Doctor Scripto

Summary: The Scripting Wife reveals the session details for the Charlotte Windows PowerShell Saturday event.Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I will turn the keyboard over to the lovely Scripting Wife. Teresa, the screen is yours… Hello fellow PowerShellers!  I am so excited to be involved in the planning and co-organizing of PowerShell Saturday #007, which will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on Feb 8, 2014. Today I want to share the list of speakers and sessions. Remember, there could be some slight modifications as life happens all around us; but this is a pretty close, if not exact, list of speakers and sessions. Hope to see you in Charlotte.  And before I forget, there are only 75 days remaining before the event. I encourage you to go online and get signed up while this is fresh on your mind, so you do not get left out.
