  • The Digital Showcases are for industry pros and the general public alike – the format is similar to a talk show, with guests invited on stage to explain their projects by showing the work and process with images or short videos. The host is Chris Dymond, who will ask questions to delve into the details of how the project came about, how it was made and by whom, and what its impact has been, while also summarising and explaining in simple language to make the tech understandable to everyone attending.

  • Sheffield StartUp is a lively evening get-together that pulls in the region's top talents from the startup scene. Set in Showroom Café Bar in Sheffield city centre, this event is all about sparking real connections, having insightful chats, and opening doors for teamwork among cool entrepreneurs, potential investors, and folks from different industry corners. With a fun and diverse crowd, the buzz here fuels fresh ideas and sets the stage for future collaborations that could kick off the next big wave of innovation.

  • Informal get-together upstairs or outside at HowSt on Howard Street next to Sheffield Hallam’s Owen Building, to chat over coffee and breakfast from 9am. Everyone is welcome. No registration is required.

  • A guided exploration of the Linux server command line.

    Aimed at absolute beginners. We'll show how to securely connect to a server then we'll work through Bandit, an adventure game set in the command line that progresses step-by-step from the basics to common programs and beyond.

    This will be an in-person event in the quiet lounge of the newly open The Gamer Club, on Bath Lane next door to The Buff Club.

    I'll work through the challenges on the big screen and explain what I'm doing as well all work together though the levels. Join in and play along or feel free to work on your own through the advanced war games and someone there should be able to assist you if needed.

  • We're planning to try some of the beginner/intermediate war games from OverTheWire.org

    Leviathan
    This wargame doesn't require any knowledge about programming - just a bit of common sense and some knowledge about basic *nix commands. We had no idea that it'd be this hard to make an interesting wargame that wouldn't require programming abilities from the players. Hopefully we made an interesting challenge for the new ones.

    Natas
    Natas teaches the basics of serverside web-security.

    Krypton
    The Krypton wargame features encryption and ciphers.

    The games start easily, but get complex quickly - so those that already know their way around will get a challenge too.

    This is a great event to get to know everyone, you can work through the levels at your own pace, or just help out others that are stuck. We'll also talk you through the solutions to help beginners learn.

    We're being hosted in The Gamer Club, so there is free tea and coffee, or you are welcome to bring in your own...

    This event will show you how to get started creating basic 3D VR scenes/games.

    Key Topics covered:

    1. Introduction to Requirement Capture

    2. Stakeholder Identification and Analysis

    3. Requirement Elicitation Techniques (Interviews, Surveys, Workshops, etc.)

    4. Use Case and User Story Development

    5. Requirements Documentation and Specification

    6. Requirement Validation and Verification

    7. Tools for Requirement Management (e.g., JIRA, Confluence, etc.)

  • With a new state-of-the-art venue and our biggest ever speaker line-up, we're taking this summer's event to the next level.

    We went big for our August 2023 event, expanding to two stages for the first time, hosting more than 22 speakers and panelists across the day and welcoming over 230 marketers from all over the UK.

    This will be another brilliant day of insights across all digital marketing disciplines: SEO, Digital PR, Content, Social, PPC, marketing strategy and more.

  • Come join us to discuss all things Accessibility. Harriet Holman and Melissa Rocks will host a talk about the topic in general and how and why we should test for it. We'd love to see some of you there!
