What a great start we had to 2018 with a fantastic session of two top-class speakers!

As usual Rob Sewell was great with his talk on Green is Good Red is Bad - Turning Your Checklists into Pester Tests - if you’ve never seen this talk and you have a morsel of interest in Pester, I’d suggest you check it out.

And then we had Josh Duffney with his great talk on Application Provisioning with DSC and Octopus Deploy. Octopus Deploy is a tool I’ve become really interested in since seeing the talk by Ebru Cucen in the October 2017 meeting so it was great to build on that knowledge and find out about Josh’s InvokeDSC module.

Switching to Eventbrite For Organising Meetings

As a reminder (and I will keep reminding you until April), starting with this month we are switching away from Meetup to Eventbrite for organising meetings. So I need you to subscribe to group update emails. This allows us to keep you up to date on news with the group including meetings. If you don’t do this we won’t be able to let you know when meetings are taking place.

Physical Meetups

We have a physical meetup arranged for 30th of May in Glasgow. I will provide you with the details of thise closer to the time, however I am still looking for a venue for February onwards. I have two leads now so will keep you posted.

Next Meetup

Out next meetup is scheduled for 28 February and I have another two fantastic speakers lined up. More on that soon but put it in your diary now.

Ways To Keep Up To Date

Here are all the group resources with ways to keep up to date:

… and finally …

The group is always in need of speakers so if you have a topic you’d like to talk about, whether that be a problem you have come across that you solved with PowerShell or a DevOps project you are working on that you’d like to share, please contact us.

Remember If you don’t subscribe to group update emails we won’t be able to let you know when meetings are taking place - so do it NOW!
