, and to make this information easier to find, understand and reuse.

    Outline for the talk:

    • What the site is
    • What's in there
    • What the opportunities are for analysts to use it
    • Example applications

    Avoiding ’banana skins’
    Using some simple methods, it's possible to avoid those painful moments where everyone is on the same page - until they're not. Avoiding 'banana skins' is a short talk to help with creating clear direction for, and alignment across, your digital products.

    Calum is a Strategist and Product manager and has been inspiring me for years.

    Agile, punk, community and rebellion.
    After Lean Agile Scotland 2017 Mike Hill tweeted, “The agile movement is skilled at rebellion and community”. It was at that moment I realised why I felt at home here.

    As someone who played music in the Do-It-Yourself Punk scene of the 1990’s I could see many of the same structures, behaviours and philosophies mirrored in our Agile community. The question in common is, “how do we create something, ethically, with the minimum amount of waste?”

    So, if the approaches and human behaviours of a collectiv...

  • Welcoming anyone involved or working in technology.

    TechMeetup is a monthly excuse for developers and the tech community around Scotland to meet up and learn new stuff from each other. No name badges, no sales pitches, just informative presentations from your peers and a chance to meet some of the tech community around you.

    We're not centred around specific languages, technologies or disciplines; we believe there's stuff to learn from mixing everyone together. There's no cost to attend, and food and drink are provided.

  • 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.

  • 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.
