PowerShell spotlight: February 2016


Summary: Windows PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson, shares her roundup of Windows PowerShell activities for the coming months.

Hello scripters,

Teresa Wilson here. I hope you had a marvelous weekend and are ready to tackle this week. Ed is finally getting back to normal and we have a few trips coming up—all Windows PowerShell related.

Arizona PowerShell User Group March 1 in Phoenix

First of all, we will be in Phoenix, AZ on March 1, 2016 for the Arizona PowerShell User Group (AZPOSH) meeting. I also heard from a little birdie that my good friend Jason Helmick will be there. The signup is not available yet (they are still promoting their February meeting) but as soon as it is, I will tweet it and put it on the Scripting Guys Facebook page. I might even try to talk Ed into posting another short blog about it with signup information.

PowerShell Saturday #010 March 19 in Tampa

Next is PowerShell Saturday #010 in Tampa, Florida at the University of South Florida (USF) on March 19, 2016. We have an amazing lineup of speakers and sessions. There will be something for everyone—no matter what your skill level. We have five MVPs, six Microsoftees, and two user group leaders confirmed. Here is a link to information about the PowerShell Saturday #010 speakers. This will be a day loaded with PowerShell goodness.

I am not going to write about the sessions in this post. For more information, please read the Session synopses. We will be adding a few more sessions in the upcoming days. There will be four tracks with five sessions in each track. This means roughly five hours of training for you.

We are not doing this to make money. We are charging a small fee to cover the cost of the food, and if we have any leftover, we will buy more swag to give away.

Our sponsors are on board to help us with the expenses that go along with an event. We could not put on a day of training like this without the sponsors. And we also want to recognize the speakers who pay their own travel expenses and the companies that pay the travel for their employees to attend. We have speakers coming from Canada, Wisconsin, Utah, Tennessee, Ohio, Georgia, and all over Florida.

I would be remiss if I did not mention Ed and my cohost for this day. Microsoft evangelist, Blain Barton (@blainbar on Twitter), has been amazing in getting this show on the road. Our other partner in crime is Will Anderson, our webmaster. Will is an MVP and Honorary Scripting Guy  (@GamerLivingWill on Twitter).

With all this knowledge and PowerShell goodness just waiting to unfold, what are you waiting for? Sign up today: Register: PowerShell Saturday #010.
