Grab your favorite beverage and join us for a evening of learning PowerShell. This month is our famous Shell 'n Tell. Instead of a speaker, it is an opportunity to show a script you would like advice on or you can show us something you did that might be interesting to someone attending. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or advanced, you have something to offer. Trying to learn PowerShell? Tell us what you would like to learn more about and we'll provide resources to do it!
PowerShell used to be just a windows thing, but now it's a cross platform world. Join Chris Blackden for a tour of the Windows Subsystem for Linux and how it works with PowerShell. Chris is a DevOps engineer for the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and spends his days managing Terraform and Jenkins pipelines in the AWS cloud. He will be talking about running PowerShell in Windows AND Linux environments and sharing some best practices to make life easier and productive. This talk will cover everything from Installation and configuration to tips and tricks for making connections and accessing data across different platforms.

Data Arrays are fundamental building block to work with in Power-Shell, yet working with arrays can sometimes be tricky as Power-Shell provides more than one way to interact with them. Join Wes Carroll as he explores the basics of working with arrays covering a range of topics including what an array is and what it isn’t, array creation, accessing array values, manipulation of arrays, and performance considerations when working with larger arrays.

Did you know that you can use PowerShell in Azure DevOps inside of a serverless container? In this session, we will cover how to use Azure Repos to save your code and how to use Azure Pipeline to run it in the serverless container. Vukašin Terzić (@MrTerzic) is a Microsoft Azure Cloud and PowerShell enthusiast and experienced IT consultant and solution architect. He blogs about Azure at http://AzureIs.Fun This is an online meeting and all are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to receive the meeting link on the day of the event.
With the release of PowerShell 6 and 7, we can now use SSH to remote to our Linux and Mac devices. Let's explore how to set up the operating systems and see PowerShell remoting in action across multiple platforms. During this session we will go over how to set up PowerShell remoting using WinRM as well as how to set up remoting using SSH with cross-platform demos and examples. Including Windows –> Linux and Linux –> Windows. A link to the remote meeting will be sent to all who RSVP by 5PM Pacific on the day of the event.
We are meeting virtually this month! Bring your favorite beverage, put your feet up and join us online for PowerShell. WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) is the safest, easiest and coolest way to get Linux tools and experience without the need to spin up a Linux box. It's available right in Windows 10. WSL is not a toy! WSL can provide you with valuable tools which are often native only to Linux. What if you could have your familiar Windows environment combined with the power of a true Linux shell (Bash)? How would you like to combine the power of Linux commands and tools, into your PowerShell scripts? This Meetup will introduce you to ways in which you can combine the power of Windows and Linux to add more tools to your toolbag. Q: What is the advantage of using a Bash command in a PowerShell script?A: In general, less code is better. Bash code is often more compact than PowerShell code. Q: If PowerShell is more modern than Bash, why would I want to use Bash?A: Bash has been around a lot longer than PowerShell. Finding code snippets for Bash is easy. Q: Can you give me an example of using PowerShell vs. using Bash?Date in epoch format:PowerShellGet-Date (Get-Date).ToUniversalTime() -UFormat %sPowerShell calling Bashbash -c 'date +%s' Here is an article written by our speaker, Tay Kratzer ( ) which demonstrates a PowerShell script calling a Bash script to perform a port check. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/combining-linux-windows-power-tay-kratzer/
Join Phil Bossman as he talks about one of PowerShell’s Core Concepts: Functions. Come and walk through building your first function. We’ll discuss the parts of a function, how to use them, and ways to effectively use functions to accomplish your goals. We’ll also discuss creating Advanced Functions and how they can improve your scripts. Phil Bossman (@Schlauge) is a PowerShell enthusiast with a passion for learning. Phil is currently a Citrix Architect and End User Computing expert in the Raleigh, NC area. Phil is a co-organizer of the Research Triangle PowerShell User Group (@rtpsug). This is an online meeting and all are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to receive the meeting link on the day of the event.
Hi everyone! We will be hosting a remote meetup next month to talk about how working from home has been going for all of us, in particular how PowerShell may be helping you to work effectively during this time. Let's knowledge share and bring our ideas and processes to the table. This has been scheduled on a Monday instead of Tuesday due to Cinco de Mayo, not that anyone would likely be celebrating as usual but we wanted to be considerate of those who may want to be away from the computer at that time. We will send a meeting link to those who have RSVPed by the day of the event at 5PM.
Lets take a look at developing a PowerShell module with Stucco, Psake, and PowerShellBuild. We'll start with the Plaster template Stucco to create our module scaffolding then leverage PowerShellBuild's Psake tasks to help automate a lot of the heavy lifting associated with building a PowerShell module (e.g. testing, documentation, compiling, publishing). Speaker Joey Piccola (https://twitter.com/joeypiccola). • What to bringBring your willingness to learn and questions about PowerShell. Plus thoughts on future topics to discuss at our monthly meetings. • Important to knowNo food or drink provided, but plenty of knowledge being shared.
#BridgeConf is a one-day single track live-streamed conference-style event for PowerShell, automation, programming, infrastructure, sysadmin, and other miscellaneous nerds around the world. This event doesn’t have a singular focus, but it is born from the PowerShell Discord/Slack community. The most popular, and most socially engaging channel on the PowerShell Discord/Slack network is #bridge (hence, #BridgeConf). In a world where we’re all disappointed that so many wonderful conferences and other in-person events are (rightfully) canceled, #BridgeConf is an opportunity for the PowerShell community to quickly unite to do what we all do best: share knowledge, and have fun. See you there! CFP (closes midnight April 14th PDT): https://www.papercall.io/bridgeconf
