  • www.eventbrite.co.uk

  • Who is this for?

    This event is free to attend for startups, entrepreneurs and anyone else interested in why building a Minimum Viable Product can be such a successful route when building a digital product. The idea behind an MVP is to prove your concept with an initial version of your product which has enough features to satisfy early adopters.

    What is the format?

    We will begin the event with an informal networking session, followed by a short introduction from Bad Dinosaur. This will be followed by a series of short talks from entrepreneurs and startups who have gone through the MVP process and a chance for some Q&A. Afterwards will be a second chance for networking.

    Bad Dinosaur is a software development company based in Edinburgh. Our mission is to provide a complete service for anyone who wants to build a digital product, taking you from an idea in your head to your first paying customers and beyond.

    Don't worry, refreshments and wifi will be provided.

  • Agenda:
    6:30pm - 7pm: Refreshments and networking
    7:00pm - 7:50pm: 1st talk Scottish Government Virtualizes Critical Legacy Apps in VMware Cloud on AWS

    Neill Smith, Head of Infrastructure at the Directorate for Agriculture and Rural Economy will walk us through ARE's desire to embrace a modern hybrid cloud strategy. This was complicated by many mission-critical, legacy applications and Oracle databases that were perceived to be impossible to virtualize or move to the cloud due to their dependence on legacy technologies such as the SPARC/Solaris platform, Oracle Database 10g, and Oracle APEX. ARE virtualised their legacy application stacks using VMware vSphere, and leveraged VMware HCX and VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) as a disaster recovery platform. ARE proved that even the most stubborn legacy applications can be a good fit for a hybrid cloud environment built on the strong technological foundations provided by AWS and VMware.

    Title: Two philosophers walk into a bar
    Synopsis: In 2015 I moved from Australia to start a PhD in philosophy at The University of Edinburgh. By 2017 I had withdrawn and did not have much of a life plan beyond wanting to stay here in Edinburgh. It was then that a friend, also an ex-philosopher, began to talk to me about programming. Now I am working as a backend developer, learning data engineering on the job, and studying part-time for a Data Science Masters. I would like to talk about some of the experiences that gave me the confidence to make those decisions for myself and how I feel about the transitions I've made.

  • Hi all,

    Welcome to (what was going to be) our October meeting. Why in November, you (justifiably) ask?

    Because the world’s biggest Visualisation conference, VIS 2019 [ ieeevis.org ] clashes with our normal slot and - since several of our members are attending - we thought it would be a good idea to postpone a little and take the opportunity to hear some first hand reports on the latest developments.

    Zhutian Chen will be hotfoot back from having presented no less than three papers. Zhutian, a Hong Kong Univ of Science & Tech PhD student, is currently visiting Edinburgh. A member of HKUST VisLab, his research spans infovis, AR, and ML. Specifically, he is working on tools and techniques powered by deep learning for computer vision to facilitate the creation of visualizations in and for AR environments. [ chenzhutian.org ]

    Ben Bach will tell us about his conference presentation, and he and we hope one or two others will talk about their wider experience of the conference and what most...

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.

  • 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...
