    Pre-digital & large companies (very!) often misunderstand what agility is and achieve little more than the dreaded cargo-cult. I'll share a simple visual tool I use to influence leaders, charter teams,...

  • This month Gordon McLachlan will be joining us to talk to us about 'Why you need luck to run a successful digital agency!' – Life is not a meritocracy and running a successful digital agency is no exception. Find out how luck plays a role in both running a business and navigating our personal lives.

    Gordon is the Managing Director and co-founder of Primate. He has over 15 years experience. He's passionate about digital and business transformation. And, indifferent towards monkeys, apparently!

    To get more of a flavour of who he is you can check out his thoughts on: 'What Japan can teach us about business'; and whether 'To be or not to be honest' on Medium here: medium.com

    Gordon's agency is not a WordPress centric one, but his some of his experiences could apply to one. – Like all our talks there should be something useful for everyone, regardless of background or experience.

    Organisers and regular meet up attendee's will be on hand to answer questions, offe...

    1: Martina Pugliese, Data Science Lead, Mallzee

    I work as a Data Science Lead at Mallzee, Edinburgh-based tech startup helping retail making better decisions, aided by data. I’ve always got a bit of fetish for collecting data points, extracting patterns and visualising information, so back then I had decided to study Physics, just to preserve more of my sanity really. I believe and support the democratisation of knowledge, and that using data ethically makes us all better informed and freer.

    Working with data isn’t about using the latest AI research finding. F...

    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...

  • 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!
