Note that as of March 2017, the meeting day has changed!
Our meetups are always first Tuesday of a month at the Catalyst IT office above Pomeroys Pub.
We usually have a talk about anything that relates to Python programming language. Some months we run team coding challenges (aka "dojos"). These will be announced beforehand.
If you have a question about Python on or are stuck with some Python project, feel free to bring it up at the meetup. There will be people around who will be happy to help.
Doors open at 5:30pm, talk starts at 6pm.
At the start and end of the meetup, an informal conversation takes place, usually over a pint of beer.
Do not hesitate to pass this information around to whomever you think may be interested to hear and discuss all things Python.
PS: NZPUG's Code of Conduct applies for our local meetups and the online meetup.com group. Please read it up in case you haven't yet https://nzpug.org/code-of-conduct/
For July's Azure Evenings we have co-host Sudeep Ghatak talking about Azure Logic Apps.
Logic Apps provide a way to simplify and implement scalable integrations and workflows in the cloud and don't require complex programming or development skills. They provide a visual designer to model and automate your process as a series of steps known as a workflow.
Sudeep is going to demonstrate and explain the capabilities of this integration service for use.
Hope to see you there!
TBA. We'll update these details closer to the time. :)
Please Note : The TPN committee will be charging $5 for this meetup to cater for food and drink , so please ensure you have some cash on you.
The security testing seminar will be presented by the Manager of Planit's Security Testing Team and will cover:•
• The meaning of the word Cybersecurity and its relation to an organisation
• Threats and vulnerabilities• Quick introduction into risk assessment
• Types of security testing (application, network, penetration testing, vulnerability assessments) along with their pro’s and con’s
• Security as part of a design• Security as part of the development lifecycle
• What security testing functional testers can do (with a demonstration)
This seminar will be highly interactive so attendees can experience the material and, with help from the tutor, discover the solutions themselves.
This month we have representatives from CERT NZ coming to chat to us.
The world of cyber security is fast-moving and complex. CERT NZ joins other people and organisations — both locally and internationally — who are already working in this space, to help New Zealand better understand and stay resilient to cyber security threats.
CERT NZ works to support businesses, organisations and individuals who are affected (or may be affected) by cyber security incidents. We provide trusted and authoritative information and advice, while also collating a profile of the threat landscape in New Zealand.
CERT NZ welcomes the opportunity to introduce who we are, our key services and our future plans to ISIGs, and provide a picture of what we have been seeing in reported incidents, in the two months since our launch.
Look forward to it!
