About Us

PowerShell.org is an activity of The DevOps Collective, Inc., a US 501(c)(3) nonprofit public¬†charity. We have no legal owners; by definition, we are owned by the US public. As a charity, it is a violation of US law for any individual or entity to gain a financial benefit (e.g., a “profit”) from the organization. Thus, we do not have shareholders or other owners.

Our Mission

We have two broad goals within the PowerShell and DevOps community:

  • Provide educational opportunities to members of the community either for free or at a break-even cost
  • Provide members of the community with opportunities (and a platform from which) to help each other

Meet the Team

We have an all-volunteer staff:

  • Don Jones ([email protected]) is President. Note that Don’s work obligations have him stepping back from daily operations here; if you need assistance, consider contacting one of our other team members first.
  • James Petty ([email protected]) is our CEO, in charge of daily operations.
  • VACANT – Director of Finance and Treasurer
  • Missy Januszko and Warren Frame are our Directors of Summit Content (reach them via [email protected]).
  • VACANT – Director of Global Events.
  • Mike Kanakos ([email protected], [email protected]) is our Director of Community Engagement, including our PowerShell Saturday Booster Programs.
  • Tommy Maynard is a regular contributing writer for PowerShell.org.

Our [email protected] email alias will get messages to whomever is responsible for the website from moment to moment.

We would like to recognize four former Board members (from our pre-nonprofit days) for their valuable service:

  • Kirk Munro, who helped co-found the organization
  • Dave Wyatt, who pioneered (and still manages) our online build service
  • Jason Helmick who did significant work in establishing the organization as a non-profit and helped build our community.
  • Richard Siddaway who did significant work in establishing our community and Summit.
  • Chris Gannon-Jones who was our event and logistics Director since day 1.
