Tech Nottingham January 2019: Automation And A Retro
Full event details: ------------------------------------------- This month we have a fantastic talk from local community member Jamie Tanna ( from Capital One, and we’ll be doing our first retrospective of the year. Plus we've got free food and drinks provided at the event thanks to our sponsors Capital One, Cordius, Experian and MHR Everyone is welcome and there are no tickets required. Just turn up - it's free! ------------------------------------------- * Kickstarting Continuous Delivery With GitLab CI * by Jamie Tanna See how to deploy a simple static website using Jekyll and GitLab's Continuous Integration platform to GitLab pages. Then, learn how we can add some build steps into our pipeline, such as verifying that internal links resolve, and that we've added all the right properties to our posts, all within the same GitLab repo - with no managing of build agents, even on private repositories! * About Jamie * Jamie graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in Computer Science in August 2016. Jamie joined Capital One as a Graduate Software Engineer but is now a Software Quality Engineer, managing the quality behind Capital One's Customer Identity Solution, helping deliver Open Banking compliance using various tools including Chef and Amazon Web Services. Jamie regularly participate in hackathons, where he loves spending the weekend learning something new and building something awesome (or useless!). This drive to try out new tech brought him to using GitLab as a means to replicate some of the practices followed at work, such as automated build pipelines and looked to setting up continuous delivery functionality on his personal website. When he's not working, blogging, hacking, speaking at or attending events, he can be found playing a variety of games on Steam, thoroughly enjoying Total Mayhem in Overwatch, and playing a bit more stealthily on Ghost Recon: Wildlands. ------------------------------------------- * An Agile Retrospective * The retrospective is one of the most important elements of any Agile development process, it is a mechanism for celebrating successes, acknowledging failures and then improving and optimising. We will demonstrate the power of the retrospective by running a retro session on Tech Nottingham as an event. As an outcome we'll all get to experience and participate in the retrospective session and we'll all get to work together to make Tech Nottingham a better event. ------------------------------------------- Full event details:
