You could cut the excitement with a knife here at Skills Matter HQ, as we get ready to host our first ever iOS Developer’s Conference – iOScon 2014!

Taking place this Thursday and Friday in the heart of London’s Tech City, we bring you some of the greatest minds in iOS for two days of talks, followed by the iOScon Hackathon weekend.

Speakers include Daniel Steinberg, Martin Pilkington, Daniel Thorpe and many more. View the full line-up here, and grab your ticket now!

Here’s what else is happening this week!


The fantastic Open Tech School return for their first of a two-part workshop on Python. This is the second time OTS have run this workshop, and after a fantastic response they return to continue their introduction to programming – with help from the London Python User Group!

The London Ruby User Group are also here to take a closer look into ActiveResource, and to show you how to understand the frustrations and triumphs to learning code in Ruby. They are joined by three experts – Angela Ebirim, Adam Rogers and Gabe Da Silveira – for three talks covering learning to code, how to win developers and influence designers and alternative approaches for internal rails services.


Join the London Selinium Meetup on Tuesday for two talks which may differ how you shape your testing. Iain McCowatt and Rashmi Ranjan P take you through Models of Automation and Automating Google Analytics tracking.

London Ajax join us for a discussion on Meteor: A modular platform. Join them as they meet to talk about the platform which develops client/server applications in pure JavaScript.


Our final User Group of the week ahead of iOScon, the London Scala User Group meet to talk on CQRS & Scala + Spoiwo. Jamie Pullar (senior developer in Concentra’s Product Development Team) leads on CQRS & Scala, followed by Norbert Radyk (enior developer, technical architect and development lead) who will take us through Spoiwo.
