Writing Cleaner Bash Scripts

Thursday, 5 April, 2018 - 19:30 to 21:30

[Moved from March to April due to weather conditions]

Tonight's talk will be given by Tai Kedzierski, covering bash scripting and how to write clean scripts.

Writing shell scripts is a common system administrator task, and whilst a programming practice, generally does not follow the same rigours of software development process - as a result, bash scripts are often regarded merely as ugly, unmaintainable shims.

Puppet for beginners

Thursday, 2 May, 2013 - 20:30

Robert McLay -  "Puppet for beginners"

The talk is slated to start for 19:30 in the Southsider pub.

The talk will cover setting up a puppet server, and some ways you can introduce Puppet to manage your systems.

As this is a beginners talk (mainly as I am still learning Puppet), things will be covered to give an introduction to the system, rather than any of the advanced stuff which can be seen elsewhere.

I'm hoping to include a live demo.
