    Regular social outing for Edinburgh game devs to meet other local game devs and chat about game dev (and other things, nobody's fussy).

  • We've been informed that ONE Tech Hub, our venue are closing Studios One and Two until the end of April 2020.

    This event will not go ahead on the planned date. We're looking at options such as running it at the May date, assuming we get an all clear for then. We will announce that ASAP.

    =================================

    This will be a joint event with the Project Data Analytics group who are now running their own meet-ups in Aberdeen

    Pizza, beer and networking 6.30pm. Speakers from 7pm.

    Talk 1 - "Can we reinvent how we deliver projects by leveraging data?" - Stephen Ashley / Andrew Buchan and Martin Paver

    Imagine a future where we can securely pool project delivery data for the benefit of all. Where we reduce the barriers to entry for innovators. Where we begin to value the hard won experience that is codified in data and facilitate access to data to help drive AI based insights. The Oil and Gas Authority, Oil and Gas Technology Centre and Projecting Success will be sharing some...

    What started as a prototype in 2017 has become one of the hottest technologies in the .NET ecosystem. Blazor is Microsoft’s new front-end framework for building single page applications using C#, not JavaScript. That’s right, C# running in your browser.

  • 57North is Aberdeen's Hackerspace and Tuesday is our open night.

    For those of you not in the know, Tuesday evenings are open to anyone
    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • This month, Nick Jones will be giving us a talk on his bunker server farm, "Sausage Cloud!"

    "From hosting QuakeWorld servers in the late 90s to running my own public cloud platform today, Linux and other free Unix-like operating systems have always empowered me to run my own services. In this talk I’ll cover a bit of history - what it took to run Infrastructure-as-a-Service in the early 2000s versus today - and why someone might be crazy enough to continue do such a thing.

    "I’ll also cover the deployment specifics of this relatively small cloud platform that I run as a hobby project, using spare hardware cobbled together from various places, lashed together with Linux.”

    To do this, we will use the hosted edition of Jitsi Meet, an open source web conferencing solution. Currently it has problems with Firefox unfortunately [1] so could participants please use Chromium, or Chrome, to connect, otherwise the meeting could be degraded for everybody...

  • Join us in our monthly meetup to discuss: the current state of digital rights, what we've done in the past month, and what we are planning to do in the upcoming months (local events to attend or events we organise). Maybe a member will give a short (15 - 30 minute) briefing on a topical subject at the beginning of the meeting (e.g. on UK / international legislation, topical privacy or security things such as, say, leaks of medical records).

    To find out more about our topics and ORG's work in general go to:

  • The coronavirus outbreak has forced many organisations to stress-test working from home at its most extreme.

    Alongside this, we must not forget that isolation may be a completely new and daunting experience for some. It's a topic of discussion that is paramount to gauge how we're all dealing with this Pandemic.

    That's why the YCSC has been working hard planning a first of its kind webinar hosted by our chair, Melanie Oldham, alongside Gary Hibberd and our Steering Committee.

  • Many people will be used to seeing or using a Kanban board however Kanban is more than a board. The intention for this meetup is to introduce you to both visual management and to the power of limiting work in progress. If there is time, we can also look at some of the metrics available and also some of the Kanban practices and principles.
    This session is highly interactive and collaborative, whilst also being conducted fully remote using the latest version of Featureban online.

    Featureban is a simple, fun, and now also online, Kanban simulation game. Since its creation in 2014 it has been used by trainers and coaches in Lean, Agile and Kanban-related events the world over.
    The game starts simple with visual management (iteration 1); after that we layer on things like WIP limits and metrics.

    NOTE: the online tool we'll be using works better on a desktop or tablet. It's recommended that you avoid using a mobile phone to use the tool.

    Sheffield Hackspace is a non-profit, member-run hackspace for central Sheffield. Together we’re building a workshop and community to help people get involved in “the creative use of technology and tools for projects in fields such as computing, robotics, machining, technology, digital art or electronic art“.

    We’re interested in whatever our members are interested in! Such as electronics (including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and ESP8266), 3D printing and CAD, laser cutting, textiles (including clothing and kites), crafts, woodwork and metalwork, LoRaWAN and IoT, robotics and machine learning, photography...

    We’re always keen for new people to join who can swap ideas, learn from each other, and build new things. All skill levels welcome!

    Additionally we’re open every other Saturday from 11am - 6pm, and check out our website www.sheffieldhackspace.org.uk for info on the various interest groups that meet throughout the week.

  • Sometimes the formality of meetups is too much. This group exists to socialize and show off your latest piece of hardware. If it's a simple Arduino based thingamabob or your company's newest hardware product (and how you earn your living), you should consider attending. The main focus is meeting like minded people who are building fun things (with atoms!).

    This time we'll be meeting online! A 3H Discord has been setup and folks will be sharing their projects from home. Come share a gizmo, gadget, nest of wires, or napkin drawing!

  • Join us at C++ Edinburgh for some great talks and to hang out with local C++ developers over some pizza and drinks. More details coming soon.

  • Our regular meetings are on hiatus, but it's important to stay in contact!

    This is a wild time for all workers in tech: salaried, self-employed, or freelance.

    Let's have a casual meetup to share stories of home working setups, workplace treatment, and most importantly just to check in on everyone. Don't worry if you haven't been to a real meeting before - now is a perfect time to say hi for the first time.

    I can also give everyone a quick update on conversations I've been having with a couple of coding co-ops.

    The plan is to run something like this every month to get people up and running with basic web development and system admin.

    Whatever your level - you are very welcome to come along. We'll find some time to answer questions and if you are able to help newcomers with any issues they might have, all the better!
