  • 57North is Aberdeen's Hackerspace and Tuesday is our open night.

    For those of you not in the know, Tuesday evenings are open to anyone
    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • When the time comes that you *need* to use cryptography, it will be too late to learn. Technologies like Tor are not magic bullets, an individual user alone stands out. The use of Tor also stands out and if a user starts to use Tor, this stands out. Cryptonoise is about two things: to provide an oppertunity to learn about cryptographic technologies, and to provide an oppertunity to hide in the crowd.

  • Aberdeen PHP User Group aims to provide a regular meeting for developers in Aberdeen and the surrounding areas to get together and discuss just about anything in and around the PHP Community.

    We 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.

    This month we're going to be doing some coding (hack session) so if you have any web projects you’d like to play with let us know, especially anything with "low hanging" issues for beginners to tackle. Will have some code kata's set up for anyone who doesn't feel like working on the project we choose... but either way you'll be wanting to bring a code editing, internet connected device of some description :slightly_smiling_face: (preferably one with git...)

  • I would like to announce the OSM Day 2017, on Saturday August 12 2017 @
    10AM in 57North Hacklab!

    This year's theme is "On yer bike" - Improving cycle accessibility data
    in Aberdeen.

    What's an OSM day? It's a day of playing with and hacking on Open Street
    Map[1]!

    This event shall provide a reasonably comprehensive introduction to Open
    Street Map for those who are unfamiliar with it.
    Key areas covered will be:
    - What is OSM?
    - How do I contribute?
    - Where can I start?

    For those who already know about OSM, it'll give you an excuse to go and
    get mapping or hack on the map datasets.

    How can I participate?

    There's lots of information about cycle accessibility that OSM can offer
    - pavement ratings, street quality gradings and cycle lane information
    to name a few. Much of this hasn't been filled out in Aberdeen, which
    can make cycle route planning hard! Let's make things a little better by
    improving the map.

    If you know of roads and paths which offer share...

    This month we're having a "How we work" session where everyone is welcome to spend 5, 10 or 15 mins sharing a little bit about how they work. This could be about your workspace set-up, tools, hot drink choice, dev systems, tips, tricks, desk mess, hosting, routines, chairs or whatever you'd like to share!

    Get in touch on twitter/slack/facebook if you are wanting to give us your two cents and we'll save you a slot.

  • FutureScot is pleased to announce Digital Cities 2017 - a series of policy conferences taking place across Scotland this summer, coming to Aberdeen on June 6.

    Aimed at policy, academic, technology and business leaders, six half-day events will take place in Dundee and Perth // Aberdeen // Glasgow // Stirling // Edinburgh // Inverness



    Aberdeen

    Featuring a range of prominent speakers, the objective of these events is to equip leaders with the tools they need to further unlock the potential of digital in their cities.

    Supporting communities of digital talent in Scotland's major cities has been given added impetus following the recent publication of the Scottish Government's A Digital Strategy for Scotland.

    Importantly, Digital Cities 2017 will provide useful local feedback following a nationwide health check on Scotland's digital cities carried out by Nesta - the innovation foundation.

    The event's Digital Showcase also exposes local government and public sector agenc...
