This month our meetup is a special one. We will be meeting in person for the first time! It’s been a while coming but we finally have a venue for our first ever face to face meetup. So if you fancy grabbing some pizza, mingling with your fellow techies and watching two fantastic talks then join us on 30 May at Incremental Group on the 5th floor of the Garment Factory, 10 Montrose Street, Glasgow, G1 1RE.
It’s April. And it’s snowing. So much for Global Warming. But we have something to warm your PowerShell hearts. We are gathering interest in a hands-on workshop by Jaap Brasser on ‘Automating Microsoft Flow with PowerShell’. This is the first of what I hope will be many future PowerShell and DevOps workshops so show your support and register your interest!
Here we are in March already! And a new month means a new meetup, albeit a little earlier this month. The meetups are organised for the last Wednesday of each month but I have had to schedule this months meeting a week early. But we have a fantastic speaker and one, as yet, to be confirmed.
Time is fast approaching for the February meetup. I asked you all to put the date of the 28th of February in your diaries (you did do that, didn’t you?). This month we have yet another month of fantastic speakers - Mathias Jessen will talk with us about the Common Type System and Simon Binder will talk with on automating WaaS using Intune and ConfigMgr. Grab your tickets from Eventbrite as this will be another good one!
What a great start we had to 2018 with a fantastic session of two top-class speakers! Rob Sewell talked to us about Green is Good Red is Bad - Turning Your Checklists into Pester Tests and Josh Duffney showed us Application Provisioning with DSC and Octopus Deploy!
The January meetup has been scheduled for 31 January at 7pm and we have two fantastic world renowned speakers: Rob Sewell and Josh Duffney!
The October meetup has just been announced on the Glasgow group page! So save 7pm on Tuesday 31 October in your diary and come along.
In a previous blog post I talked about working with enums in PowerShell and how useful they are. Would they not be even more useful if we could create and use our own enums? Yes, yes they would.
Enums are not the commonly used data type in PowerShell but I was recently reminded of how simple and useful they really are. And they got some love in PowerShell 5!
I came across an issue with Invoke-WebRequest trying to access a site using TLS 1.2 and discovered the problem was with PowerShell defaults.
