CoderDojo Glasgow Science Centre

Jun 23 2018 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
External Events

This dojo is a great way to get coding whether you are brand new or a digital wizard. Before you come along have a think about the type of project you might want to work on.

Are you interested in building an app, or making a website, or designing a game, virtual reality, wearable technology, using code to make music or art? Having an initial idea of what interests you about technology means our volunteers can give you tips and help you get started. No previous coding experience is necessary.

Digital Trustees Scotland

Jul 26 2018 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Charities across Scotland require digital specialists to join their board of trustees. Digital specialists across Scotland want to volunteer their time effectively in a strategic role but often don't know where to start. Digital Trustees Scotland is an attempt to bridge that gap.

This Glasgow event gives charities and those working in the technology sector the chance to connect via informal matchmaking - fueled by wine, beer, soft drinks and food. We aim to have a 50/50 charity/digital attendees split.

Digital professionals - this is your chance to meet a range of charities and consider joining one of their boards as a trustee.

Charity professionals & volunteers - this is your chance to find a tech professional who can help move forward your organisation in the right direction.

Data in Health and Social Care

Sep 05 2018
External Events

Health Care in the UK is facing many issues such as the lack of adoption of data gather for predictive analytics in health and social care. This is exacerbated by the increased demands of an ageing population. In the future, systems need to be created in a way that are more patient-centric, and which allow for citizens to be cared for in a holistic way.

This conference presents some of the research and best practice within next generation health care infrastructures for large-scale data integration across domains and stakeholders, and how they could bring benefits to all involved. A key focus is on the capture and analysis of data across health and social care.

CodeTheCity 14 - Archaeology Meets Data Science

Sep 15 2018
External Events

Join us as we dig deep into the history of Aberdeen!

In 2006-2007 an excavation took place of St Nicholas Kirk. It uncovered over a thousand sets of human remains, a rich collection of artefacts, and structural parts of the building going back over a thousand years.

Much of the post-excavation analysis and research is still ongoing.

Using photographs, paper records, some physical artefacts, and a 3D point-cloud data of a scan of the interior of the church, the aim of this weekend is to

  • create digital artefacts, and create prototypes to interact with, and visualise, the finds,
  • experiment with technologies such as 3D modelling and visualisation of remains, recovered articles and the building itself,
  • assist public understanding, deliver educational benefits and increase awareness of the archaeology and the Mither Kirk project.

Whatever your skills or background you can contribute to this exciting project.
