About PhillyPoSH
The Philadelphia PowerShell User Group (PhillyPoSH) is a group of IT Professionals interested in learning and using Windows PowerShell. We encourage PowerShell users of any skill level (from newbie to expert and everything in between) to join.

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month at the local Microsoft office in Malvern, PA. We usually have a quick discussion of community news and upcoming events, along with a 30-45 minute technical presentation. Presentations may run longer if we have a guest speaker, but otherwise we usually wrap with a Script Club, where we work together on a particular scripting problem to learn new skills and techniques!

Philadelphia Meeting – June 5th 2014


Join us Thursday, June 5th when Jeff Hicks will present on “Getting Started with Desired State Configuration (DSC)”.

Getting Started with Desired State Configuration (DSC)
DSC is the big game changer for IT Pros. With DSC you no longer have to write PowerShell scripts to manage and configure your servers. Now you use PowerShell to build and manage server configurations. Want your server configured a specific way? Build a configuration and the server configures itself! In this presentation we will look at the principals of DSC and explore what it takes to get started using DSC in your environment.

Philadelphia Meeting – Feb 7th, 2013 – 6-8pm


Join us on Thursday, February 7th for a night of scripting with Jeff Hicks! Our topic will be “Getting Started with PowerShell Advanced Functions”
