*There is a slight change in our program. Alongside the Startup Cafe, there will be a talk on Business automation by Paul Muston, starting at 19:00.
We all need to get stuff done. Unfortunately this often involves either providing or consuming data in a form for other people's convenience. It doesn't add value to the information I supply, or use my core skills, and it really ticks me off! We call this busy work. Paul Muston will cover a number of use cases where he uses automation to reduce the amount of work he and colleagues have to do. This includes using code to take data from a spreadsheet and putting a human interface on it to save many mouse and keyboard operations, analysing the text of a large document to highlight key phases to make it far easier to read, and some automation of your inbox or inbound mail flow to your company.
He will show some scripts that he uses for these operations.
The talk is part of the GDG Leicester. All welcome!*
We are opening Chapel Cafe to startups and early stage businesses. You are free to come and join us for three hours of co-working, meetings, networking, cakes, tea and coffee. You may also want to take advantage of the mentors who will also be working there.
This is an informal event that allows startups to work in a friendly environment, meet with their peers, get advice and have fun. And who knows! Maybe you can strike new deals in the process!
