    to their platinum sponsors Northern Film and Media and Sunderland Software City You can read some excellent blog posts about this event here The Pickards Blog SuperMondays Databases Daniel Swan SuperMondays the oxymoron of face to face geek social networking Stephen Woods First time at SuperMondays Posted September 29th 2009 in Uncategorized Comments are disabled SuperMondays on the Side Last night we had a sell out event at the Side Theatre This is an excellent venue and judging my the feedback we will be back there soon David Coxon started off proceedings and gave an excellent presentation of how he setup the online store for The Baltic Rather than choosing an off the shelf ecommerce application David and his team decided to develop the shop from scratch This was a risky decision but one that paid off in the end because after many long nights work the site was released on time and significantly under budget You can download Davids presentation here and watch the video here Paul Callaghan then gave a detailed introduction to version control and why saving your data in bomb proof bunker is rather useless if your disk fails Paul went on to introuduce us to Git a free and open source version control system Traditional revision control systems use a centralized model where all the revision control functions are performed on a shared server where every Git clone is a full fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities not dependent on network access or a central server Through a practical demonstration Paul showed us that branching and merging tasks are fast and easy to do You can download his presentation here Finally we heard from Alex Kavanagh Alex gave us an introduction to Subversion SVN another open source version control system Subversion

    collect data to be relayed to a collection of computers which analyse the data and provide feedback on a collection of displays around the room The Ambient Kitchen is typical of several of the projects at the Culture Lab in that it captures the users motions and actions with a view to understanding what they are doing so that helpful prompts can be given if necessary The work has many applications but it is most powerful when it s applied to provide ambient assisted living for older people or people with dementia The ultimate goal is to help people with everyday tasks such as making a cup of tea or preparing a meal Dr Jayne Wallace also introduced us to her work at the Culture Lab Jayne is a digital artist with a background in contemporary jewellery The core of her work considers how jewellery can act to play a role within what we each consider personally meaningful for us in our lives in an emotional context and how the expression of fragments of this can be enriched through the integration of digital technologies Developments already exist in wearable electronics and digital product design that have taken the body as a location but in many cases such digital objects miss many of the subtleties and inimitable qualities associated with jewellery You can find more information on the work that Jayne undertakes here http www digitaljewellery com Our final speaker of the evening was Andrew Waite who introduced us to the concept of honeypotting with Nepenthes Nepenthes is a low interaction honeypot which emulates several known vulnerabilities across multiple services and protocols It s ultimate goal is to capture live malware samples as the honeypot is being exploited A honeypot server should have no legitimate services installed upon it and as such it is assumed that all of the traffic that is targeted at it is considered malicious Running a honeypot gives you an insight into how systems are being probed and as part of a broad IT security policy they can help you to secure your network against attacks If the honeypot is placed externally it can provide an early warning system for attacks Placed internally they can help identify any internal infections Andrew has been running his honeypot for over a year and in that time it has had over 2000 recorded attacks with over 900 unique malware specimens the first of which was recorded within 30 minutes of gaining a live network connection Andrew uses this data in combination with server logs and intrusion detection software to help predict prevent and secure his IT network Doing so gives him a fully rounded understanding of his IT security needs You can read more here http infosanity blogspot com 2009 05 may supermondays presentation aftermath html If you know your enemy and know yourself you need not fear the result of a hundred battles Sun Tzu We are very grateful to Atau Paul and Jane and all the staff at

    fail to reach their true potential because of a lack of direction towards the end often due to the boredom of working on the same project for such a long time To truly succeed you need to drive through this boredom and deliver the project with enthusiasm Quality Every aspect of the product development cycle must be developed with the highest levels of quality Everything from the product literature the installation process the user interface and the reliability of the product must be perfect Customer support this is often overlooked but at your peril Fanatical customer support is an extension of product quality control If performed properly it will make your customers feel warm and fuzzy and this will lead to more business through referral Rob Mathieson from Tipstar then brought us through the steps he followed to raise the 150 000 that he needed to get Tipstar off the ground The process started fifteen months ago when Rob came up with the idea After some market research he found that the project needed significant development work and had some particularly expensive licensing costs Raising cash was the only way to get his product to market If you need to raise money you MUST develop a business plan No investor will even look at your project if you don t have a very comprehensive and well researched plan Things to consider are Market research is of paramount importance You must understand your market and your competitors You must find out who your customers are how much they spend what services they currently use and who their suppliers are You must then use this information to locate your competitors real or preseved and find out everything about them Rob recommends that you get a copy of their accounts from Companies House to look at their finances All of this information is needed so that you can market your product and get your potential customers to move to your services Project Plan how are you going to deliver this What are your milestones These should be for development and finance Money how much and when Can you do this on a shoe string If not then you need to understand how much money you need and how you are going to raise it loan debt or bootstrap Staff who will you invite along your journey True success comes to people who build a team around them Rob recommends the Beermat Entrerpreneur by Mike Southon which suggests that a business needs four people and entrepreneur a techie a sales person and an accountant Choose these wisely as you will be spending quite a bit of time with these people over the next few years In order to get the best people it is often a good idea to give them shares in your business this will give them the enthusiasm to deliver beyond the call of duty Rob also recommends that you get a good accountant and pay them well for their services

    it seems that he can now be considered an expert in this area if you have a need to integrate an online shop to Amazon com then you should give him a call You can download the powerpoint presentation here You can fiew a video of Chris here Oli Wood told us about Arduino the open source micro processing board Oli learned to read on his first computer a Spectrum ZX The Spectrum XZ was remarkably easy to write functional software on Using the Spectrum and the later BBC Model B a whole generation of enthusiasts learnt how to change the background colour of their monitors Since then the scene has dried up Arduino was developed in 2005 by a team of Italian hardware developers Gianluca Martino Massimo Banzi and David Cuartielles They became frustrated at how hard it was to find an inexpensive powerful microcontroller to drive their arty robotic projects In the winter of 2005 the team produced their first prototype with an initial 200 boards after a personal investment of 3 000 Since then they have sold tens of thousands of the unit to buyers all around the world Arduino is intended for artists designers hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments There now seems to be a rather healthy community of people who are using Arduino in commercial artistic and hobbyist projects Arduino is a cheap and stable unit which is very well supported by excellent software and a vibrant enthusiast community These are the qualities that make Arduino an excellent tool for rapid prototyping Tinker it is the official UK distributor for Arduino The official boards sell for around 20 each but due to it s open source status there are hundreds of cloned boards that are available from a multitude if suppliers around the world Some of these clones are exact replicas of the original but there are a few boards with smaller form factors and some with additional components and features If you want to produce your own boards there are only two rules the first is that the team has reserved the name Arduino which it trademarked The second rule is that you can not distribute your board on a blue background If anyone wants to sell boards using the name or blue colour they must to pay a small fee to Arduino You can see a video of Oli here If you would like to find out more about Arduino then check out the official website here http www arduino cc Posted March 31st 2009 in Uncategorized 4 comments Powershell Offline Online and CloudComputing a review It is with thanks to Shuoling Liu that we can show you the following videos of the February event Jonathan Noble Microsoft Windows PowerShell an introduction http video google co uk videoplay docid 1948859522116926743 Microsoft released Windows PowerShell in 2006 to finally give Windows a decent shell and scripting language for automation and PowerShell V2 will come installed and on by default
