  • Queer Code Scotland is a new meetup bringing together LGBTQ+ people with an interest in technology.

    Speaker: Alison Aird

    "The Raspberry Pi is a small single-board computer for students, hobbyists, artists and hackers.

    In this talk, I will show how you can download the latest version of the Raspbian operating system, and get started with the Raspberry Pi. I will show how it is very easy to set up interactive projects, even with no prior electronics knowledge, using an add-on "Sense" board that can be programmed with Python.

    I will demo a number of projects using the Raspberry Pi, including a retro gaming system, a web server, a time-lapse video camera, a Pi-powered Amazon Alexa speaker, and a robot. We’ll then aim to have a hands-on session, where people can get into small groups, view the demos in more detail, and optionally, try some simple programming on a Raspberry Pi."

    Code of conduct: queer-code.org

    Food and drink will be provided, and there will be a chance to c...

  • In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed the scale of surveillance by corporate and government bodies on the data we generate online every time we simply browse, post on social media, buy things, talk to family and friends, publish and research. What that might say about our patterns of behaviour, personality, beliefs and ideas are of great interest to many who might seek to make predictions and influence. How does this level of actual or perceived digital surveillance affect behaviour? Have writers now become less willing to research and discuss certain topics?

    In 2018, Scottish PEN in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, published a report, Scottish Chilling: Impact of Government and Corporate Surveillance on Writers, which sought to address this question. Based on a survey of 118 writers in Scotland, this ground-breaking study looked at the question of self-censorship among writers and what limitations that placed on their work. This not only affects their own freedom of enqui...

    Whatever your level - you are very welcome to come along. We'll find some time to answer questions and if you are able to help newcomers with any issues they might have, all the better!

  • Presentation Title - DevOps At Amazon

    Speaker - Ricardo Sueiras - Cloud Evangelist at AWS

    We are delighted to host our 2nd event of the year.
