* 6.00pm - Arrive, Pizza, Mingle

* 6.20pm - Introduction

* 6.30pm - PowerShell Core - The Present and Future of PowerShell by Rob Pleau:
Windows PowerShell has been around for over 10 years. In that time it has grown and gained significant adoption in the Windows world. In the past year PowerShell Core released, as an open source, cross platform, next generation version of PowerShell. There are some catches however as it's not quite the same as Windows PowerShell... Though the differences are shrinking more and more each release. We'll take a look at installing and using it on both Windows and Linux! We'll talk about what's new in PowerShell Core, and what makes it different from Windows PowerShell. See how you can use the two together for things like modules that aren't quite ready for PowerShell Core yet. Last we'll talk a bit about the future of both PowerShell Core and Windows PowerShell.

* 7.30pm - Break

* 7.45pm - Git Fundamentals - Opening up a world of community and collaboration by Paul Broadwith:
The days of point and click are going, going ... gone. We are moving to a world of Infrastructure as Code, DevOps, CI / CD and automation. The backbone for much of this shift is a simple version control system called Git. In this talk I'll take you through what Git is, how you use it and, most importantly, why you need understand Git to help further your career.

* 8.45pm - Thank You's
