This month we have two exciting and intriguing talks. Leena Farhat will talk about "Agile methods in Westminster", and Steve Eynon will talk about "The future of sentient buildings with the Fantom programming language"

As always pizza and refreshments will be provided by our fantastic sponsors Notbinary.

Talk: Agile methods in Westminster

Agile methodologies are not only used in the field of computing. So what happens when some Westminster MPs catch on to how efficient some aspects are and how did they implement it? How does that affect their workflow?

Talk: The future of sentient buildings with the Fantom programming language

An insight into the growing building automation industry and the technologies employed to create smart controls and analytics. As more demand is placed on becoming more energy efficient and reducing carbon footprints, more emphasis is being placed on programming and new technology. The Fantom programming language was created to cater for handling small packets of data (for the Internet of Things)and to be interoperable with all types of networking protocols and Project Haystack methodologies. Steve is a champion of the Fantom programming language, which can actually be applied to any form of software development. For anyone interested in new opportunties and efficient programming tools, this talk is a must!
