Speaker 1: Ryan Yates (, Organiser or PowerShell User Group

Intro session to Teaching the IT Pro how to Dev with PowerShell ISE, Git, Pester & OneDrive.

With the amount of additional technologies needed to optimise the efficiency of writing PowerShell this can seem very overwhelming to someone new to PowerShell and could even put them completely off following an efficiency optimised script creation workflow. So in this session I will be Demoing a way of working that can help users progress into Test Driven Development with the Help of a module that adds additional functionality to PowerShell ISE to make this easier to work with.

Speaker 2: Ricard Clau (, DevOps Automation Lead at

Nobody likes patching servers. Specially not Windows servers. And the problem becomes even worse with hybrid infrastructures where you have servers running both in AWS and in a datacenter.

Packer is a tool for creating machine and container images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

In this session we will talk about how we are trying to sort this problem at Wonga, using Packer to create a bakery of Windows servers which allows us to build up-to-date AMIs and VMWare templates from the same set of provisioning scripts.

Pizza, beer and networking!

We will also be heading to The Lyttleton Arms ( afterwards for those who like a late beer for networking! :-)
