  • Diversity, Chocolate and Safe Cracking.
    A talk by John Le Drew, 45 mins.

    Summary:
    Diversity. It's the topic of the hour. Organisations are all putting 'diversity' and 'equal opportunities' on every job ad. But, for some organisations it still seems to be a struggle. What's the goal? Do we want diverse teams because it's the "right thing to do" or is it "good for our teams and organisations"? Are we hiring minorities to keep up with quotas or our competition?

    This talk will engage the audience in a frank discussion on what diversity is, why we need it and how we might achieve it.

    After John's talk, we will run a short Lean Coffee (leancoffee.org) discussion to cover topics surrounding John's talk. If you have some thoughts or questions you'd like to discuss, please bring them along with you.

    Speaker Profile:
    John has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies. After 10 years as a software engineer John moved into consu...

  • 57North is Aberdeen's Hackerspace and Tuesday is our open night.

    For those of you not in the know, Tuesday evenings are open to anyone
    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • Last month's k-nearest neighbour implementation workshop, but we'll recap how a k-NN classifier works so no previous knowledge required.

    This time, we'll look at how you'd use a kNN classifier to solve problems. We'll look at how we'd prepare data before we train and test the classifier. Then we'll use the results of our testing to try again, changing details to try and improve the performance. We'll focus on a tried-and-tested implementation like Python's scikit-learn kNN classifier (scikit-learn.org) but you're welcome to use any language and classifier you like, including one you've built yourself.

    We may also have a couple of short "lightning talks" from group members about how they're using or planning to use machine learning!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    From all the organizers.

  • A CodeUp & Sheffield Ruby Mashup

    On top of our usual proceedings, we will have an intro to the Ruby language this month and we’ll invite some Shruggers to be on hand on the day for our students. If you are a developer from another language, or a beginner who would want to learn (more) Ruby, this is the place for you. I’m reliably informed that our mentors also do other languages, so can help on the day with your work.

    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 yo...

  • Meet up and have a chat with like minded folk. Open to anyone and everyone in the tech industry.

  • The npm website has some catching up to do. It began as the
    homepage for a fledgling open source project and it has grown to
    become the foremost resource for over 600,000 packages in the npm
    registry. It now needs to keep up with the expectations of modern
    users and evolve into something better.

    This talk uncovers the process of architecting the new
    npmjs.com website, and examines how the changing landscape of
    development tooling has shaped it throughout its lifetime. It will
    also address the challenges tools must address in the near-future, and
    how we hope our experience building the new npmjs.com website can help
    the wider community.

  • Kaizen is a Japanese philosophy that focusses on Continual Improvement in workplace. For an organisation in their Agile Journey, they need to have a Kaizen focus and work on Kaizen Transformation

    Retrospectives, one of the key tools, helps in identifying areas of improvement and help in Kaizen transformation.

    Bigger challenge lies post retrospectives ,i.e, executing the improvement actions.

    Overcoming the challenge in implementing change is what makes Kaizen Transformation a success.

    As part of this talk, I will share my experiences with Implementing Change and going beyond Retrospectives to achieve Kaizen.

    * About the Talk:

    WordPress is known for pre-made themes that make it easy to get started. However, after a while you might wonder why certain design decisions have been made, how they affect your users, and what you can do to make the site better.

    This is where User Experience (UX) design techniques come in. UX is way of bringing together user needs and business goals through research, testing, and design.

    This talk will introduce the concept of UX and provide practical tips for improving your site.

    TALK DETAILS
    =============

    Great techniques I’m stealing from software engineers
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Presenter: Ewan Nicolson

    Ewan has been working professionally with numbers and computers for the past 12 years. During the past 5 years at Skyscanner he’s seen the data team grow from 2 analysts based in Edinburgh, to a global team of 25+ data scientists making global impact.

  • MOT Edinburgh Members we have a great opportunity for you here!

    The creator of TestSphere is passing though Edinburgh on his European cycling tour to Test Bash Brighton (I did tell him there are other modes of transport available).

    Beren has offered to run a free interactive workshop to demo the Risk Storming technique you can use with TestSphere during his short time in Edinburgh.

    Due to the interactive nature of the demo this is limited to 25 attendees.

    What is a Risk Storming?

    The RiskStorming game is a visual, collaborative method to map your Testing on threats to the quality aspects that matter.

    The game consists of three phases:

    1. Select a subset of important quality aspect.

    2. Come up with risks to the selected quality aspects.

    3. Use the rest of TestSphere to create a strategy in function of those risks.

    Linked is a blog that explains this in more depth from a workshop at the Agile & Automation days in Krakau.

    It is explained much more in depth...

  • What we'll do:

    - Opportunities to discuss current affairs and topics of interest

    - Generate new ideas for public events and presentations

    - Update on Open Rights Group campaigning activities and how you can get involved

  • Tonight's talk will be given by Tai Kedzierski, covering bash scripting and how to write clean scripts.

    Writing shell scripts is a common system administrator task, and whilst a programming practice, generally does not follow the same rigours of software development process - as a result, bash scripts are often regarded merely as ugly, unmaintainable shims.

    Tai will give some examples of some of his bash scripts from years ago, compared to their cleaner counterparts today, and how he has tried to treat bash as a "real" programming language using shellcheck, git version control, and bash-builder.

    git : git-scm.com

    Shellcheck: shellcheck.net

    bash-builder: github.com

  • A regular and very informal meet-up for Sheffield digital types, over breakfast on Friday mornings at the lovely Tamper Coffee Sellers Wheel on Arundel Street.

    The Asia Pacific region is home to the world’s fastest growing economies, with a wealth of opportunities for Scottish companies. In this two-day workshop we’ll explore why your company could consider Asia as a place for partnership, investment and sales and arm you with the knowledge and intelligence necessary to make your business’ ambitions in Asia a reality.

    # Paving The Way To Orchestration - Pete Wilcock

    With containers having firmly established themselves as the mode de jour for deploying microservices, the next step is the magical orchestration using Kubernetes/Mesos/Swarm et al. But let's back up a bit and discuss how you start to go from your traditional host-based configuration management deployment solution and package it up into containers to start with. Pete will talk about some of the things you need to consider as you move towards that ultimate goal - or do you even need to?

    Pete is the DevOps Lead at Sumdog, a game-based learning platform designed to motivate children to work on maths, reading and writing and help close the attainment gap in primary and secondary education worldwide.

  • If you would like to build a website using WordPress, or if you already have a WP site which is having issues, or if you are looking to share your WP knowledge, then this is the gathering to come along to. The idea is that people of all levels of ability can come along, collaborate, and discuss and/or show those aspects of WordPress that are of interest.

    This informal get-together is also ideal for anyone who is new to WordPress and looking to find out more. Hear other people share their knowledge and experience, such as:

    - how to know if my WP site is successful?
    - does security really affect my site?

    Boost your browsing (12:30-14:00)

    How your browser is configured can change your Internet experience and determine how much information others can see about your browsing habits.
    However, there are simple ways to make your browsing more private and more secure.
    In this session we will explore how tracking in the browser works and then what steps you can take to limit the information your browser gives away. By the end you will be able to make informed decisions about how you share your data, know how to change default settings and install add-ons and extensions.
    PS: Do bring your smartphone or laptop with you!

  • Are you ready for the new Europe-wide GDPR regulations? Join Sarah, Kirk and Veli-Matti from Ledingham Chalmers LLP who will be discussing how businesses can adopt best practice with data protection under the new regulations.

    They will be talking about what will change when the legislation comes into force on 25 May 2018, how data protection works in practice and the main business risks.

    The current duties to protect personal information about employees, clients, suppliers and contacts already place significant obligations on businesses. The new GDPR regime will add to the demands of handling data and increase the penalties in the event of breach.

    Event Format:

    12:30 - 13:30 Talks from Kirk Tudhope, Sarah Londragan & Veli-Matti Raikkonen

    Title: Lean meets Team

    Project Management and Leadership techniques talk

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

  • A monthly meet up for makers and hardware hackers in Glasgow. For anyone with an interest in making or hardware hacking regardless of level, beginner to expert. Meet ups will be a mix of demos, talks and teaching.

  • 57North is Aberdeen's Hackerspace and Tuesday is our open night.

    For those of you not in the know, Tuesday evenings are open to anyone
    who wishes to come to 57North!
    We get up to a range of activities on Tuesday nights, including but not limited to
    social contact, programming, manufacturing weird things and consuming sugary treats.

    We usually begin at about 7, but sometimes someone will be in earlier.

    If you're new, we'd suggest you bring a laptop, and perhaps a project you
    want to work on.

    If you want to come but are unsure about anything, ask in IRC - #57n on freenode. There will be a mailing list post at lists.57north.co detailing more information also.

  • 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.

  • Join us for CodeBase Unfiltered, our caffeine(or decaf) fuelled regular meeting of the minds, for techies & non-techies alike.
    It’s a great way to stay up-to-date about your local startup scene, bounce ideas with your peers........and we’re offering free hotdesking for attendees. Pop along anytime from 8.30-10.30am.

  • Join us for CodeBase Unfiltered, our caffeine(or decaf) fuelled regular meeting of the minds, for techies & non-techies alike.

  • 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...

  • 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. 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!

  • A monthly Software Crafters meet-up, switching between katas, exercise, lean coffee, and guided conversations.

  • The Docker Edinburgh meetup 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 and beer 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.
