  • 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...

    -----------

    Introduction to the Raspberry Pi

    The Raspberry Pi is a small single-board computer for students, hobbyists, artists and hackers. The latest version, the Raspberry Pi 3, costs only about £30, and comes with built-in wi-fi and Bluetooth. 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 then demo a number of projects that the Raspberry Pi can be used for, including a web server, a home media centre, a time-lapse video camera, and a fully functional Amazon Alexa speaker. We’ll then aim to have a hands-on session, where people can get into small groups, and try some simple programming on a Raspberry Pi. If you already have experience with the Raspberry Pi, feel free to get in touch with me in advance of the talk, and let me know what you’ve alrea...

  • CodeCraftConf is the software craftsmanship conference that puts confer back into conference.
    No presentations: just guided conversations and workshops on the hottest topics in software development amongst your peers.

    Traditionally conferences feature a set of talks given by speakers, where you consume their thoughts and perhaps get a chance to ask a question at the end.

    This conference will be different.

    In small groups, we will have guided conversations around the latest topics of interest to software developers. We'll provide the guide, and you'll provide your thoughts. We will all learn from each other.

    Join us on Friday 15th September 2017 for a day of conversations and workshops.

  • The next Glasgow ML Club meet-up. More information to follow.

  • Kimberly will discuss stored procedure caching and the potential for performance problems due to a problem known as parameter sniffing. There are some common solutions and while they can drastically improve performance, they can also cause other problems. Sometimes a hybrid solution is needs, from this session, you’ll know the best way to write procedures so that stable requests are cached and unstable requests are not (giving you the most optimal performance without wasting resources).

  • Talk description coming soon!

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