April 2021 Meeting

The April 2021 meeting of LRUG will be on Monday the 12th of April, from 6:20pm to 8:00pm (meeting starts at 6:30pm). It's our first meeting of the 2nd year of remote-only LRUG.

Full registration details are given below, note that the zoom meeting url is only sent to registered attendees, so please do make sure you do it.

Agenda

We've got one talk lined up for you this month so far. We've always space for more though. Email talks@lrug.org, if you've got something you'd like to share with your fellow LRUG attendees.

Git Rebase

Brooke Kuhlmann says:

Git is the dominant tool for version management. Misunderstanding and misusing Git can cost development teams time, energy, and money. Few better examples exist than Git's default merge workflow which creates repositories that are hard to read, debug, and maintain. In this talk, I'll show how to use the Git Rebase Workflow instead, which puts Git to work for you to produce quality code that's easy to handle and kicks your team into high gear.

Your questions will be answered by Brooke Kuhlmann who is the founder of the Alchemists where the mission is to create an inclusive and thoughtful collective focused on the craft, quality, ethics, and security of software engineering.

Afterwards

Despite spending a year doing this, we've yet to work out a decent online version of the post-meeting pub. That said, we leave the zoom call running aftet the talks are over and the formal goodbyes have been said. You're more than welcome to hang out with the handful of folk who do stay on. If you've got any ideas for something better let us know at organisers@lrug.org.

Registration

Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees, even though we are all in our own little bubbles.

Even in a virtual world there are limited places for attending the meeting so you need to register via eventbrite. The link to the zoom meeting will only be sent to registered attendees on the day of the meeting, around about 6pm. Keep an eye out for the email and check your spam just in case.
