Details

Our main venue, Campus North, is closing at the end of September 2018, so we will say a fond farewell....and continue our "back to school" September tradition and have talks on PowerShell (and maybe Git).

Craig Porteous & Paul Broadwith will give a talk on "The PowerShell Standards Agency – Write better code for Everybody" and (hopefully) and will also cover "Git Fundamentals".

As usual there will be food, drink and great conversation!

On the "PowerShell Standards Agency" - 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 .
The additional talk on Git fundamentals is great for novices and experts alike.
