    Where do you start with a machine learning problem? What are good algorithms and what techniques can you use to get good performance? We'll take a look at a Kaggle competition to find out!

    We ran a similar session last month, but you didn't need to attend to come to this one. We're trying a different approach this time to help everyone get more out of the session.

    We'll be looking at the same data set as last month - a Kaggle competition to predict house prices. This time, we've created a "getting started" notebook in the form of a Kaggle kernel. You can find it and make your own copy at:

  • We are all Equifax - the data behind DevSecOps

    In March 2017, hackers took three days to identify and exploit a new vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. In the post-Equifax world, moving new business requirements (e.g., a non-vulnerable version of Struts2) into production in under three days might just be your new normal. Join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks within their software development lifecycle.

    About the speaker:

    Stefania Chaplin is a Solutions Engineer at Sonatype. She is responsible for helping customers understand and implement DevSecOps across the EMEA region. She has a history as a Python/Java developer and enjoys the challenge of improving the quality of software across different languages and ecosystems.

    This workshop goes ‘back to basics’ to give you skills to amend your webpages.

    WordPress has great ‘page builder’ tools like the new Gutenberg editor or plugins like Divi or Elementor. They help you put together blocks into a page layout. However, sometimes you may want to do something different that doesn’t have a setting in your page builder or editor. Then it can be handy to know what webpages are built on - HTML and CSS.

    After a brief introduction, we’ll use a basic text editor and a browser to write a wee bit of code and build a simple web page.

    Then we’ll write a stylesheet to change how it looks.

    We’ll finish by seeing how you can use the WordPress code editor and developer tools to make edits to the code of your pages.

  • 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.

    We're not centred around specific languages, technologies or disciplines; we believe there's stuff to learn from mixing everyone together. There's no cost to attend, and food and drink are provided.

  • 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.

  • This next meetup we will have a workshop with Romans Malinovskis, he will present some alternative ways to build Admin systems for your website, application or back-office.

    Romans is the author of several open-source libraries ATK Data, ATK UI.

    ATK Data is similar to ORM, but is optimized for high-latency databases (Cloud SQL). It is database-agnostic but fully supports multi-record operations in SQL (aggregation, update etc)

    ATK UI is an object-oriented web user interface in PHP. With a similar architecture to Desktop/Mobile GUI it enables you to create complex and interactive web apps without direct use of HTML/JS/CSS.

    H2O.ai Talk Fintech in Edinburgh

    Presentation 1 - Dirty Money: Detecting Money Laundering with Machine Learning

    Ashrith Barthur - Security Scientist at H2O - www.linkedin.com

    In this talk, Ashrith will be introducing you to the idea of using machine learning for detecting money laundering. The idea behind using ML for detecting money laundering is that the current rules-based engine have limited visibility into money movement. And as models learn the nuances of money movement, especially illegal, much better money laundering detection is possible.

    Ashrith Barthur is a Security Scientist at H2O currently working on algorithms that detect anomalous behaviour in user activities, network traffic, attacks, financial fraud and global money movement. He has a PhD from Purdue University in the field...

  • • What we'll do

    Product Up is an informal pub meetup in Edinburgh dedicated to bringing together the product community in Edinburgh. Whether you are a Product Manager, UX designer, Engineer or work in Sales/BD and you are passionate about creating fantastic products - ProductUp is for you.

    We started the meetup whilst working as Product Managers when we realised that there is no informal place to share product war stories, discuss challenges and keep track of all the amazing developments happening in Edinburgh.

    We meet monthly and as outlined, it’s a completely informal meet up so the discussions are entirely open. We have no speakers as this is all about you and giving you a chance to meet and talk to everyone in the community.

    The meetup is free to attend, so invite your product friends. Come along for the beer, stay for the great product discussions!

    • Important to know

    We want to create a comfortable and relaxed environment for our attendees so we would appreciate it if you c...

    Everyone is welcome, we have members and regular attendees who are widely varied in their WordPress Skills, beginners through to experts. Combine this with a variety of skills and you have a recipe for a great meetup. So please do come along regardless or your WordPress knowledge!

    There is always a social side to the WP Edinburgh meetups, many attendees have found this to be of great benefit & an opportunity to meet others to share & learn on all things WordPress and beyond :)

    Best,
    From all the organizers.

  • We discuss, demonstrate and debate how to write well-structured, malleable software

    We meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month

    We are a nomadic meetup: the location (within Glasgow) changes every month. We try to run in office spaces around the city, but occasionally meet in a pub; there is no expectation or pressure to drink alcohol when we do soself. We’ll explain the format (Guided Conversations), and make sure everyone keeps up with the discussion.

  • We get that sometimes, working alone in coffee shops or off the kitchen table can be a drain on your productivity

    So, we thought we'd try to do something about it. We're inviting all Freelancers and Sheffield Digital members along to our #FreelancerFridays - the 3rd Friday of each month - so you can work amongst other freelancers and make some new contacts in our recently opened coworking space - the Cooper Lounge.

    There's a small fee to cover our costs for which you get All-You-Can-Stomach coffee, Yorkshire tea and fast wifi, and any surpluses we make from the day will go towards future Sheffield Digital/STP events.

    What's not to like?!

    Limited to 15 people, first come first served. Please note that you must be an Individual Sheffield Digital member to register for a discounted ticket.

The Festival will bring together traditional disciplines of maintenance, repair and stewardship, with new forms such as supporting digital products, sustaining open source software, and moderating online communities. The Festival aims to share learning around maintainer skills and tools and how maintenance is resourced and rewarded, and to boost the morale of maintainers across sectors with inspiring ideas and stories.

  • 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. If you have your own laptop feel free to bring it with you, if not we can provide one!

  • 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!
