You may be mature in your devops adoption, maybe your local tech press refers to you as a unicorn.

    This is a story of how devops was brought into one such pocket, not by a top down strateg...

  • Stories? Scenarios? BDD? Are these just more words in the ever-growing list of jargon that developers have to know? Or are they something more important than new terms to memorise?

    In this session we'll look at how BDD fits into the software development work-flow, how to tell user stories through features, and how to automate them in Behat.

    These techniques will help to ensure you're writing well designed and tested software that focuses on what the users want from a system.

  • ML Club part deux...

    Hopefully everybody who wants to take part in ML Club is now in a team and ready to build some products.

    - Introduce the team;
    - Describe the problem you’ve decided to solve;

  • 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:
