  • Build Your Own Reality!

    Have you been dreaming about VR since you were wee, or are you wondering what all the fuss is about? Either way there’s no ignoring virtual reality right now. The good news is you don’t need to spend loads of money on special hardware to give it a go. With a simple cardboard viewer you can turn your smartphone into a VR headset and step into another world. So how would you like to make your very own world and get right inside it?

    In this workshop I’ll introduce some open source technologies for building VR experiences that run in the browser on a smartphone or any of the VR platforms available today. Then you’ll get started on hacking your own reality! Along the way you’ll learn some fundamental principles that apply to developing VR experiences on any platform.

    All you need to bring is a laptop and a smartphone. If you already have a viewer or headset then you can bring it along, but don’t worry if you don’t as we will provide some viewers for you to use. Yo...

  • Hi Folks,

    We're looking to experiment with an additional meet up this month. This time we're planning on running it in the morning (7:45 till 8:45) using our favourite facilitation technique Lean Coffee... this time with actual coffee and not beer as is often the case. This will hopefully give those of us who find the evening meetup tricky to attend the opportunity to get together with others and discuss our issues and ideas.

    As it's an awkward time, some will have morning schedules that mean they'll arrive later or have to leave earlier for meetings we'd like to adopt the "come when you can, leave when you must, ethos.

    Many thanks to Caroline McDowall for suggesting and for organising.

    Hope to see you there
    Chris

  • Please ensure you arrive before 6:30pm, entry afterwards is extremely unlikely.

    Agenda:

    18:00 - Networking / Pizza / Beer
    18:30 - TBD
    19:15 - Super SaltStack by Glynn Forrest
    20:15 - Networking

    Super SaltStack-Event Driven Orchestration & Configuration Management

    Salt, Puppet, Chef, Ansible - which one to choose?

    Learn what makes SaltStack stand out from other configuration management solutions, and how you can use the built-in orchestration engine, event bus, reactor, cloud, beacons, and much more, to take your operations to the next level.

    We'll see how to get started in less than 5 minutes, and look at some good practices to follow as your infrastructure grows. We'll go beyond configuration management and look into reacting to incidents, self healing-infrastructure, auto-scaling, and other use cases.

    We'll also examine some of Salt's weaknesses, and where other tools can be used as inspiration for improvement.

  • With fake news and emissions tests in the headlines the ethics of software development are being called into question. Software is increasingly affecting people's lives and, with the internet of things and driverless cars, it's no longer confined to the virtual world. Our industry is on the brink of challenges which will be very disruptive and very unpleasant and which will test us as we’ve never been challenged.

    Doctors, lawyers, architects and engineers all face a similar challenge regarding the consequences of their actions and have professional certifications and codes of conduct.

    In this session we will be discussing what it means to be a recognised professional and what steps, as industry, we can take to move in this direction. Join us at 6pm in FanDuel's offices in Glasgow to take part in the discussion.

  • Being a founder of a startup isn’t easy. As a founder you’ll likely experience highs and lows; a real rollercoaster of emotions. That is why support and regular contact with fellow founders is invaluable.

    The meetup is a platform for the Scottish startup community to interact on a regular basis. The RookieOven meetup in a monthly opportunity to meet fellow founders in a relaxed environment. Share experience, soak up advice, connect and collaborate.

    At the meetup there are no talks, presentations or set agendas just great conversations between Scottish startup founders, employees and enthusiasts.

  • This month we're meeting up to grab a drink and a chat about all things technology, hacking and infosec. All welcome!

    We will be upstairs in the Raven, in the Crow's nest.

    We will have 2-3 talks this month

    Title to be confirmed - Rab Ray & Sean Kornish

    Hacking Stuff for Fun and Profit - Andy Gill

  • As always we'll use the Lean Coffee format, stickies and sharpies will be provided.

    Look forward to seeing you there.

  • Hey there,

    We're having a meet just to work on our own projects. We'll sit together with our laptops around a big table and make the magic happen!

    It'll give us the opportunity to bounce questions and answers, get the group to check things out there and then. If one of us is wondering how to do something or which is the best plugin for a particular functionality, perhaps somebody else has done it already and they can share their experience.

    Come join us, let's make something great !!!

  • Speaker 1 - Rob McLeod - Comet Global Consulting -

    Head of Digital and Customer Experience -www.linkedin.com

    “I have an opportunity for you…”

    That’s a phrase I’ve come to reflect on as a firm retort to fellow marketers who drear at the changes experienced in the consumer sphere in recent times. When you look at some of the headlines of data-driven perspectives on consumer finances today you really can’t help but be overcome by “doom and gloom”:

    aging population

    move from buying to renting

    “polarisation” of population

    generation gap

    tech changes and automation

    loss of confidence in financial suppliers

    But when you challenge what consumer data really tells us, I’m not hearing necessarily that the future will be worse – rather that it will most certainly be different.

    Rob will be here to discuss these points in details - See full blog - www.cometgc.com
