BIG Summer BBQ - FRIDAY 16th July

BIG Summer BBQ - FRIDAY 16th July


Where great conversation, inspiration and ideas come together!

CHASE has teamed up with other groups to organise a special summer event - a BBQ for everyone interested in technology, creative ideas, entrepreneurship and the life sciences. We're aiming to get cross pollination and to start interesting conversations.

CHASE: Talk - Next week - 12 April - An open-source based solar heating project

Wookey is a software engineer, working on Free Software. He's been deeply involved in the Balloon Project.

When he decided that a hot-water solar panel would make a good addition for his house, and that he wanted to build the system, naturally he used the Balloon as the controller.

The importance of getting the requirements right

Having undertaken and overseen a fair amount of systems implementation in my time. I saw this video over the holiday period and it served as a useful reminder as to how easy it is to get the requirements for a new system wrong through poor communication and assumptions both from the customer and the supplier. Which is made harder by the frustration that inevitably follows.
