Blog Update 12/11/15

Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot lately. I’ve been moving house – well, moving two houses – and things have been rather hectic. Hopefully I’ll be properly set up soon and can get on to regular content creation, including some screencast material.

Upcoming talks from Me:

Sydney DevOps Meetup Nov 19th 2015What DevOps Means To Domain. Well, it’s what DevOps means at Domain as well as what DevOps means to Domain. I’ll run through how we Define the DevOps Ethos and some of the results we’ve produced.

This is a short-form talk and will be kind-of ad-hoc, with an Ask-Me-Anything at the end

PowerShell Australia Meetup 26th Nov 2015Unit Testing PowerShell with Pester. A rapid introduction to using Pester to automagically test your PowerShell code, and why you should be doing this, NOW.

This one will be accompanied by Ben Hodge talking about DSC, Kirk Brady telling us why we should be using git and how to do that, and then me blathering about Pester for probably far too long once everyone is tired. Beer and Pizza are, I believe, sponsored.


Video interviews from #PSConfAsia have started appearing

PowerShell Magazine have started publishing interviews with speakers and experts from PowerShell.asia. For instance, here’s on with Jaap Brasser, and here’s another with Ben Hodge.

There should be one with your humble author that’ll drop at some point (update: here it is on YouTube and here it is on PowerShell magazine). I really do recommend checking out some of the content from the conference when you can.

While I’m on the subject, the Sydney PowerShell User Group now has a venue – here at Domain‘s workspace in Pyrmont – and will be having IRL meetups from November onwards. Ben will no doubt be calling for submissions shortly, and I’ll be working up some content on topics such as Pester, Octopus Deploy, WMF 5.0 and DevOps in general. If you’re in the area and you use PowerShell – or would like to start using PowerShell – I really recommend you come along.
