• NE:Tech - September 2019

    Everyman Newcastle

    We're looking at serverless and how to start a tech meetup as part of our September NE:Tech, taking place at the brand new Everyman Cinema in the centre of Newcastle (https://www.everymancinema.com/newcastle). This month we're joined by 2 seasoned speakers talking about two wildly different subjects. Dan Pudwell on "How we built a production application with Serverless and AWS for under $100" will be covering the application architecture, some design decisions, how it all works together, and all the costs associated with building, testing, and running a serverless application. Stephen Mounsey "The fresh prince of the Leeds Test Atelier" will be talking about his experiences helping to create and run the awesome Leeds Test Atelier. We will be taking notes on this one. Arrive from 6pm, we'll aim to start at 6:30pm. If you're going to be a little late, let us know and we'll wait for you. Also, this event has limited space so if you're not going to make it, we'd really appreciate you updating your RSVP so we can give your seat to someone else.

    Everyman Newcastle

    We hope you're looking forward to our August NE:Tech, taking place at the brand new Everyman Cinema in the centre of Newcastle (https://www.everymancinema.com/newcastle). This month we have 2 speakers who are talking about communication. Something we all do daily, but do we really communicate that well? Arrive from 6pm, we'll aim to start at 6:30pm. If you're going to be a little late, let us know and we'll wait for you. Also, this event has limited space so if you're not going to make it, we'd really appreciate you updating your RSVP so we can give your seat to someone else. Please welcome your speakers: Will Mac, Product Manager @ Safecall - 20 minutes-ish Estimates are estimates - Absolute Beginner : Delivery & Process Exploring the difficulties of predicting the future and how to best handle giving and receiving news that plans must change. Emma Clennett, Developer @ Scott Logic - 20 minutes Using Visual Aids - Absolute Beginner : Communication This talk is focused on what draws human attention and how we can use that in presentations and in daily life. There is a balance to be drawn with a visual aid dominating and distracting from the talk and being obsolete.

  • NE:Tech - Launch - July 2019

    Everyman Newcastle

    On the 11th of July, we'll launch NE:Tech with our first meetup taking place at the brand new Everyman Cinema in the centre of Newcastle (https://www.everymancinema.com/newcastle) Please welcome your speakers: Full details are available here https://ne.technology Graham Odds, Innovation Director @ Scott Logic - 20 minutes Beyond a more capable web - Basic : UX & Design Our vision of how we interact with most productivity, line-of-business and data systems has remained largely the same for the last two decades while we have been busy moving them from the desktop to the web. Throughout, we have needed to compromise the idealised experience to accommodate the constraints of the web's capability. However, browsers increasingly are no longer the constraint they once were. Maybe now is the time we need to stop hiding behind the excuse of technology, and start truly exploring how we might interact with complex systems? Rosie Hamilton, Developer @ ThingCo - 10 minutes Adabox - An Awesome Adventure - Basic : Development / IoT Sam Hogarth, Lead Developer @ Scott Logic - 30 minutes In Retrospect - Basic : Delivery & Process Why we perform retrospectives, where we go wrong, how to make them right. I've seen a lot of projects where retrospectives have failed to deliver incremental change. In this talk I take a look back into history to understand the cross-disciplinary evidence for iterating on feedback, reflecting on how this is the "engine" of Agile development.
