    We will be welcoming Oliver via video conference from his base in Caerleon, Wales.

    Great! You’ve built your website, and now you just need to deploy it. There are various ways that this could be done - from (S)FTP, to SCP and rsync, to running commands like git pull and composer install directly on the server which is not ideal.

    As well provisioning and maintaining your server configuration and running commands, you can also use Ansible to deploy your PHP application - leveraging relevant Ansible modules such as Git and Composer, custom Ansible roles, Ansible Vault for managing secrets, and features such as idempotency out of the box to build a simple deployment playbook.

    We can then extend that and make it more robust by adding Ansistrano - a port of Capistrano - which adds extra features such as storing multiple builds for each project and the ability to roll-back if needed, cust...

  • Let's have a social night! There will be no agenda or speakers for this December meeting.

    Space in the venue is limited, so if you sign up and are no longer able to make it then please update your RSVP to allow somebody else to take your place.

    Code of conduct: queer-code.org

    Light meals and snacks can be ordered at the bar but the venue have asked us to pass on the message that they don't have the facilities to provide a full dinner for 30 of us.

    What to expect:
    The Regent is a dog-friendly pub with a relaxed atmosphere and a stash of board games. In terms of accessibility, there is a slight edge on the way into the main door which we've been assured can be carefully navigated by a wheelchair user. The entire bar area is on a single flat floor with no steps. There is an accessible toilet available.

    The date coincides with the general election but this is not a meeting to discuss politics. Please be respectful of the fact that others may not hold the same political vie...

    First speaker 7.00pm

    The Social is our monthly get together: no pitches, no speeches, no sales, just an opportunity to meet up and have a drink with those of similar dispositions.

  • This is a very casual and welcoming meetup - come along to code in company, chat about learning to code or coding in general and learn from other people over a beverage of your choice.

    All languages and levels of experience welcome, you don't have to be a beginner and you also don't have to know anything yet to come along!

  • To kick off the new year Paul Broadwith will give us a talk on some technology you’d probably not expect to feature at a LUG…

    He’ll be talking about the open source edition of Chocolatey, a package manager for …. Windows !

    “Wait, EdLUG will talk about a Windows tool ??”

    It is, more generally, an Open Source tool (Apache 2.0 license), which also enables a new way of discovering and installing applications. Introducing CLI package management to Windows users can be a helpful way to ease them into the idea of using a terminal - and make the case for Linux that much easier to present.

    It runs on the command line, typically in PowerShell, and behaves pretty much like package managers you know like APT, dnf/yum or npm. In fact, it is more like ‘yaourt’ and the Arch User Repository in that the packages are community-curated. You can even install graphical apps like Firefox and Filezilla with it.

    So come along for a journey of discovery, Windows and Linux users alike!

    We’ll be meeting at...
