  • Software testing clinic is coming to Glasgow and we can't wait! Our first session will start with the question what is software testing? It may seem like a simple question, but it's an important one to answer as it determines how you fit within a team and how you carry out your work.

    In this sessions discussion we will cover the following:

    What is testing and what do testers do?
    The misconceptions of software testing and how to overcome them.

  • This is our monthly informal gathering - just turn up, grab a drink, sit down and start talking UX! If you haven't been before you'll find us on the right as you come in, opposite the bar.

  • After a tumultuous General Election, Theresa May looks likely to stay on as Prime Minister, albeit in drastically wounded form. In light of these changes, will the Conservatives still be able to deliver on their Manifesto promises to censor social media and weaken encryption? Will a revitalised Labour Party united around Jeremy Corbyn make a stronger case against giving up our liberties in order to combat terrorism? Join us on Monday 26 June to catch up on all the latest developments and discuss the actions the Open Rights Group should take to ensure digital rights are protected in the weeks and months ahead.

  • Join ThoughtWorks & James Lewis on Monday 26th June for his talk on what it means to be #neverdone.

    The software industry is changing faster than ever. Now, with microservices becoming more accepted - the rate of change and the growth of software we write is getting faster.

    James will explore what this means for developer writing code. Do we abandon our quest to build quality in? What does this mean for design? Is TDD dead? Sign up here: info.thoughtworks.com

  • Regular Open Night and Social, open to everyone, feel free to drop in, have a look around, and meet people.

  • Monthly meetup for the Edinburgh branch of Women Who Code

  • This month we are going to have a fairly informal talk by Gary Martin (@allegary) to have what he hopes to be a fun look at programming using messaging over sockets. We'll be given a look at using ZeroMQ to build projects out of a set of smaller programs with well defined parts. We'll do all this in the context of what might seem like a silly project of Gary's called Pixels as a Service which he has recently rewritten to use ZeroMQ.

    Expect raspberry pi's leds lighting up and hopefully a bit of light audience participation that

  • 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!

  • Monthly meetup of Edinburgh Java User Group.

    For details of talks etc see website.

  • 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.

    "How I ended up automating my curtains and shouting at my laptop" by Luke Bonaccorsi (@LukeB_UK)

    We encounter automation every day and may not realise. It could be a set of
    traffic lights, a thermostat or automated tests for our code. It all works
    to make our lives easier and more efficient.

    A couple of years ago I started working on a chat based automation system
    using JavaScript in my free time and in this talk I'll share my progress,
    my reasons for doing it and what I'd like to do with it in the future.
    Hopefully I'll inspire you to embrace automation in your daily life.

    "Proxy objects" by Caolan McMahon (@caolan)

    A short demo of the relatively new (ECMAScript 2015) JavaScript Proxy objects - how they work, and what they might be used for.

  • We had get great feedback from last months more interactive Agile Sheffield meetup, and the comments from the retro seemed to suggest we are all up for more of the same.

    So, this month we're going to use the first value from the agile manifesto to provide the theme for a set of group discussions and workshops.

    The goal is to come up with a clear and concise understanding of what valuing individuals and interactions over process and tools actually means, and hopefully some hints and tips about how we might ensure that we are really doing this.

    More details to follow, and keep an eye out on twitter for further info.

    The meet up will be a relaxed, informal affair. It’s a chance for people with an interest in digital rights to meet each other and figure out how we can work together to protect and promote digital rights in Cambridge and beyond. We have a table booked upstairs.

    We already have one fantastic local organiser for the group, however it is a lot of work for one person and so we need other supporters in Cambridge to help run the group and contribute ideas for events. Learn more about becoming a local organiser for ORG Cambridge here.

    Also check out ORG's local group resources and advice for more information.

    The meeting is free to attend and all are welcome. Coming along to the event will not sign you up to run the group, but you will have the opportunity to speak to others who want to organise something and sign up to an email thread about ORG Cambridge events.

  • Sharing what you make and do at Make/Share!
    Make/Share is a free monthly event on the second Wednesday of each month organised by Creative Dundee and hosted at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm.

    Four speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, changed and transformed, and how they experiment. They discuss their biggest challenges and how they overcame them and even present work in progress to get your constructive feedback.

    We think the processes behind turning a project or a product into a reality aren’t discussed enough, and that’s why Make/Share is so useful. After the talks there’s time for questions and the opportunity to share any news you want.

    If you’d like to talk about a project you’ve been working on, just get in touch with Creative Dundee.

  • The openstreetmap community in Edinburgh have a social meeting every month, usually on the third Tuesday of the month, from 7:00pm at the Guildford Arms. Everyone is welcome, including those from outside the Edinburgh area, to come and meet with us. We will try and have either a hi-vis vest and/or OSM related flyers/posters on the table. This is an opportunity to meet with others and hear about what's going on, learn new mapping techniques, and just generally discuss all things relating to maps, open data, GIS, etc.

  • Hi All,

    We are currently arranging the speaker, stay tuned...

    Meetup @ 6pm (speaker starts @ 6:30pm)

    As always everyone is welcome, we have beginners and we have developers in our group, so please do come along regardless or your WordPress knowledge!

    The social gathering we have after the talk has been very beneficial for people to meet others interested in WordPress and even get tips and recommendations not associated with the topic of the night.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Best,
    From all the organizers.

    So, come along and ...

    ****** SHARE YOUR WORDPRESS PROJECT WITH US ******

    It could be the blog or website you are currently working on, the project you are most proud of or even something you can't work out and have been scratching your head about (we've all been there!).

    Whatever it is, come along and share it with us. There’s an incredible buzz that comes from shared learning and collaboration. Let's make it happen!

  • Please note that this event is ticketed as previous similar events have proved to be reasonably popular. Tickets are free but donations to our hosts, Union St., will be welcome on the day. Tickets are available from here: www.eventbrite.com

    For this meetup, we are encouraging attendees to bring any projects they want to show off, combining this with a micro:bit hacking evening. There will be some micro:bits available to play with over the evening though you can bring your own. Alternatively you might choose to bring a Raspberry Pi or anything else you want.

    The evening is going to be split into two parts.

    In the first part, anyone who wants to show off things that they have already made, from lighting leds to small robots can, well.. show off!

    Please remember to be sensible about the dimensions of projects that you bring along, those that draw a significant amount of power and, obviously, n...

If you'd like to be introduced to some people, ask for me - Mark Smith - and I'll be happy to introduce you to some people with similar interests.

  • One of our regular drop in open nights, no need to call ahead, just turn up! We'll be tinkering with hardware, hacking some code and probably eating. Feel free to come along with a project or idea for some help, use some tools, or just hang out.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • .NET Blub: Frameworks beyond Microsoft

    The majority of web projects in .NET are written with ASP.NET MVC/Core and EntityFramework with SQL Server. This seems odd to me, there are some fantastic alternatives that seem to be scarcely used.Everyone knows there is no such thing as a silver bullet, so let’s check out some alternatives. Exploring some common problems, we’ll take a look at NancyFX, Dapper, and Postgres, to help us solve them.

    We’ll be looking at these frameworks with a slightly twisted take on “The Blub Paradox”. How did I realise I was essentially a "blub programmer"? Why did I decide to look into Postgres and how I can use JavaScript effectively with it? What use is currying in F# and what difference does it makes to me?

    Let's step out of our comfort zones, and let's start looking up.

  • This month we're meeting up to grab a drink and a chat about all things technology, hacking and infosec. All welcome!

  • Every month, apart from December and January we have talks about technical subjects. They are not necessarily Linux related, but can be about databases, security, config management etc.

    We meet in Sportsters Bar, 8 - 12 Princes Street Falkirk FK1 1LU from 6:30 pm and the evening is about chatting. All are welcome, it doesn't matter if it is your first time there, and it doesn't matter if you turn up with a notepad full of questions, there should be someone who can answer them.

    Look for a double table on the raised bit on the left with a fluffy Linux penguin on it.
