Windows 10 now provides developers with a familiar Bash environment. This environment will allow users to: 

Windows accomplishes this through the Windows Subsystem for Linux which allows Ubuntu user-mode binaries provided by Canonical to run on Windows 10. This means that the command line utilities are the same as those that run within a native Ubuntu environment. In this session we will showcase scripting, code editing / compilation, and execution of X11 apps compiled for Linux using a local X11 server from within the Bash on Ubuntu on Windows environment. We will then discuss the implications of these features as they relate to existing developer workflows. Finally, we will show how to obtain the latest bits for Bash on Ubuntu on Windows that are in the Windows 10 Anniversary update.

While there will be light refreshments available, feel free to "brown bag" it and bring in food from the outside to eat during the social hour.
