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. NOTE: Google Maps is showing Incremental Group as near the Trongate which is incorrect. Search for the address and not Incremental Group.

Montrose street is just off of George Square and equi-distant of Queen Street and High Street train stations with a 5 minute walk. Glasgow Central and Argyle Street are around a 10 minute walk. When you get there press the buzzer on the small door to the left of the main doors.

Agenda

For the first meeting we have a special first presentation with two speakers:

  • 6.00pm - Arrive, Pizza, Mingle
  • 6.25pm - Introduction
  • 6.30pm - The PowerShell Standards Agency by Paul Broadwith [t|b] and Craig Porteous [t|b]
    There’s the quick way or there’s the right way. In this session we will look at good practices and standards to follow when writing PowerShell to make it easier for you and others to trust and reuse your code
    By the end of this session you’ll have a guide to being a better PowerShell citizen, following best practices and sharing your code with others.
    Become a member of the PowerShell Standards Agency* (Not a real thing) and write better code for Everybody.
  • 7.30pm - Break
  • 7.40pm - TBC
  • 8.40pm - Thank You’s

Once I have the 7.40pm slot confirmed I will update you all.

My goal is to have two full talks this month as the majority of people responding to the after-meetup surveys indicate that is what they would like even though we will be meeting in person.

Grab your tickets now from Meetup. And bring a friend!

Meetup and Eventbrite For Organising Meetings

In previous months I indicated I would be switching to Eventbrite for hosting meetings but there has not been as wide a response as i had hoped. Therefore I will be sticking with Meetup.

Conference Call & YouTube Channel

As we are meeting in person we will not be participating on a conference call and this will be the case going forward for all face to face meetups. We will however continue to (try) and broadcast the meetups on our YouTube channel. As I’ve said, this will be the first face to face meetup so I am anticipating some teething problems, primarily with getting a good stream to YouTube.

… 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.

See you on Wednesday!

P.S. The presentations, slides, code and resources for last months meetup are now available
