  • Access All Areas Hackathon
    Making every day more accessible through innovation
    Wednesday, 25 October 2017, 8.00-20.00
    O2 campus, Slough
    =======================================

    Nearly one in five people in the country have a disability that limits their daily activities. This is why it’s important to consider accessibility in the design of all products and services. Innovation has an important role to play in this.

    To inspire innovative thinking on accessibility, The Lab at O2 is organising a hackathon with our charity partners to give you the opportunity to spend a day collaborating with like-minded people from diverse backgrounds to explore the problems people face and find innovative ways to help.

  • If you’re less than 19 years old and interested in learning to code, or already know how and want to go even further, you’re in the right place! Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.
    Prewired provides an unstructured but supportive environment for under 19s to explore and learn about computer programming and related topics. We have mentors from university and industry with a wide variety of skills who volunteer their time because they love to teach young people about computing.
    Prewired is also a place for young people to meet peers with shared interests which they can develop together. For some, it can be difficult to interest friends and family in computing, which may lead to a feeling of isolation. It can be hard to figure out where to go next when there’s no-one you can ask. We want to let young people know that there’s a huge community of like-minded people who are waiting to welcom...

    Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.
    Wednesday evenings are for you to play around with whatever technologies and programming languages you want. You can learn something brand new, practice something you already know, start a project, get help with something you're stuck on, or even teach others.
    Last year we've had people working on basic Python, Python games, websites (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), Java, Scratch and Arduinos.
    If there are different topics, languages or technologies you want to cover, just let us know!
    Please sign up for as many sessions as you can. Coming regularly makes it easier to make friends and do as much coding as possible :)

    Resources
    Please bring your own laptops if you can, as you'll be able to get to work a lot faster on a system you're familiar with. We do have spares, but bring one if you can.
    There will be some very light refreshments,...

  • OGTC have kindly offered to host the ATEC in their brand new Innovation space. A great space and some great tech and knowledge management tools to try out.

    The central part of this evening's session will be a detailed view of the Intelligent Plant app marketplace that is based in Aberdeen.

    The widely cited Carre & Strauss IoT roadmap estimates that 30% - 40% of the revenue into the IoT value chain goes to the providers of the core platforms and applications. This represents a huge opportunity for entrepreneurial programmers working with platforms provided by companies like Intelligent Plant. Come along and learn how it works!

    Please remember that Aberdeen City Council are at the forefront of providing open data with the way that they have broken the mould and designed their LRWAN. These opportunities are right on your doorstep in more ways than one.

  • Please join us for an evening of mob programming

    Mob programming is a collaborative approach to software development, where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time on the same computer. To quote Woody Zuill: “All the brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and on the same computer”. This workshop will give participants a taster of what it is like to program in this way.

    The session will be a hands on coding kata that participants will work on collaboratively as a mob, working on one machine.

  • A bi-monthly event in Sheffield where we invite speakers from around the country to come and talk about their experiences in UX research and design projects.

    With many VR applications being built and companies dipping their toe in the VR water we are seeing that many of these have a poor user experience. As with any service, it’s important to consider the basic principles when designing for VR. Based on our experiences from testing with users, we’ll talk about some of the UX principles to consider when creating a VR app.

  • When the time comes that you *need* to use cryptography, it will be too late to learn. Technologies like Tor are not magic bullets, an individual user alone stands out. The use of Tor also stands out and if a user starts to use Tor, this stands out. Cryptonoise is about two things: to provide an oppertunity to learn about cryptographic technologies, and to provide an oppertunity to hide in the crowd.

  • Join us at our next JBUG Scotland event on the 25th October where Martin Percival and Ian Lawson – Solutions Architects at Red Hat – will be running a session on the role of JBoss in IoT and presenting us with an update on the application runtimes (Vertx, Wildfly, Swarm and Spring Boot) running on OpenShift.

  • In this months Agile Sheffield Meetup we're going to be talking about backlogs.

    Product backlogs, sprint backlogs, team backlogs, release backlogs and any other backlog you can think of.

    We're going to explore what they are, how they're created, how we use them.

    As is becoming the norm, this is going to be a bit more than just getting talked at. So make sure you bring your thinking heads with you and get ready to get stuck in. But don't worry, there will be the usual refreshments provided so I'm sure things won't get too heavy!

    If you have a backlog at work, it would be great if you could take a picture of it (or screen grab if its virtual) and send it to me so that we can compare a few different backlogs - what they comprise of, their size, how they're used etc.

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

  • Presentation 1

    Prof Bill Buchanan OBE, PhD, FBCS (www.linkedin.com) -Data, Health and Well-being: Security, Sharing and Analytics

    This Meetup will outline how data can drive improved health care and well-being, and outline a range of research projects which use data as a key driver for improved care. This includes data capture of well-being information within the home, and how this can be used to detect citizens at risk. The event will also outline new architectures and methodologies for the sharing of health and social care data across the agencies involved within the care of the citizen. Along with this, though, there are increased requirements to integrate security into data capture, storage, analysis and reporting. The security and resilience issue will be heightened with forthcoming GDPR and NIS regulations, and where organisations need to look at new methods in protecting their data infrastructure.

    Bill Buchanan is a Professor in the School of Computing...

  • Are we at a tipping point for online abuse? Will killer robots change policing? How are extremists using the Internet and can we do anything about it? Is the Internet empowering the marginalised or the most powerful? How are the online rights of people of colour, women, and other marginalised groups being disproportionately affected by regressive laws and online abuse? What are the surveillance developments we should be worrying about next? How can open data transform government? Does the age verification of porn put our privacy and free speech at risk?

    These are some of the questions we will be asking at ORGCon 2017. Our amazing line up of writers, technologists and experts will look at the threats we face and what we can do about them. But we'll also be talking about how the Internet has changed politics and campaigning for the good, and how we can harness this to give ordinary citizens a voice, and help to hold the powerful to account.

    We're not centred around specific languages, technologies or disciplines; we believe there's stuff to learn from mixing everyone together. There's no cost to attend, and food and drink are provided.

  • If you are interested in learning to knit, crochet, or sew, or if you already know how to do it and you would like to meet other people and craft socially come on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month to Swansea Hackspace!

    The idea is to create a friendly and inclusive place for everyone interested in crafts to nurture their creativity! we hope that with enough interest we can organize yarn-bombing activities around the city!

    You can buy fairly cheap material from Swansea Market to start with, and we have a small selection of material in stock on the day if you if you don't have any yourself. If you are looking to learn try to choose bright coloured thick yarn (acrylic is perfect to learn on) and large knitting needles or crochet hooks! If you are already a knitter or a crocheter bring your project with you for everyone to admire and get inspired!

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

    Look forward to seeing you there.

  • If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to.

    The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

    This informal get-together is also ideal for anyone who is new to WordPress and looking to find out more. Hear other people share their knowledge and experience, such as:

    - how to know if my WP site is successful?
    - does security really affect my site?
    - tips on making my content (more) engaging
    - making my site work for mobile
    - recommendations on plugins , SEO, accessability
    - and much more ...

    Please note that whilst this meetup is free to attend, it cannot provide consultancy or tailored training. Despite that, we would hope to at least give you a 'steer' in the right direction or an independent opinion on approac...

  • "The scene at an algorave is often what you'd expect from any good techno night - a dark room, engaging visuals. a decent, bass-heavy speaker set-up, and lots of people ready to dance. .. performers at algoraves respond to each other and the audience in real time, often projecting the lines of code onto the walls as they type. lt’s coding as improvisation and experiment.." - The Wire magazine

    Algorave is a combination of "algorithms" and "rave", the opportunity to dance to alien rhythms and visuals, all created from code before your eyes. The Algorave scene is fast-growing, informally coordinated from Sheffield, and reaching over 50 cities over five years.

    At AlgoMech 2017 we aim to take Algorave to the next level, bringing together some of the best algorithmic (and mechanical) dance music producers and VJs, playing over Sheffield's fiendish DangerNoise soundsystem, with immersive projections covering the walls of Millennium Gallery. As with the rest of the festival we'll be mix...

  • Roller Derby is an assertive team sport which is played on roller skates and requires large amounts of skill, agility and flexibility. This talk will delve into the world of Roller Derby and what is necessary for team success. It uses Roller Derby to illustrate how behaviours we think are useful can sometimes be harmful and this leads to a discussion of patterns and anti-patterns in Agile software development.

    This talk would be useful to team members, people who manage software teams and anyone who wants to learn more about roller derby! They will leave with an understanding of what good looks like as well as a list of anti-patterns to watch out for.

    About our speaker
