  • Our first UX Sheffield event 2020 features Iannish Posooa who is a Senior Product Designer at what3words. His talk will cover:

    What's a design system: We will cover a brief history and benefits of design systems. We will also frame it in today's context by linking design language and technical flexibility.

    Choose the right framework: This is actually 30% of the job as the users, workflow and tools you use will dramatically affect the end outcome.

    Building it: Most design systems are made from an atomic structure of Principles > Styles > Components > Patterns and here's why.

    Sharing your design system: How do you make what you have created as accessible as possible Internally and externally.

  • Wisdom and wealth, are bitcoin newcomers doomed? - Max Sherwood - www.linkedin.com After mining bitcoin in 2013 and witnessing the technology firsthand, Max began investing and proceeded to learn many lessons the hard way. Five years later, his failures led to eventual success, but he wondered what it would take for new crypto investors to avoid these painful experiences and make the right moves from Day 1. In 2019, Max launched an online course for beginner bitcoin investors, pointing to the lack of high-quality investment information as a major hurdle to bitcoin’s adoption. Full agenda and location will be confirmed ASAP - The event will be in Edinburgh.

  • I See What You Mean - two ways vision helps us understand speech

    Gordon McLeod & Ben Hopson of Cirrus Logic (www.cirrus.com)

    Speaker identification technology is increasingly common on mobile devices. The virtual assistant becomes more compelling when it knows who you are and, in some use cases, voice ID is a more convenient way of unlocking than by face or fingerprint.
    Incoming audio is first processed into features which are stable, distinctive and hard to imitate – ideally capturing unique aspects of the speaker's vocal tract. Several different visualisations are required to select features and confirm that feature extraction works consistently over a large number of speakers and environmental conditions.
    Features are then fed into a classifier which compares the extracted features to enrolled users to determine if the audio is recognised. Training, tuning testing and debugging this system brings with it many of the challenges of machine learning. There is a need to visualise data...

  • This event will be split into two parts, Andy Carter presenting The Dramatic History of the Web Browser and the second half will be David Bowen presenting Devs Just Wanna Have Fun.

    👉 The Dramatic History of the Web Browser with Andy Carter

    Microsoft announced at the end of 2018 that it was building a new browser-based on Chromium. It will join an ever-growing list of web browsers that are built on Google’s open-source Chromium project. With Google Chrome’s own share of the browser market continuing to grow does this mean Google has won the ‘browser wars’ and are comparisons with Microsoft’s once-dominant Internet Explorer fair? Now seems like a good time to re-examine the history of the web browser.

    Starting with its humble beginnings amongst the international physics community we'll trace the browser’s journey through three decades of progress up to the present day. It's a story rife with competing corporations, lawsuits and surprise plot twists. Does history repeat itself and what...

    Synopsis
    Recent innovations in tooling for operations has been driven by by the last ten years of growing DevOps adoption. DevOps speeds up feedback loops, delivers value faster, and shortens time to validate before release while simultaneously tricking us into thinking we still can test everything in a CD pipeline.

    Observability had emerged as a technique to handle the reality of real customer use cases like global traffic or malformed historical data that will always uncover new understanding about our systems in production. This talk is Abby's journey into experiencing the sometimes academic sounding definition of an observable system.

    Finally - we'll have a bit of time at the end for any Q&A and some further discussions / networking. (20:30-21:00).

  • Happy New Year! 🎉

    Is it too late to still be wishing people a happy new year? Maybe it is? Well at least I'm not kicking off with one of those terrible '20/20 vision' jokes!

    Anyway... Yes... You may have noticed that we took a little break over the festive period. Apologies if you were there banging on the door on New Years day. It's time to kick off ShefTest '20 with our standard Lean Coffee style event to find out what you want to talk about this year.

    If you don't know about Lean Coffee, all the info you need is here: leancoffee.org

    Ours comes with a twist. We know you all desperately want to know about Security, Performance and Automation. We'll certainly have some of that on the menu. We want to know what ELSE you want to talk about in 2020, so all of the popular subjects are banned!

    👉 **SQRL (Secure Quick Reliable Login) with Liam Raper**

    SQRL (pronounced “squirrel”) is an open, free, intellectual property unencumbered, complete and
    practical system to cryptographically authenticate the identity of individuals across a network. Though
    principally intended for website visitor identification and account sign-in, its concepts may be extended
    for related applications. SQRL may be used alongside other traditional website sign-in systems, and it
    can replace all other systems while offering dramatic improvements in usability and security.

    Liam talk will cover:
    ⭐ What SQRL is?
    ⭐ Why SQRL is important?
    ⭐ Demonstrate SQRL working in real life
    ⭐ SQRL in ASP.NET Core

    Presentation 1
    Where the Global meets the Local – Unpacking the Multiple Spaces of Innovation Hubs

    Seminar abstract
    This research studies innovation hubs as part of a wider phenomenon of innovation for development. Innovation hubs are collaborative spaces for entrepreneurs that include aspects of coworking, incubators, innovation centres and makerspaces. Despite the lack of clarity of what
    impact they have, hubs have been spreading in the Global North and Global South, funded and promoted by international agencies and local governments. Consequently, they are expected to create successful ventures, contribute to job creation and innovation development. My research critically evaluates the discourses of innovation for development and examines the implications of innovation hubs for beyond the mainstream development perspectives, drawing upon two case studies of innovation hubs in Zambia and the UK respectively. As such, I focus on how individuals participati...

  • From facial recognition to social media monitoring, from remote hacking to the use of mobile surveillance equipment called 'IMSI catchers', UK police forces are using an ever-expanding array of surveillance tools to spy on us as we go about our everyday lives. Too often, these new and intrusive spying technologies are rolled out without the say, or even the knowledge, of the public or their locally elected representatives.

    The use of police surveillance technologies can threaten our privacy and may cause us to change who we associate with and what we feel we can do and say. These technologies can also be used to target, profile and discriminate against certain communities - including minority, low-income and politically active communities.

    Join us in London to hear about Privacy International & Liberty's campaign for the public to have a greater say as to whether their local police force should be allowed to use such highly intrusive technologies.

  • In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed the scale of surveillance by corporate and government bodies on the data we generate online every time we simply browse, post on social media, buy things, talk to family and friends, publish and research. What that might say about our patterns of behaviour, personality, beliefs and ideas are of great interest to many who might seek to make predictions and influence. How does this level of actual or perceived digital surveillance affect behaviour? Have writers now become less willing to research and discuss certain topics?

    In 2018, Scottish PEN in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde, published a report, Scottish Chilling: Impact of Government and Corporate Surveillance on Writers, which sought to address this question. Based on a survey of 118 writers in Scotland, this ground-breaking study looked at the question of self-censorship among writers and what limitations that placed on their work. This not only affects their own freedom of enqui...

  • Is artificial intelligence the answer to everything or the downfall of man?

    However it is interpreted, the term artificial intelligence (AI) is banded around with little understanding to the types of AI and how they are positively applied.

    This informal event, part of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre’s (AMRC) Digital Meet Manufacturing (DMM) campaign, will be hosted by Technical Lead in AI and AR (augmented reality) at the AMRC, Sean Wilson.

    Sean will expose the truth behind AI and demonstrate where the AMRC is applying it to today’s industries to give businesses an insight into how they can be a part of the future of manufacturing.

    Sustainability is on everyone's mind with a growing number of companies treating sustainability as an important objective to increase growth and set them apart from the competition. The 'trend' has reached beyond niche companies who position themselves as 'green' into big business around the world, being sustainable not only has positive impacts on reputation but also on the opportunity to increase efficiency by reducing costs and waste.

  • CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we get together to learn from each other, sharpen our skills and enjoy being in a space where everyone is immersed in code!

    There are many resources out there that help you to teach yourself to code, but sometimes there is no substitute for the insight and guidance that another person can give. Our group consists of coders with a wide range of experience, and our aim is to facilitate mentoring between more experienced and less experienced coders.

    All you have to bring is a laptop and some coding to get on with, such as a project, a book, or some online tutorials. If you are starting completely from scratch, we will try to guide you towards some learning resources. Please try to install any relevant software in advance, but if you need assistance with this, we are happy to help.

    This month will have the standard format - just turn up and do whatever interests you most.
