Great day at DDDNorth yesterday, hope everyone enjoyed it. Thanks to all the team who helped during the preparation and on the day.
The slides from Rik Hepworth and my presentation on ‘Living the dream – Real world DevOps with Azure and VSTS’ are up at Github.
We were a late stand in session to cover for a presenter who could not attend on the day. So I hope it was not too much of let down, that we were not the speaker on the agenda, covered a different subject and did not match the title the spell checker converted out session title too. Though ‘Devils with Arms and Cats’ is maybe a good term for DevOps?
As to the grok talk I did at lunchtime on developing VSTS extension with VS Code, there are no slides; but look at these past posts, building VSTS tasks with Powershell and putting a release process around vsts extension development they are on similar subjects.
Thanks to everyone who came to my session at DDDNorth on SonarQube, hope you found it useful. The links to resources for my session are

In a beautiful synchronicity the ALM Rangers DevOps guidance for PowerShell DSC has been release at at the same time as I am doing my DDDNorth session ‘What is Desired State Configuration and how does it help me?’
This Rangers project has been really interesting to work on, and provide much of the core of my session for DDDNorth.
Well worth a look if you want to create your own DSC resources.
This morning DDDNorth’s agenda was published, registration opened and it was full. All within a couple of hours.
Looks like a good event if you managed to get a ticket. Glad I can get in as a speaker, else this mornings meetings would have left me on the waiting list
My DDDNorth session “What is Desired State Configuration and how does it help me?” has been accepted, looking forward to it
