This Thursday, the ever-informative DevOps North East (D.O.N.E.) group has a meetup introducing Infrastructure as Code. This is the first in a new series of “back to school” beginner-level talks for people getting into DevOps, so even if you can’t make it this week, it’ll be worth checking out future months’ topics.
The event is being held in the city centre at Campus North, and it’s looking like it’s going to be popular, so I’d recommend registering ASAP at: http://www.meetup.com/DevOpsNorthEast/events/232890542/
TechUG Newcastle is two weeks today (Thurs 22nd Sept) at the Jurys Inn, Scottswood Road. Some of our team will be there, along with colleagues from the like of Aldi, Draeger, Sanderson Weatherall, Convergys, University of Northumbria, and Newcastle Royal Grammer School.
Speakers include Jason Meers from VMware, Marcus Robinson from Microsoft, Michael Stephenson from Northumbria University, Danny O’Callaghan from VCE, Paul Parkin from Veeam, and others, covering a range of topics including Azure, DevOps, Docker & Containers, Server 2016, HyperCoverged Infrastructure, a VMworld update, vSphere and much more.
You can register for free at http://tug.in/newcastlereg and the event also includes prize giveaways, complimentary teas, coffees and lunch provided, plus networking drinks at the end of the day.
There’s always a lot of good learning and networking to be done at these twice-yearly events, so hopefully we’ll see you there.
If Sean’s post about the WinOps conference was interesting to you, there are a couple of events coming up in Newcastle which may be up your street. Both of these are free to attend, include some free beverages, and pizza. They are also both being held at Campus North on Carliol Square, so just a short walk from the campus.
On the evening of Wednesday 15th June, NEBytes is hosting Microsoft MVPs Richard Fennell and Rik Hepworth from Black Marble, talking about DevOps with Azure and Visual Studio Team Services, with a focus on environment provisioning and testing, much of which is relevant to on-premises delpoyments too. Registration is at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/real-world-devops-with-azure-and-vsts-tickets-25901907302
The following Wednesday evening, the 22nd, DevOps North East has a session on Microsoft, Open Source and Azure, as well as an interesting sounding “Who Wants to be a (DevOps) Millionaire” game. Registration is open at http://www.meetup.com/DevOpsNorthEast/events/231268432/
