  • Software testing clinic is coming to Glasgow and we can't wait! Our first session will start with the question what is software testing? It may seem like a simple question, but it's an important one to answer as it determines how you fit within a team and how you carry out your work.

    In this sessions discussion we will cover the following:

    What is testing and what do testers do?
    The misconceptions of software testing and how to overcome them.

  • Join ThoughtWorks & James Lewis on Monday 26th June for his talk on what it means to be #neverdone.

    The software industry is changing faster than ever. Now, with microservices becoming more accepted - the rate of change and the growth of software we write is getting faster.

    James will explore what this means for developer writing code. Do we abandon our quest to build quality in? What does this mean for design? Is TDD dead? Sign up here: info.thoughtworks.com

  • Morning Lean Coffee to discuss our Lean and Agile ideas and challenges. Stickies and sharpies will be provided.

    Arrive at 7:45, grab a coffee and we'll get started at 8.

    Look forward to seeing you there.

  • If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to.

    The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

    This informal get-together is also ideal for anyone who is new to WordPress and looking to find out more. Hear other people share their knowledge and experience, such as:

    - how to know if my WP site is successful?
    - does security really affect my site?
    - tips on making my content (more) engaging
    - making my site work for mobile
    - recommendations on plugins , SEO, accessability
    - and much more ...

    Please note that whilst this meetup is free to attend, it cannot provide consultancy or tailored training. Despite that, we would hope to at least give you a 'steer' in the right direction or an independent opinion on approac...

  • HANDS-ON WORKSHOP AT INTERMEDIATE LEVEL.

    Come at 6:00pm if you need a hand setting up the local development platform.

    Workshop starts at 6:30pm.

    About the workshop:

    Have you found a nearly perfect theme for your website but Customizer doesn't let you change everything you'd like to?

    Do you build WordPress websites for other people and wish you could use your creativity a bit more?

    Child Themes are great for those who want to take WordPress that bit further as they allow you to take an already existing WordPress Theme and change absolutely anything from it.

    Why reinvent the wheel by coding a theme from scratch every time, right?

    We will start by learning about the structure of a WordPress theme and then create our own Child Theme step by step.

    We’ll also learn how to test our site for the various platforms and make sure it is responsive and accessible.

    You will need:

    Bring your laptop if you can but don't worry if you don't have one, we'll pair you up w...
