August 2015 PowerShell Spotlight
Summary: Microsoft PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson, talks about community activities.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. In case you haven’t noticed, I have been turning the keyboard over to Teresa (PowerShell MVP, and my real life wife, aka the Scripting Wife) once a month so she can spotlight community happenings. Today is the day for her August post. Take it away Teresa…
I hope you have had a scriptastic month. I have been looking at the calendar and checking the RAM in my head to share upcoming events with you.
The first item is the Nashville PowerShell User Group meeting. The normal date is the second Tuesday of the month. However, in October, Ed and I will be in Nashville for other business, and they are going to hold a special meeting on Wednesday, October 28. There are no details posted online yet, but you can save the date if you like.
Next I would like to talk a little about the PowerShell Cruise coming up in June 2016. I am so excited about this event—it looks really great, but we will not be attending. I can’t state loud enough or long enough that Ed and I are in full support of this event and would love to attend, but I am so scared of the ocean that I simply cannot get on a cruise ship. So please don’t think we are not in support of this event because we are not there. I suggested looking at having a similar event on a train. So maybe one of these days, that can be looked into for a PowerShell event.
Last, but not least this month, let me mention the 2016 PowerShell Summit NA, which will be April 4-6, 2016 in Redmond, WA. The call for topics is currently open through October 1, 2015. Please go to this link on Richard Siddaway’s Blog for instructions about submitting a topic: PowerShell Summit NA 2016 – Call for Topics.
That is all for now. Don’t forget to attend and support your local user groups. If you do not have one, there is the Virtual User group, and a few of the in-person groups have broadcasting abilities. Let me know if you need any help identifying a group.
Join Ed tomorrow when he will present a video recap about Windows PowerShell module manifests.
I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
