  • 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...

  • For July 2019, Thomas Kluyver will be giving us a rundown of the state of open source smartphones!

    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?

  • 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.

  • We'll be meeting at Milnes bar on Hanover 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.

  • This is our monthly informal gathering - just turn up, grab a drink, sit down and start talking UX! If you haven't been before you'll find us on the right as you come in, opposite the bar.

    Check out our new discussions board! Feel free to post anything here that you think will be of interest to the group e.g. thoughts/questions related to UX, details of relevant events, local job postings etc.

  • Monthly talks by local hackers.
