  • After a long break that disrupted us a little (can you guess what was the cause?), we're back with another event! Join us on November 26th 2020 at 5:30PM on Zoom for our November meetup!

    Here's what we have in store:
    * Kyle Usher from Nesta will speak about 'How Startups and Charities work closer together and collaborate'. He's done a lot of great work in this area in and outside of Nesta so it'll be a great talk!

    * Project updates! You'll hear how our projects with Drake Music and YoungScot are doing. We'll also announce a few new projects that are just starting! There will be opportunities to volunteer and take part!

    * New initiatives! We've been listening and learning and are cooking something up around supporting charities with fundraising!

    * Opportunity for charities to request help and seek advice with most pressing digital challenges

    See you then!

    Note: We'll send you the Zoom link closer to the event, after you signed up!

  • December's event will be a quiz centred around all things open source!

    Open to all levels of knowledge, from newcomers to old-hands, there will be something for all to discover :-)

    Programme:

    19:00 - Meet online, announcements; links.taikedz.net
    19:15 - start quiz
    20:00 - closing notes, Q&A roundtable

    The Q&A session allows online attendees to ask questions about Linux, Open Source, recommendations, etc; and any member can answer or chip in.

  • This meetup will take place online via Zoom, starting at 6.30pm.

    If you're new to the group and/or would like to meet up for some chat beforehand I'll be around from 6pm onwards. Please feel free to drop in and say hello.

    This month we welcome not just one, but TWO fantastic speakers.

    Anne Dhir is Head of Strategy at Snook. Anne will be talking to us about what happens when service design, data analytics and policy making come together to deliver social impact.

    Angus Addlesee is a PhD researcher, working to adapt voice assistants to be more accessible for people with dementia. He will talk about this project and many of the other interesting projects that will be presented at the upcoming European Chatbot and Conversational Summit.

  • We usually run monthly talks in a pub but we don't really feel like going out right now.

  • Following on from our successful event in September looking at online retros we're picking up on the idea of trying our different ice breaker/energiser formats together. We have some already but need more from the community too, we can then talk about different ones we have found and try some out together, if we get enough people we'll break into groups. If you have tried any successful online icebreaker formats recently please pop the details on the Trello Board (or submit to the board via the email address)

    Email for Trello Board: lazallen+vbulownmpdya1nrblvq6@boards.trello.com

    Ideally, we're looking for ones that can be used with minimal preparation by the facilitator or participants - so we focus on ones you can "pull out of your hat" when needed.

    We will not be recording the session as this one will be (hopefully) highly interactive. If you just want to o...
