BDF Town Hall Meeting

Preparation for the 2017 Brighton Digital Festival kicks off with a Town Hall Meeting at Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street, on Monday 3 April from 5.30pm, open to anyone wanting to get involved. 

 

Giving event organisers a chance to present their plans, whether the event is fully fledged or just the seed of an idea, the Town Hall Meeting is an opportunity to meet others, connect and collaborate. Anyone wanting to organise an event, volunteer or find out about sponsorship opportunities is encouraged to attend.

 

Additionally, the Festival team will talk about this year’s plans for the arts and education programme, what to expect in September, how to get involved and layout a timeline through to September.

 

Festival director – Laurence Hill said ‘I’m so happy that we’re able to kick off this year’s festival earlier than ever, it pleases me especially as we want the festival to have more of a year round presence. It’s always exciting to hear ideas people are already forming and to see connections made in the room – that to me is at the core of the festival.

 

As a team – we’ll share what we’re programming for this year, how we’re thinking about the festival and what opportunities are coming up. We welcome thoughts and ideas from the audience too and we’ll make sure there’s a forum for doing that.’

 

Attendance is free but signing up here in advance is recommended.

 

Brighton Digital Festival will be running from 14 September to 13 October 2017. We’d like to thank Arts Council England for their ongoing support and EDF our premiere sponsors.

Sensing Movement with Textiles

The Creative Technology research group is pleased to host a talk by Dr. Becky Stewart on e-textiles and movements. The event is free. Booking is requested so we can plan for attendees.
Dr. Becky Stewart: Sensing Movement with Textiles
Dr. Becky Stewart will be sharing some of her work in e-textiles that covers a range of applications and explorations. She works with e-textiles and signal processing to build interactive, body-centric wearable computing systems. These systems often incorporate performance, fashion, music and/or design.
Becky is a lecturer in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London. She was recently awarded the Daphne Oram Award Lecture for Digital Innovation. Becky was the co-founder of Codasign, a creative technology education company that ran workshops teaching kids and adults how to use technology to develop creative projects.
Dr. Gabriela Avram: Textiles and Digital Technologies from an Interaction Design Perspective
Becky's talk will be followed by a short presentation by visiting lecturer Dr. Gabriela Avram. Gabriela will be sharing snippets from her work with textiles and digital technologies.
Gabriela Avram is Lecturer in Digital Media and Interaction Design in the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, and a senior member of the Interaction Design Centre at the University of Limerick, Ireland. Her background is in Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Knowledge Management. Her current research focuses on the role of technology in supporting civic engagement of local communities. Her recent work on the meSch project (http://mesch-project.eu) on the design of interactive installations for cultural heritage settings has given her the chance to interweave her personal interest in textiles with her work in interaction design.

Async: "Writing Secure JavaScript"

Some of the very things that make JavaScript awesome can also expose it to security risks. This talk will go through some sample security flaws unique to Node’s async nature and surrounding ecosystem (or especially relevant to it) and will show how these could occur in your own code or in npm dependencies.

The talk will revolve around a sample vulnerable application, Goof, which I will exploit as an attacker would. For each issue, I’ll explain why it happened, show its impact, and – most importantly – see how to avoid or fix it

Rebel Makers Horsham - April 2017

** Our robot travelled up to Pi Wars in Cambridge this past weekend built by Cosma **

We are hoping Cosma will be bringing this work of art and beauty to this month's Rebel Makers. The dalek travelled up to Pi Wars and was quite the eye catcher.

Come along and be part of a community forming around playing, building and learning with technology. We'll be meeting monthly (Every 2nd Saturday) to exchange skills, learn new ones and work on personal and group projects. We are open to exploring anything tech, from electronics and programmable hardware, right through to writing code, developing working prototypes and the digital product lifecycle.
We'll propose project ideas from month to month; from building apps around opendata to mashing electronics for the internet of things. Keeping an ear to the ground, we'll also propose entering competitions.
We want this to be your club, a place for problem solving, teamwork and the confidence to voice an opinion.
Who is behind this?
Locally, HackHorsham and Red River Software. Nationally, the Rebel Makers based in Birmingham, a network of Rebel Maker Clubs across the country.
Please bring
Your own laptop and any gadgetry you see fit such as Arduinos, Raspberry Pis...
New to coding and electronics?
Then this is the perfect place to learn, come along and learn a new skill!

Location

Entry and exit from the building will be via the Conference Entrance at the left handside of the building if you are facing the front entrance of the buiding. This door will be locked so you will need to press the buzzer by the Conference entrance door to speak to security to let you in.

We will be in rooms: Boden/Hastings/Knepp. As you come in through the Conference door, you will see on the wall, a map of the rooms to direct you to them.

Spring School: Creative Cofounding

Kicking off a collection of workshops running in the woods this Spring, Creative Co-founding will be unpacking the bond between co-founders: how to maintain clarity, focus and, ultimately, your connection to each other and to your project during the most testing moments of your friendship. 

This is a workshop for pairs or trios of co-founders to come to together; it’s one day that will go a long way for the central relationship in your project, whether you’re just starting out or much further down the line.

What it’s gonna cover:

  • How to get clear on what the partnership is really about for you both
  • How to make sure everyone’s working on what they really want to be doing
  • How your stories about money will affect everything else that happens
  • How your cofounder’s quirky annoyances are actually a source of strength
  • How to map out who’s responsible for what without the need for boring job titles

The workshop will be facilitated by Tom Nixon, whose engaging and hands-on method puts 17 years of research into practice: drawing on the experiences of over 500 entrepreneurs alongside his own. Far from a theory-based lecture on friendship, in this workshop Tom seeks to actively disrupt your expectations of each other to deliver surprising, and often groundbreaking, results.

Bridging PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch

Elastic Search and Postgres: Different ways to search text 

Postgres provides two special index types for text. Searching for records that match a user provided phrase can be done easily and quickly. When the speed of these isn't enough then you can use elastic search. 

Elastic search is a very different kind of database that can provide faster and more complex text searches. By combining it with postgres you can get the best of both worlds. 

Find out how the different indexing approaches work and how you can get the best of both worlds!

HR Matters in Brighton

HR Matters is a bimonthly HR Forum for business owners, HR Managers, Directors and employees responsible for personnel issues, who work in any sector.

Fiona Martin, Director and Head of Employment Law coordinates HR Matters and promotes best practice.

This Session

Managing A Fair Grievance Process
Employers and managers need to handle employee complaints (grievances) consistently and this session will develop your knowledge and skills when managing or conducting a grievance hearing.

The law requires employers to act reasonably when dealing with grievances and failure to do so could lead to unnecessary and costly Employment Tribunals, particularly if grievances about discrimination are not dealt with properly. In addition, failing to reasonably support an employee could result in a Constructive Unfair Dismissal claim.

A fair process is important as Employment Tribunals can increase compensation penalties for employers who have not followed the Acas Code of Practice. If workplace problems are settled early they become less time-consuming, are less likely to damage working relationships, therefore improving staff motivation and productivity.

This session will include:
Resolving issues informally and when formal action is necessary
The importance of a thorough investigation and record keeping
Holding a grievance meeting – and how to conduct it
Deciding whether to uphold a grievance or not
Appropriate outcomes
Dealing with appeals

Booking

This event will be held at Martin Searle Solicitors office in Brighton from 9:15 to 11.15 am on Thursday 13 April 2017.
Events are free for members. Membership costs £25 per year to cover refreshments. Please pay on attendance.
If you have any queries please call Sophie Williams on 01273609911, or email sophie@ms-solicitors.co.uk. You can also join our HR Matters Group on LinkedIn here.

(Free!) Beers & Ideas

Come gather at the Clubhouse! We present a whole social calendar condensed into one evening, neatly packaged by The Happy Startup School and our good mates Crafted Crate! The founder of which, the illustrious Chris Drummond, will be there to share their story with us.

If you're familiar with our Lean Coffee format, it's gonna be a lot like that, but in the evening and with beer and pizza as our chosen rocket fuel. If you aren't familiar with it- here's a little low down:

It's a structured but agenda-less meeting. Participants each pose questions, then democratically choose the topic of discussion by vote, then get talking.

So easy right?

Then, at 7, we'll all be heading out to Bogan Bingo at Komedia, for all the bingo and comedy you can realistically handle on the Thursday evening before bank holiday weekend.

Stay classy!

We thought maybe you’d prefer to stay away from offices for the day, so rather than a normal line-up of speakers and pizzas, we thought we’d head to a local pub. Join us over a beer or two for a good chat about all things PHP and beyond.

Lean Coffee: How can I market my product for little or no cost?

April is Marketing month, here at Happy Startup, so we're posing the question: 
"How can I market my product for little or no cost?" 

So bring your questions, topics and passion for the magic of marketing(or anything else for that matter!) along to the Lean Coffee

April's Meetup will be on Friday 21st April kicking off at 9am. 

Who's it for?

Do you feel a compulsion to get a new project, product, app or service that you believe in, live and into the real world?

Are you a skilled tech, design or marketing professional attracted to the energy of the startup scene?

Or are you just super energised and excited to help someone bring their vision to the world?

If so, come and join us for a morning of structured but agenda-less small group conversation. Read on...

The Lean Coffee format

Lean coffee is a structured but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, democratically choose the topic of discussion by vote, then get talking. Simples.

There are dozens of Lean Coffee meetups happening across the world in places like Seattle, San Francisco, Toronto, Stockholm, Edinburgh and now we've put Brighton on the list.

Who usually comes along?

• budding startups 







• intrapreneurs 







• small business owners 







• one man bands 







• people with a passion for startups 







• ...and anyone who simply wants to learn, or create.

Topics regularly discussed within small groups are:

• productivity hacks

• how to test an idea without having customers

• building a 100% transparent company

• pricing your services effectively

• how to find designers/developers

• how to choose the right product features

• community building hacks

• growth & content marketing

...but we welcome all sorts of startup, business and happiness related topics you might need help with.

See you there :)

Haunted Random Forest Festival

You are invited to join us April 21-23 for the Haunted Random Forest <http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom>, a new festival at the University of Sussex Humanities Lab and Lighthouse Arts in Brighton, UK aimed at exploring the ways we understand and critique machine learning systems through interdisciplinary, hands-on, discussion-based and aesthetic approaches.
 
By critiquing these systems together as a community, the human elements at work in computational processes will be brought to light, illuminating the ways we understand the digital as a set of entities and processes that can be known, understood and built. A recurrent theme will be an interrogation of the role of language as a practice that can limit cultural understandings of digital systems, in alignment with the issue of corporate interests keeping technologies black-boxed and thereby ‘unknowable’.
 
The multi-day discussions, artworks and tours of this festival will explore alternative socio-technical literacies with publics, revealing the human species as a causal force with regards to our impact upon society, culture and technology. By hosting happenings across Brighton, we hope to transport the critical focus of the Sussex Humanities Lab outside of the campus and into the city, enabling interdisciplinary collaborations between digital, arts and academic communities.
 
We look forward to seeing you there! http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom | #HauntedRandom

The Programme: 

ARE YOU ACTIVE ON SOCIAL MEDIA?

WHAT WOULD YOU THINK IF YOUR ONLINE DATA WERE PHYSICAL TATTOOS?

WOULD YOU WISH FOR THE RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN?

Katie Dale-Everett Dance presents an exciting three part programme of cross disciplinary choreographic works exploring our increasingly digitalised society and the impact this has on our identity, perceptions, control and Right to be Forgotten.

Digital Tattoo:

WHAT IF OUR ONLINE INFORMATION WERE DIGITAL TATTOOS?

WHAT WOULD YOURS SAY ABOUT YOU?

WOULD YOU WISH FOR THE RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN?

Mixing dance and projection, Digital Tattoo considers the permanency of online data trails, inescapable in this increasingly digitalised world.  

Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1:

It has been proposed that our digital information will last longer than we will ourselves in the flesh unless we are granted the Right to be Forgotten. Digital Tattoo: Artefact 1 is a choreographic art film combining dance, animation and projections to explore the permanence of online data.

Finding Human Ghost in Algorithms

This free night of talks will explore the human ‘ghosts’ that are present in the mechanisms of artificial intelligence and machine learning that increasingly permeate everyday life. From Google’s ‘Deep Dream’ system, the complex analytics of the Amazon Echo, to the near-ubiquity of Cloud computing, we rely increasingly on systems which are hidden from us, both in their physical location and in how they function. Taking place amongst new installation artworks exploring this topic, and featuring speakers from the worlds of art and technology, this panel and public discussion will explore the ways we can understand the human components of such systems, building a deeper knowledge of our relationships in a networked society.
Speakers:
Ruth Catlow - An artist and curator working with emancipatory network cultures, practices and poetics, Ruth Catlow is co-founder/director, with Marc Garrett, of Furtherfield, an artist led organisation for labs, debates and exhibitions around critical questions in arts, technology and society.

Use That Camera - With Bee Holmes & Scott Ramsey

Join us at Colonnade House - Creative Hub for an evening around photography and getting the most out of your camera- whether that's the phone in your pocket or the DSLR you bought last year that's just gathering dust.

A well photographed product vs. a poorly lit snap can alter how people percieve your businness. Bee Holmes has worked as a photographer and photography lecturer since graduating from her degree over 10 years ago. Specialising mainly in environmental portraiture with the use of natural light, she is currently employed as a product photographer and graphic designer which has enabled her to develop a range of product photography skills.

Bee will be leading a talk about how to Maximise your photography to help promote your products. Covering a range of cameras Bee will look at basic (iPhone), intermediate and more advanced ways (using a pro') ways of using the camera to produce creative results. She will be talking about how to make the best use of lighting whether that’s using available light from a window to using a flash. This overview is perfect for those setting up or overhauling their Etsy, upping their game on Instagram or rethinking how they present themselves online. 

Bee will be followed by Scott Ramsey for a discussion entitled The Modern Day Storyteller - Using Coffee and Live Broadcasting To Share A Story. Better photography can help sell your products/ business but what about telling your story or the story of your business. Scott will begin by giving us a brief overview of his career to serve as an example of how rapidly technology has changed. From beginning as a photographer (pre internet) to the introduction of autofocus, digital cameras, the internet and smartphones and how this has changed his practice.

We will then discuss a little about the variety of ways people now receive ‘content’. The challenges business, media organisations and photographers now have in connecting with their audience or even finding an audience in the first place. And how this lead Scott to Periscope (the first live broadcasting platform) as the place he felt he could share his stories and build an audience that he could really connect with.

Scott Ramsey in his own words is a "bearded, moustache twirling, coffee drinking Visual Story Creator based in West Sussex". A second generation photographer, Scott started his career as an editorial photographer whilst still at school aged 12. Working as both a freelance and staff photographer Scott’s photographs have appeared in both local and national newspapers. As technology changed so did Scott and he now uses Social Media, Photography, Film, Audio and Live Broadcasting apps to tell his stories and connect with his audience.

“Whether I’m covering an assignment for a local business or an editorial client the story is the most important thing. I use my ability to see an image to help tell this story and technology to share it”.

So please joing us for this FREE event 5-7pm 24th April by reserving your ticket now.

Brighton Java: OO Programming, Who needs it?

This month we welcome back Danielle Ashley. She will talk about the debates around the future of Object-Orientated programming: 

Object-oriented programming should be able to claim that it has simplified the lives and work of millions. Instead, interest in new languages and models is on the rise, and writing maintainable systems seems as hard as ever. Danielle Ashley reviews various  arguments - some new, some old - about where OOP is going, whether it's still relevant or in decline, and why. On one side, some have decided that OOP is flawed at the core and must be ditched, in the middle we have 'apologists' of the status quo while on yet another front are a faction of OOP purists who claims that OOP is failing only because it's betrayed its original vision, and offer controversial remedies. Danielle will look at all sides of the debate and encourage the audience to take their own positions.

We will have beer, soft drinks and pizza supplied by our sponsors Brandwatch. Doors open at 7pm with a chance for developers to meet and talk. The presentation begins at 7:30pm. Developers of all levels are encouraged to join us. 

This evening will be live streamed with a recording to be posted on our YouTube channel shortly after. The stream starts at 7:30pm and is located at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubOxJyIKdZM

ARTIST STORY Helen Cammock

Helen Cammock works with moving image, photography, text, performance and installation. Within these various forms is her underlying interest and aim to consider how societal dissonance, that exists between the individual and collective experience embodies consequences of structural inequality.

Ideas around authorship and the appropriation, exchange, interruption and transference of ideas and thinking are used to explore the intersect between art, history, social change and politics. Her relationship between self-authored writing and found/archival material resurfaces again and again she is interested in this intersect and potential for new meaning and disjunct.

Helen has become increasingly interested in the idea of place – geography – and the journey that she has begun to make through different environments as an artist over the last year.

Helen Cammock studied BA Photography at The University of Brighton and graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2011. Her practice uses photography, video, poetry, writing, printmaking and installation. Her work has recently been screened and exhibited at venues including the Serpentine Cinema series; as part of Tate Artists Moving Image Screening Programme, Tate Britain, and at Hollybush Gardens gallery, London. She has written for Photoworks and Aperture magazines and was shortlisted for the Bridport poetry prize in 2015. Helen has had work published in The Photographers’ Gallery journal Loose Associations and will be publishing a new artist book and vinyl 12” with Bookworks, London in April 2017 and has a solo show at Cubitt, London later this year. Helen was co-director of Brighton Photo Fringe Festival for 4 years.
This event is FREE (donations welcome) but places are limited so we recommend that you reserve yours in advance.
You can also reserve a place by talking to a member of the gallery team during gallery opening hours or by calling the Fabrica office on 01273 778646.

THINK IT. MAKE IT. SELL IT.

Ali and Jam AKA hello DODO – the playful printmakers and designers – will be talking us through their process from coming up with that initial idea to producing a finished product and beyond. They’ll be discussing the idea process, the logistics of making something, how to successfully launch a product, what to do if it goes wrong and more!

Expect some helpful tips and lots of fun pictures to look at. Ali and Jam are in their sixth year of running hello DODO. They started out with screenprinted posters (after teaching themselves to print from home) and a small range of greetings cards. They now also design and make handprinted t-shirts, tote bags, baby clothes, badges, enamel pins and embroidered patches. Everything that hello DODO creates is designed to make people smile!

John Bond is an illustrator with a fast growing reputation for his deceptively simple, witty and irreverent drawings and doodles.

Fresh off the back of his successful 'Best in Show' exhibition, John will be taking us through his thought processes, experiments and day-to-day practice, that allow him to create a varied yet coherent body of work.

Whether it's an array of dog paintings for a show, a re-design of the classic Mr.Men characters, or a series of coffee-cup doodles. John highlights the importance of remaining spontaneous, playful and true to yourself.

Brighton Community Media Meetup


This is a repeat of the kick off from last week for those that couldn't make it, and the purpose will be for me to give you all a very brief introduction to the Bristol Cable to seed the discussion, and then for us to have a chat about what a community media project in Brighton might look like.

If you've got ideas to pitch in then great, but if you just want to listen to what others have to say that's fine too.  It's going to be very informal. Attendees from last week are welcome again off course.

Just note that this meetup group is only temporary to help kick things off and then it will move to a more suitable medium TBA.  I envisage one other kick off meeting in early May for those that aren't able to make this one.
