August 26th is confirmed as the next TechMeetup in Glasgow. Once again held at the excellent Saltire Centre on Calidonian Uni’s campus. The usual beer and pizza is complemented this month by three excellent speakers:

Topic: How to Optimise for Profit using Google Website Optimizer (Jim Williams) Why guess what web design would works best with your customers when you can ask them live on your site 24/7. Jim will show you how Google Website Optimizer can be used to quickly and cheaply optimise your web designs, increase your web site conversions and boost profitablity . Using case studies from his work at the social networking/gaming site weeworld.com Jim will share some of the many pitfalls and lessons learnt using Google Website Optimizer.

Topic: Programming Microsoft Surface (Kate Ho & Neelima Alluri) The presentation gives a brief introduction on Microsoft Architecture and Surface SDK, differences between Surface programming & traditional WPF programming, and using Surface simulator to create rich surface experiences. Towards the end we will have a demo of the surface applications developed by Kate and Neelima as part of the Touch Finance Competition.
