CodeHub Python Dojo

What is a Code Dojo?

People who train in martial arts attend dojos where they practice and try to expand their skills and achieve self-improvement. The idea is that in order to become an expert in anything you need to repeatedly perform *deliberate practice*. Dojos are also places where people of variable experience levels can engage with each other, share knowledge and give support.

A Code Dojo tries to take those ideas and apply them in the process of master programming languages. Our version of the Dojo was inspired by the London Python Dojo (http://ldnpydojo.org.uk/).

Lunch and Learn: Designing games to understand complex systems

You were once a child who liked playing games and making up your own rules. Then you grew up, got a job and accepted the ridiculous notion that games are a waste of #productivity.

Hold that thought, because Matteo Menapace (videogames designer in residence at the V&A) is here to show us how games can be used to facilitate structured playful conversations around difficult topics (such as “the economy”) and how games can make complex systems understandable.

Join us for a Designing games to understand complex systems lunch&learn with Matteo on Friday November 16th at Framework coworking in Bristol. Get your free tickets here.

idiscover360: How To Use Failure And Handle Fear?

We are told failure is our greatest teacher. We are told we should fail and learn from our failures, but it is often hard to embody this in our day-to-day life. More importantly, unexamined failures can often lead to fear of repetition of one's mistakes in the future, or fear of experiencing similar setbacks.

Dealing powerfully with failures and fears, these paper tigers that slow us down and, at times, paralyse us, is a crucial skill to have in the world of business and entrepreneurship. Together we will explore how to handle both past failures and future fears in a powerful and effective way.

Join us for short talk, discussion and networking.

The exercises can be done using a platform of your choice. However, Steve would like to focus on a language prevelant among attendees when talking about the examples, therefore we will ask you about your preferred language on sign-up.

Lunch and learn: Blockchain; an introduction

Blockchain is the technology behind Bitcoin. They are both in the news alot. What is going on? Is it just a passing fad or will they change things in the same way that the internet did at the turn of the millennium? This talk and hands-on session will look at how blockchains work and what we will be able to do with them.

Who’s it for? - Basically anybody technical or non-technial who wants to know more about bitcoin and blockchain and the implications that they may have on money, law and organisations for the future.

Will it be technical? - Not really. Just one or two simple concepts that can be explained without delving too deeply into the internal technicalities. The underlying ideas behind blockchain are quite simple and are very elegant.

Blockchain could impinges on many aspects of our society such as money, law, privacy etc., There will be plenty to talk about without looking too far under the hood technically. There will be poker chips, solid silver, vellum and there will be a hands on paper version of a blockchain which may sound scary but at its worst may involve you adding up a few small numbers.

Bring your lunch and learn about blockchain technologies

Open to: members and the public. Get your ticket

Being an entrepreneur today, whether true vocation or search for status, can be treacherous. Building your company, embarking on a self-employed journey or navigating your freelance portfolio bring some crucial challenges when it comes to finding fulfilment in work. The freedom of being one's own boss and creating one's own expression can often be replaced by the burden of responsibility and false promises. There is a roadmap to fulfilment for those who choose the journey of being an entrepreneur, a freelancer or any other type of self-employment.

Together we will explore the challenges of modern professional fulfilment for entrepreneurs, and how to overcome them.

SWMobile talk

This month's Meetup we're mixing things up a little.

First up we are delighted to be welcoming Doug Sillars, a Google Developer Expert (GDE) for Web, author of High Performance Android Apps http://bit.ly/HighPerfAndroidApps­ & former Principal Architect of Mobile App Performance at AT&T: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dougsillars/

“Performance of Mobile Apps” A talk that goes over best practices, and shows examples of how improvements made mobile apps run better.

Next up we'll have a quick fire round of Lightning Talks.

- Kotcha! (Mez Pahlan)
This talk is aimed at Kotlin newbies that have a good understanding of Java but haven't yet dipped their toes in. It might also be useful for people that have started Kotlin but have hit a road block and yearn for the old days where being verbose was a good thing. It collects my experience as I convert two apps into Kotlin as part of the Kotlin Knights study groups.

- Trunk Based Development (Matthew Robbins)
What are the advantages from moving from feature branching to committing to master?

- FloFrame: a 'No code' mobile app development platform (Raman Mistry)

- Are we ‘Agile’ yet? (Sam Allen)

Finally we are really excited to be trying out a new venue this month at Framework on Kings Street. This is a brand new co-working and events space right in the heart of Bristol. It's directly opposite the Royal Navy Volunteer pub. For further information, see https://www.frameworkbristol.co.uk

If you would like to submit a talk suggestion for a future Meetup, please fill out the form at http://cfp.swmobile.org

Hope to see you soon,
Dave & the swmobile organisers
