I finally managed to complete the slides and had to add an intermission slide (this may be a very long talk, depending on the audience and questions); Definitely a three-course meal.

Some updates to the description of the talk:

A Trusted Git Development Work-flow

Learn why and how to maintain a cryptographically trusted contribution chain using GnuPG and git.

While we touch on git basics, motivate the usefulness for project owners and managers and have a slide or two on Drupal Configuration Management, this talk focusses on functionality that is useful to all teams that want to build provable trust into their collaborative source code development. Bring friends in dev, webdev, devops and sysops as well as your management if you need to introduce them to such topics ;-)

Looking forwards to speaking at the other meet-ups in our country soon too.

On my way...

Hello Everyone! I'm on my way and looking forward to seeing all of you. I see the weather is great. Like summer in Johannesburg. Thanks Mark for organising and phoning to check on everything too.
