  • We meet weekly in the Saltire Centre at GCU to code socially on a drop-in basis 6.30pm+

    Our meets are informal and friendly. We encourage anyone with the smallest shred of interest in learning to experienced developers, and everyone in between to come along to our meets or hang out in our Facebook group or Slack.

    We love Sharing resources, be it tutorials, events, jobs...

    The format at meets is casual with no set time that members have to stay but we try to ensure that at least one core member has arrived for 6.30 and claimed one of the brightly coloured study pods on the ground floor.

    Members can work on tutorials/projects, get/give advice, chat ... You can even plug your earphones in if you want some peace to focus. Members can be as productive or non-productive as they want, but you will need a laptop if you want to code.

    We occasionally venture out to other tech meets (our so called "group outings" simply because there's lots of good events on and we want to go to s...

  • Bots, Burnout and Blame: Using technology to build better organisations
    Matthew Bellringer

    Free and Open to All. Refreshments at 1830, Talk at 1900.

    Synopsis ::
    In our working lives we have tools that would seem magical to employees a hundred years ago. The small computers we keep in our pockets connect us immediately to most of the combined knowledge of humanity. Our working conditions have improved immeasurably. We sit in air conditioned offices, no longer toiling in coal mines and factories. Despite this, levels of anxiety and depression amongst employees is at an all-time high. The unhealthy psychological environment which gives rise to this suffering leads to poor decision-making and organisational failure.

    This talk identifies the key personal and organisational factors which give rise to workplace stress, and what can be done about them. It highlights research which suggests that the most effective organisations are not the most stressful, and that high performance is...

    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.

  • * 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.

  • This coming February 2019, various WordPress meetups throughout the UK are organising events to help raise awareness of mental health and related issues within the community.

    The WordPress Glasgow meetup has joined the initiative and, although we don't have precise details of what the event will look like yet, we are currently thinking it will be something in the lines of a talk, a round table and/or open discussion.

    We will keep you updated!

    In the meantime, please get in touch at [masked] if you would like to propose any ideas or get involved in organising this event.

    Also, please check out the WP&UP (wpandup.org) and the Geek Mental Health Week (geekmentalhelp.com) websites for related information.

  • 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!
