  • The first meetup for Bitcoin Sheffield!

    What is this talk about?

    This talk will provide a very simple explanation of Bitcoin. It will begin with a quick discussion about why Bitcoin was created, followed by a step-by-step visualisation of how the blockchain is built, and finishing with a live demonstration of how Bitcoin mining works.

    Who am I?

    My name is Greg, and I've been working with Bitcoin since 2014. I'm currently working on a blockchain explorer and educational website for Bitcoin: learnmeabitcoin.com

    I moved to Sheffield last year. I thought it would be cool to create a group to meet other people in Sheffield who are interested in Bitcoin/blockchain/cryptocurrency too.

    Who is this meetup for?

    This is the first meetup for Bitcoin Sheffield, so it's open to anyone who's interested in Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general.

    The talk will cover the basics of how Bitcoin works, so it's suitable for anyone with little (or no) understanding of Bitcoin. However, even i...

    Acceptance Testing in Microservices - Dimos Raptis

    Microservices is being widely adopted as an architectural pattern during the last decade thanks to the business agility it enables. This pattern incentivises teams owning separate business domains to move as independently as possible. However, the need remains to test and verify that all these services will work as expected in cooperation. This can end up being harder at times given there are more moving parts that need to be setup appropriately in order to perform the necessary testing.

    This talk is essentially a story from the trenches, which goes through some of the challenges we faced with testing in a microservices environment and how we overcame some of them.

  • Swirrl and Scottish Government Talk DATA....

    The Scottish Government is making our rich public sector data open for social and economic good. In statistics.gov.scot, we have an open data portal that can be used for free, by anyone and without restriction. It contains a wealth of information that describes our country and how it is changing.

    For data experts, this includes API access as standard, to our 5* linked open data. This data infrastructure is used by Official Statistics producers from public bodies across Scotland to disseminate the information that they create. We have committed, in the Open Government Action Plan, to increase the amount of public sector data published as open data, and to make this information easier to find, understand and reuse.

    Outline for the talk:

    • What the site is
    • What's in there
    • What the opportunities are for analysts to use it
    • Example applications

    👉 MIX IT UP: An Introduction to Elixir.

    Mike Bowen is a software developer at ByBox. He likes esoteric programming languages, arcane text editors and the music of The Fiery Furnaces.

    👉 Solving microservices challenges on the Kubernetes platform **

    Developing microservices based applications is a hot trend in our industry.
    However the journey to microservices is fraught with problems, by trying to solve one problem we often introduce a set of new ones.

    This talk introduces a "journey" to microservices and highlights some new problems that are created by adopting such an architecture.

    We then step through how we can leverage cloud native technologies such as Kubernetes and service meshes such as Istio to try and address some of these new problems.

    This talk along with demos will cover many t...
