SGV Linux Users Group - GitHub Webhooks

This month, we are hosted by Everbridge at their training center.  Everbridge is also sponsoring food and drink. 

NOTE:  The GitHub WebHooks talk with Christian Weber originally scheduled for tonight is postponed to Dec. 8th (next LUG meeting) due to speaker illness.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Mike Weilgart graciously agreed to be our last-minute substitute with his well-received "Git Foundations: Basic Concepts and Definitions," which was presented at UUASC and LOPSA-LA.  He is doing a half-day training session at SoCal Code Camp on Sunday:


Dozens of commands! Hundreds of options! Git has dumbfounded sysadmins and developers alike since its appearance in 2005. And yet, this ingenious software is among the most fantastically useful ever developed. Learn Git from the ground up and the inside out with Git Foundations Training! This talk explores Git’s internals in depth.


Mike Weilgart has loved maths and computers all his life. Graduating high school at the age of 13, he thereafter worked in a variety of positions including software QA, calculus teacher, and graphic design, before resolving to put his love of computers to professional use as a Linux sysadmin and trainer. Mike currently consults at a Fortune 50 company as an automation specialist, and enjoys nothing more than training people to full mastery of their tools.



The building is on Hudson Ave, between Colorado and Green St. The meeting room is off Hudson, next to the first floor gym with the classic glass walls and gym equipment.  You are responsible for your own parking.   The onsite parking is very expensive.   Please check the Parkopedia link for your options or take public transit.


7:00pm - People start to arrive and socialize

7:30pm - SGVLUG meeting begins with announcements, Linux in the News, and then the presentation

9:00pm - End meeting, clean up, and then head over to Du-Par's (214 S Lake Ave, Pasadena) to socialize further.


SGVLUG is one of the oldest and most active Linux User Groups in the Greater Los Angeles area. In addition to Linux, the group also shares interests in other free and open source software, all forms of technology, and the discussion of issues that arise with the these new tools, such as privacy rights. SGVLUG attracts members from throughout LA County including Pasadena, Glendale, Burbank, and eastward throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Our members include software developers, system administrators, hardware engineers, and software users of all levels of experience. Many work in the technology field as employees, contractors or consultants, and enjoy the learning and networking opportunities available from the group. We also have many members that serve as volunteers of their time and skills at various local events, including the annual Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE).

    Great Meetup. Thanks to Everbridge for hosting and providing the food and drink. It was a fantastic class on Git internals. Mike obviously worked really hard to structure the material in a logical progression of definitions and concepts and how really engaged the audience. I now understand DAGs, trees, blobs, objects and commits more thoroughly than I have before.

    We videoed the talk. We'll post here when it is available.

    If you missed out, Mike is giving this talk again at SoCal Code Camp ( on Sunday morning at USC.

    Thank you, group leaders, for hosting. Thank you, Everbridge, for supplying the venue, food, and drinks.

    Mike, thank you so much for giving an excellent presentation! You clearly know Git from top to bottom. Even better, you did a great job of presenting information, explaining concepts, and answering questions -- all in a very interesting way.
