  • Following January’s book club, we’ve decided that for our February event we’re going to give the community an opportunity to discuss the topics that matter most to them. That’s right, it’s time for some Lean Coffee!

    Rather than us dictate a topic, bring along whatever questions you want answered, topics you want to discuss, and issues you feel the need to chat about. We’ll use the Lean Coffee format to cover the things that you, the attendees, want to get into the most.

    It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to the industry or experienced, whether you want to ask a question about starting in IT or the ethics behind AI trade-offs, there’ll be the opportunity to engage with your peers on anything you like.

    It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a topic, you may be able to provide valuable perspective for others, or learn something new by just listening. It also doesn’t matter if you don’t know the Lean Coffee format, it’s simple and we’ll take the time to explain it before we get sta...

    # How the event works

    After we have decided on some challenges for the evening, we break into small groups (2-4 people) and see how far we can get. After about 90 minutes we get together and share what we have learnt, showing code and demo's of it in action. # Requirements

    If you have a laptop with a working Clojure environment please bring it along. As we arrange ourselves into small groups, if you don't have a laptop you can still join in.

  • Building an effective analytics team / Uplift Modelling: Spend Less & Sell More

    Presentation 1 - Building an effective analytics team - Elizabeth Hollinger - Head of Analytics & BI at Aggreko

    www.linkedin.com

    The adoption of analytics has accelerated over the last decade, and most organisations have created or developed an analytics function to drive insight from data. However, organisations often face challenges in being able to deliver true business value through their analytics team, and it can be difficult to obtain the right blend of skills to make sure the team is set up for success. In this talk, I’ll share my experience of working in analytics functions in both consulting and in industry and will share thoughts on what creates an effective analytics team, considering the important skills and capabilities that can drive success and add true value to an organisation.

    Elizabeth is the Head of Analytics and BI for Aggreko, and lea...

  • M5Stack Workshop presented by Glasgow Makers and Hardware Hackers

    M5stack (m5stack.com) is a modular programmable prototyping device which has the ESP32 at its core. M5stack can be programmed with the arduino IDE, esp-idf, micropython and more. In this workshop we will be focusing on using block programming to control the light, sound, images on the screen, sensors etc. To take part, the only thing you need to bring along is a laptop.

    This workshop is suited for anyone, even those who are taking their first steps in coding, and maybe are put off by thinking they have to learn lots of typed commands to do even the most basic of things. The Uiflow interface for M5stack (flow.m5stack.com) is designed to lower the creative barrier so that anyone without prior knowledge can get setup making their first IoT application in minutes.

    This workshop is free but there are limited spaces so please sign up for a place here: www.eventbrite.co.uk...

  • This event is all about #TartanTeamwork!

    Effective teamwork comes about with the right tools, the right people, and the right practices. If you are an Atlassian customer, tools such as Jira and Confluence form an essential part of the teamwork formula.

    Industry events such as Atlassian Summit are a great opportunity to be inspired and gain product insights from Atlassian staff, partners, and product evangelists. Until now, the majority of events in the UK have taken place in London and the South East.

    As Scotland’s only Atlassian Solution Partner, we’re delighted to launch this brand new event in Scotland. Join our team along with other Scottish businesses that rely on Atlassian solutions to inspire effective teamwork!

  • We discuss, demonstrate and debate how to write well-structured, malleable software

    We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month

    We are a nomadic meetup: the location (within Glasgow) changes every month. We try to run in office spaces around the city, but occasionally meet in a pub; there is no expectation or pressure to drink alcohol when we do soself. We’ll explain the format (Guided Conversations), and make sure everyone keeps up with the discussion.

  • Do you want to set your website project up for success? Do you want to avoid any costly surprises along the way?

    Of course, you do.

    A thorough, focused web specification document will keep your web project running smoothly and, most importantly, will give you the best to chance of delivering a project that meets the goals of your visitors and your business.

    This talk is inspired by Mark's most successful blog post: highrise.digital

  • * WordPress Helpdesk *

    If you have a WordPress site and you've got a bug or there is something you are not quite sure how to do, come and meet the WordPress professionals who may be able to help you or point you in the right direction.

    Given that WordPress 5.0 is likely to have been released before the end of 2018, there will be a special focus on working on Gutenberg-related queries.

    If you are a WordPress professional and can spare a couple of hours every 3 months, come along to give some guidance to people who are learning or are stuck and need advice.

    Please note that the organising team expects all advice to be given for free and in good faith but, if something is too big to fix there and then the WordPress professional will have the right to say so.

    * Networking *

    A meeting point for WordPress developers and web designers looking for their next project or collaboration and for people who have a project and would like to meet a WordPress professional.
