MSPSUG Virtual Meeting: Avoiding Version Chaos in a Multi-Version #PowerShell World - Jan 12th

Join the Mississippi PowerShell User Group virtually on Tuesday, January 12th 2016 at 8:30pm Central Time when PowerShell MVP June Blender will present “PowersHELL: Avoiding Version Chaos in a Multi-Version PowerShell World”.

Beginning in Windows PowerShell 5.0, you can install multiple versions of the same module on the same computer; even in the same directory. Open source and PowerShellGet have revolutionized the availability of modules and Windows PowerShell 5.0+ will be continuously updated with Windows. The result is a myriad of interlocking parts with far more potential for conflicts in name, version, and functionality. Are we fated for the old "DLL Hell?" In this talk, I'll present the problem, describe some mitigating strategies, warn about their limitations, and provide a roadmap for version sanity.

The Mississippi PowerShell User Group Meetings are held online (via Skype for Business) on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:30pm Central Time and are free to attend. The system requirements to attend these online meetings can be found on the MSPSUG website under the “Attendee Info” section.
