After the success of last year's short talks and social night (https://www.meetup.com/BathCamp/events/232364777/) we thought we'd squeeze in another before the summer holidays.
The format is basically the same as last time. A bunch of short 5-10 minute talks with more time to chat in between with drinks and pizza (we're open to alternative suggestions) and then head to the pub.
If you'd like to do a talk please fill in the form (https://goo.gl/forms/blYEREvRjWVTRonv2) asap so I know numbers (even if you've not decided on a subject).
Talks can be about anything tech related. It could be about a project you are working on, an interesting technology, a way of working, a demo, a tutorial, pretty much anything tech or tech industry related, however tenuous the link.
If you've never given a talk before, short talks nights are a great opportunity to have a go in a friendly environment. For old hands it's a chance to try out a new talk you're working on.
Talks should be 5-10 minutes, although shorter tends to be better and leaves us with a bit of time for questions. I am not strict with timings unless you are rambling on and the pizza is getting cold ;)
Our current talks so far are...
Helen Gore - Data visualisation with PowerBI
Katja Durrani - Learning and teaching experiences with CodeHub, NodeSchool and CodeClub
Building Progressive Web Apps - Dave Taylor. PWAs are being talked about a lot at the moment. Dave will be giving us an overview of what they are and how to build them.
Florence, AI & Wealth Management - David Harvey of Seccl
Code and poetry, why your metaphors matter - Paul Leader
Cassandra Complex? - Andrew Page
We are currently arranging speakers for September and October BathCamps, which should be on fintec & the future of money, and health/medicine/assistive technology. More details soon.
Code of Conduct
BathCamp has a short Code of Conduct (https://www.meetup.com/BathCamp/pages/20642967/Code_of_Conduct/), the tl;dr is "Be nice or go home".
Our lovely sponsors for this month's BathCamp are the fine folks at BugSnag (http://www.bugsnag.com/). They have a team in Bath (just off the London Road) and are looking to recruit developers with a range of talents.
