  • If you’re less than 19 years old and interested in learning to code, or already know how and want to go even further, you’re in the right place! Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.
    Prewired provides an unstructured but supportive environment for under 19s to explore and learn about computer programming and related topics. We have mentors from university and industry with a wide variety of skills who volunteer their time because they love to teach young people about computing.
    Prewired is also a place for young people to meet peers with shared interests which they can develop together. For some, it can be difficult to interest friends and family in computing, which may lead to a feeling of isolation. It can be hard to figure out where to go next when there’s no-one you can ask. We want to let young people know that there’s a huge community of like-minded people who are waiting to welcom...

  • CodeUp Sheffield is a mentoring program for adults who would like to learn how to code for free. Once a month we intend to provide a workspace for people with no programming skills to come and learn the basics, with mentors available to answer your questions and help you on your way. Our sessions will also be suitable for people with basic skills who need support to develop them, and even for people with intermediate or advanced skills who just want to come along to a space where everyone is immersed in code!

    Come along and talk to our mentors - they can help if you need some pointers to get started with programming, some advice on a project you're working on, or if you have any other questions about coding or getting your first job in the tech industry.

    Please ensure you bring along your own laptop.

    We now have a slack group to help organise what you're working on, and arrange mentoring and groups as needed ahead of the event! Please sign up on codeupshf-slack.herokuapp.com...

  • Sticking with our earlier start time of 6PM for pizza and drinks.

    Guest speakers followed by Lean Coffee:

    Valerie McLean - people are precious, time is a resource

    Chris Preece - team health

    Peter Aitken - how can our language and behaviour be more inclusive?

    Hosted by Gary Fleming.

    Content warning: Pete's talk has sections about harassment and suicide. If these subjects are a bit close to home, we will take a short break before Pete's talk to allow people to safely pass on his talk and opt for Lean Coffee in the other room. Or, if at any point during the talk you feel uncomfortable, please feel free to duck out. Self care is the most important thing.

  • Welcoming anyone involved or working in technology.

    TechMeetup is a monthly excuse for developers and the tech community around Scotland to meet up and learn new stuff from each other. No name badges, no sales pitches, just informative presentations from your peers and a chance to meet some of the tech community around you.

  • 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!

  • Come for a wee tipple or two, mingle with CodeBase team, tenants and the wider techie & digital community.
    The Social is our monthly get together: no pitches, no speeches, no sales, just an opportunity to meet up and have a drink with those of similar dispositions.

  • Homebrew is a package manager for macOS. It was born of the dream to easily manage the software that Apple didn’t provide in an extensible and maintainable way. Over the course of the life of the project it has be come the de facto way for software developers using MacOS to do this. It is also almost entirely written in Ruby.

    Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like writing command line applications in Ruby? Or what it’s like to work on a popular open source project? Or how to get involved in such an endeavour? Alyssa Ross is one of the core maintainers of Homebrew, and lives right here in Edinburgh. We’re lucky enough to have her come speak to us about Homebrew and I’m sure will be happy to take questions at the end.

  • An autobiographical talk by Brian Ward, Technical Team Lead at Inviqa.

In this presentation, we will go over what it’s like being an external contractor, what’s changed in the latest version of Drupal (Drupal 8) and my typical approach to building applications with this framework."

    It will last from 6 pm to 7 pm and afterwards, we will adjourn to a pub for further discussion and chat.

  • The next Docker Edinburgh Meetup will be the last one of the year, just before the holidays, in December. It takes place at Codebase in their Event Space, which is accessible from the entrance on 38 Castle Terrace. The Meetup will run from around 18h30 to 20h00, with further discussion afterwards in the pub! Cloudsoft will be sponsoring the Meetup, and pizza, beer and mince pies will be provided.

    Please let us know what sort of speakers or topics you would like to see at future Meetups, or if there are alternative formats like lightning talks that would prefer. During 2018 we would like to expand the scope of the Meetup to cover more Cloud Native technologies that work alongside Docker, and suggestions are welcome.

    We're always looking for new speakers, so please get in touch if you have something you'd like to present about Docker or the wider DevOps community!

  • 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.

  • Ever wondered how to write a tile-matching game (like Candy Crush and the earlier Bejeweled)? Traditionally game developers would write a game - the graphics, state, and user interaction - in an imperative style, but recently the functional approach is getting more popular.

    Hakim Cassimally (BBC, Manchester LambdaLounge) has been exploring the process of developing a tile-matching game in Clojure. He'll present present some of the basics of modelling the game grid, and playing a basic event loop, introducing some important concepts in functional programming and simple game development.

    This is a beginner-friendly talk.

    Where and When? Showroom Workstation in Sheffield City Centre, Jan 9th. Talk starts at 7pm.

    What do I need? You don't need anything. Bring a laptop if you want to try some of the ideas in the talk. Try the Clojure Getting Started page (clojure.org) if it's your first time with Clojure and come along at 6:30pm if you need any hel...

  • Get a flavour for our coding courses

    Learn the basics of how we teach programming at CodeClan and try your hand at writing some code of your own at our half-day taster session.

    If you're thinking about a career in tech but aren't convinced that you have the ability to code, this is the perfect taster session for you!

    We've designed this interactive taster session specifically for people thinking about learning to code through our 16-week intensive course.

  • Social Meetup to talk about Tech, agenda varies from month to month with guest speakers.

  • What do a overnight 40% drop in road accidents, a night in on the sofa watching TV and a good night's sleep have to do with digital product design?

    Humans only have limited mental capacity and no-one is ever operating at 100%.

    We are all influenced by the world around us and by how our minds work. As designers we need to be able to understand this and design for it.

    The power of 100 is a powerful way to understand the modern world we designing for. How your website or app will be used in real life and to design for how people live their lives today.

    Combining psychology theory, the latest in UX techniques the power of 100 is a modern design framework that matches the modern complex world we and our users live in.

    After all a designer who doesn’t understand psychology is going to be no more successful than an architect who doesn’t understand physics.

  • A bi-monthly event in Sheffield where we invite speakers from around the country to come and talk about their experiences in UX research and design projects.

  • Agenda - to be decided.

    If you want to present / talk at any of our group meetups then get in touch.

  • If you’re less than 19 years old and interested in learning to code, or already know how and want to go even further, you’re in the right place! Computers let you create anything you can think of. Prewired is here to help enthusiastic young coders of any ability to do just that.
    Prewired provides an unstructured but supportive environment for under 19s to explore and learn about computer programming and related topics. We have mentors from university and industry with a wide variety of skills who volunteer their time because they love to teach young people about computing.
    Prewired is also a place for young people to meet peers with shared interests which they can develop together. For some, it can be difficult to interest friends and family in computing, which may lead to a feeling of isolation. It can be hard to figure out where to go next when there’s no-one you can ask. We want to let young people know that there’s a huge community of like-minded people who are waiting to welcom...
