Apparently our summer isn’t over yet, but looking out of the window it does look like it. But the Scots are a resilient bunch and, well, not getting sun for summer really is a tradition for us so the fantastic weather we did have was a bonus which most of us probably moaned about anyway.
But August isn’t only going to offer us better weather. It also offers us two PowerShell & DevOps talks at your local friendly PowerShell and DevOps User Group meetup.
As promised in July’s post, we have two speakers lined up to talk to us remotely:
6.00pm - Arrive, Pizza, Mingle
6.25pm - Introduction
6.30pm - The World of PowerShell and AWS by Bryce McDonald [t|w];
Bryce is an early adopter of the ‘Infrastructure as Code’ methodologies, and this has proven useful throughout his career as a system administrator. He likes to give back to the community through speaking at PowerShell User Groups, making videos on TechSnips, and authoring the AWS PowerShell book.
7.30pm - Break
7.45pm - Building Better Bricks: Module design and development best practice by Chris Gardner [t|w];
Chris Gardner is a DevOps and ALM consultant with over 4 years’ experience working with PowerShell. He has recently been focusing on using DSC to configure Windows for a variety of purposes, particularly when provisioning dev/test environments in Azure.
8.45pm - Thank You’s
