    Nigma Event: Starting a career in Technology – 6th December

    For their next event, Nigma has been invited to ShopKeep's Belfast offices for an exciting personal account on how to jump-start a career in technology; followed by a technical insight into API first design and how it can help you!

    This month's topics include:

    Art Knipe (@awflwafl) on Jumpstarting your tech career!

    Art is a software engineer who dedicates most of his time to the JavaScript domain. Art is involved in Code Co-Op which runs free-form socials and set coding challenges at Farset Labs. Code Co-Op is designed for people who prefer to learn outside of formal programmes and enables them to come together and help each other out. The group receives continuous support from Farset Labs and the wider Code Co-Op community.

    Annette McCullough (@annettemccull) on API first design

    Annette will be speaking on personal experience as a team lead and what exactly “API First” means; All too often, “API First” can come to mean “Yeah, APIs are important, but they’re not essential”. Just as you spend time to design your graphical user interface, invest time to design your API!

    #puppethack – 7th-8th December

    #puppethack is a collaborative, relaxed online Puppet community hack day. It's an opportunity for Puppet community members and Puppet employees to tackle interesting or fun Puppet projects, get to know each other, and collaborate on pull requests.

    Drop in at any point! The extended hours reflect the many time zones of Puppet Contributors.

    Who is #puppethack for?

    #puppethack is for beginners with some Puppet experience, intermediate, and advanced Puppet users, contributors, developers, module authors, docs writers, and anyone else contributing to the Puppet community.

    Puppet engineers will be available during Open Lab times should you need help on a project (times below).

    *NOTE: This is not a good event for folks who are new to Puppet entirely, as we won't be going over the basics of what Puppet is.

    We will be drawing random winners throughout the entire event. In order to be entered into the drawing, you must be registered for the event.
