The Charlotte PowerShell User Group had a great meeting in late April with a special guest presenter, Lee Holmes. Due to this occurrence and scheduling conflicts for the month of May, our regularly scheduled meeting will not occur. Stay tuned for information about our next meeting which will occur on our normal day (1st Thursday of every month), June 4th.
Charlotte hackers, our regularly scheduled meeting on April 2nd will not be occurring. Instead we will have our monthly meeting on April 22nd. Can you hear the drum roll in the distance? It will continue to build to a crescendo as April 22nd approaches. Lee Holmes will be speaking at the meeting.
In this highly interactive session, Principle PowerShell developer Lee Holmes shares some of his favorite PowerShell tips and tricks. Attendees are encouraged to share their favorite PowerShell tricks as well, and so the session should be both fun and educational.
This is a remarkably unique opportunity to interact with one of the cornerstone developers of PowerShell. We expect a large turnout given the proximity to the PowerShell Summit, so we are requiring everyone to RSVP this time around.
In addition, we're giving Charlotte PowerShell Group members first crack at the reservations. Ed Wilson will be promoting this event heavily on his blog starting March 30, and it will likely be promoted as part of the PowerShell summit marketing as well. My point is - the seats will go fast. Get yours while you can.
Everyone wanting to attend this event will need to sign-up and join the Charlotte PowerShell User Group on MeetUp. Click on over and save your spot.
We look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying a great meeting with Lee.
We will be bringing you a presentation by Jason Walker, @AutomationJason, at our next meeting. Jason will be discussing the Anatomy of a DSC Resource. The session will dive into the anatomy of a DSC resource and will provide an understanding of what it takes to develop your own DSC resources.
Food and drinks will be provided. Everyone is welcome. Please RSVP on the MeetUp event page so we can plan food accordingly.
It has been quite a busy past couple of months and we have not had our monthly get-together. We are working to get back on track and will start in February. This month, I will be discussing IIS and PowerShell at our meeting. For those of you that do not know me, I am an IIS MVP and a PowerShell hack. I would like to tailor the discussion, demos, and examples to address specific questions or needs that the members have. You can also check out my powershell specific blogs here. Feel free to tweet to @owterri with any content requests that you have.
Look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks.
Shell and Tell is back.. bring your scripts you've been working on and show your PowerShell pride by displaying your scripting prowess. We'll have food and drinks, so come join the fun!
Everyone is welcome. Please RSVP on the MeetUp event page so we can plan food accordingly.
The monthly Charlotte PowerShell Users Group meeting is coming up quickly. Mark Thursday, June 5th on your calendars. All of our MIA leaders should be at this one. Hopefully we will be able to personally congratulate the Teresa, aka ScriptingWife, on her recent MVP Award. Jump on over to the MeetUp page and let us know if we will see you there.
The regularly scheduled meeting for the group will not be held due to overlap with the PowerShell Summit and travel related to it for some of our members. If there is interest in scheduling a side meeting, we can do that to accommodate those of us that are not attending the Summit.
If not, we will be back on track and ready for YASG! (Yet Another Scripting Game) on 6/5/2014. Looks like it is going to be a good one.
The monthly Charlotte PowerShell Users Group meeting will be held tomorrow, April 3rd at 6PM EDT. The meeting is held at the Microsoft Charlotte Office (8055 Microsoft Way, Charlotte, NC).
This looks to be an awesome meeting with guest speaker Jason Walker. Jason will demonstrate running PowerShell scripts in a cool and novel way – from a website. If you would like to attend, please jump on over to the MeetUp page and let us know you are coming.
PowerShell Saturday was a huge success. Thank you to all of the speakers, event organizers, and most of all attendees for making it a great day. A new Iron Scripter was crowned and received this awesome trophy.
Congrats to Stephen Owen aka @SRed13!
There were many great sessions for both beginners and advanced scripters. Some of the speakers even posted slides, videos, and scripts of their presentations. Check out Brian Wilhite’s, @bwhilhite1979, ‘CIM’narios downloads from the event. Ashley McGlone, @GoateePFE, posted his beginner sessions including slides, video, and the coveted scripts here.
If you attended and haven’t requested your free ebook from O’Reilly (the flyer was in the goody bag), you might be surprised by the list that is available.
Until next time, Happy Scripting!
Last year was the first annual PowerShell Saturday in Charlotte, NC. We were 002. This year, we are back and will be blowing minds in 007 style. We have some great speakers and sessions lined up and there are still tickets available.
The popular Iron Scripter! competition will also be back.
