What we're about

Umbraco Leeds is a monthly meetup group for anyone involved or interested in Umbraco. Whether you're a developer, content editor, project owner or just curious to hear about what it's all about - come along to one of our meetups and you'll be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.

Where is it?

We meet every month on the first Thursday and it's usually at either twentysix or Enjoy Digital (who both kindly let us use their office space and often buy us some food and drink too!) or at a local venue if we're not doing talks.

What do we do?

We aim to have talks related to Umbraco at 2 of every 3 sessions. Sometimes it'll be one longer talk and others it's two shorter ones. For the non-talk sessions it's a mix of social activities depending on the time of year. Check our events to see what's coming up.
The format for talk-based evenings is usually to arrive from 6.30 and mingle, introduce yourself if you're new and get to know some other folk who are sure to give you a warm welcome. We kick off the talks around 7 and they're generally done by 8. Afterwards there's usually a social at a local venue, open to all, but we don't schedule that as it's not compulsory (and we get that plenty of people have family commitments, etc).

Am I welcome?

Yes. Everyone is welcome. We're an open group and as such there's no discrimination based on developer status, age, gender, orientation, beliefs or anything else. We'll be adding our code of conduct soon but rest assured, we're a safe space.

Any Questions?

Feel free to contact any of the organisers directly, or tweet us if you have any questions about attending, the upcoming event or especially if you'd like to give a talk. We're always on the lookout for people to present and would love to have you attend or speak our group.

Umbraco Virtual Meetup - Yuzu In Action & Conference Round-Up

This month sees Phil Whittaker coming back to demonstrate how the Yuzu framework is maturing and being used in production scenarios. We will walk through a project that Andy Neil has recently implemented using Yuzu and talk about how that went. We'll then have a round up of the two big conferences that have been happening recently, MSBuild and CodePatch (the virtual replacement for CodeGarden) so if you've attended we'd love you to share your thoughts, or just come along to hear about the happenings and highlights that will be presented by one of the organising team. We will also have a break at 8pm for the #ClapForCarers. There will then be time for social chat or anything tech/Umbraco related you wish to discuss with the group. Please note the later start time of 7pm. We decided that this worked better for the current format.

Umbraco Virtual Meetup - Security Matters

Online event

Ali Graham will talk us through several aspects of Security. Being part of an ISO27001 accredited company means security isn't just about who's allowed a door-pass, it impacts on how you code, how you think about code and process and he's going to share the ups, downs and leanings from this.
