What we're about

We bring our members great talks from the best speakers in the UK and where possible from around the world. Predominately we look at the Microsoft development stack, but we do have platform neutral and methodology based talks too.

We guarantee one meeting a month, normally on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Everyone is welcome! Be you a student or grizzled professional, come along for a night of great content, people and pizza :)

We offer your first 2 events for free, then after that we'd like you to take out a membership to continue attending. Speak to either John or Rich to find out more about how the membership works :)

If you're wondering why you can't see the full 5 years of back sessions we've had, it's because we've recently migrated from our old home at NxtGenUG Southampton (http://www.nxtgenug.net/Southampton). By all means go and see what we've covered in the previous 5 years :D

Using Github actions to automate your CI/CD pipeline. Carl Sargunar

Everyone wants an easier life, and It's a commonly used phrase that If you do something more than once, automate it. Your future self will thank you! One way to do this is with Github Actions.

Github actions allow you to build, test, package and deploy your code easily and quickly - It's a straight forward process, there's a great community around it and it's free (within certain contstraints). In this talk I'm going to automate building a simple contact form package, publish it to nuget. Once it's on there, I'll use it in a sample website, and show how to deploy that website to Azure using Github Actions.

The code for all this will be made available open source after the meeting so you can go away and try this for yourself, and you can use the actions to build your own libraries, packages, and deploy your own sites. The only problem left will be choosing which awesome project you work on next with all the time you save :)
