Co-working Wednesday, 28th Nov at DMU

photoDo you work from home or the coffee shop but wish there was an affordable, zero-commitment place to work alongside other similar people? – That’s what co-working Wednesdays are all about. Drop in from any time between 10-5 and stay for as long as you want. There’s a cafe where we can break out and get to know each other too, especially new members.

PHP EM: Are You a Good Code Scout? 4th Aug

Scouts are taught to be adventurous, considerate, thoughtful, effective, diligent, ingenious, thorough, earnest and effective! All of these qualities are ones that we should be striving for as a Developer.

I will prove that being a Good Scout and being a Great developer are are the same thing. I’ll take you through the actions and attitudes taught to millions of kids aged 7-18 and how you can apply those practices to what you do in your code.
