RTPSUG - Git 101: "Git" up to speed on Git and source control

February 28, 2019 0 Comments Community

GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, Visual Studio Team Svcs, Azure Devops... all these tools for saving code work via the same basic backend language: git!

Git is the defacto standard for source control for many years now but it is still a mystery to many admins. I personally have invested alot of hours over the last year learning the nuances of Github and source control. It has been time well spent for me and I am now only starting to see the benefits.

For me, source control didn't come as easy as I would have expected. I know I am not alone in that feeling. This is the main driver behind the Raleigh-Triangle PowerShell usergroup offering this presentation. We hear all the time that many people struggle to really get a good grasp of source control. We would like to change that!

Thomas Rayner

I personally came to know Thomas Rayner online via his posts and participation in the community. Thomas wrote a chapter in the PowerShell Conference Book but I didn't get a chance to really interact with him until I started to participate more in the PowerShell slack channel. He is one of those guys that is willing to help when you have a problem, just like so many others on the slack channel. He is very knowledgable about all things PowerShell, Azure and DevOps but at the same time is so easily approachable. Thomas has written extensively online via his own blog and has produced some very popular training courses for Pluralsight. if you haven't been to his website yet, it's definitely worth a look because he has a lot of great articles on a range of topics.

Meeting Info

You are invited to join Thomas, myself and the rest of the group online March 6th at 8:30 pm EST for this discussion. This meeting as well as all of our meetings have a remote attendance option and the meetings are recorded and saved to YouTube and our Github page.

I have said many times prior: You do not need to be an expert to attend on our meetings. The goal of our group is to create a community to share ideas and help people get their feet wet with PowerShell. The group meets twice a month and we cover a range of topics related to PowerShell. Our group is about catering to people of all walks of life and all levels of experience. If you are total PowerShell beginner, you are welcome to join us!

The presenters that we ask to demonstrate ideas try to cover things for all skill levels. The hardest thing to do is to show up! Once you do that, you will soon realize, it's pretty easy going group of people to spend some time with. The one thing that I would like every person who attends to understand is that these meetings are supposed to be idea starters. Some topics may go super deep and some will be more surface level 101 introductory content. Overall though, the goal is to cover many interesting and thought provoking topics through the calendar year.

There is no cost to join and there is no obligation on your part, but you do need to RSVP to get the remote attendance link, which I usually send about 3 hrs prior to the meeting start to everyone who RSVP'ed YES.
