Virtual PowerShell Group

ContactEmail: 

This is the virtual PowerShell Group. We have an ongoing discussion channel available for support with PowerShell questions on the chat.freenode.net IRC server #PowerShell channel. You can find someone online there almost any time of the day or night, but it's busiest during US office hours and late evening up until around midnight east coast time (GMT -5).
We have a collaborative editing server set up for sharing source during discussions, which you should feel free to use if you want to paste more than a couple lines of code.
We also have a few regularly scheduled events:  Live presentations the first Thursday of each month via Google Plus Events, and weekly discussions centered around the PowerScripting Podcast show.  The G+ presentation events are scheduled each month and should show up below, the podcast discussions happen during the live recording of the show (usually at 9:30 EST on Thursday) in the #PowerScriptingPodcast channel (web-based access is here).

Meeting Time: 
24 hours a day

April 3rd: Creating and Packaging Modules

This month's virtual user group presentation will be about creating and packaging PowerShell modules!

PowerShell MVP Joel Bennett (yes, that's me) will present about authoring PowerShell modules, including tips, tricks and best practices for writing modules and functions that work well together (and behave properly in the pipeline).

We will also take a look at the new PoshCode module packaging module: a powerful new way to distribute, install, and rely on dependencies between PowerShell modules.

March: Active Directory Health Check

Sorry for the late notice here!  I posted this last month to Google+ Events, and thought I'd posted it here, but clearly didn't.  If you didn't already get a G+ event invite, please feel free to email me (Jaykul) at HuddledMasses.org and ask me to add you to that list.
 
In any case, this Thursday, March 6th, is this month's Rochester PowerShell User Group, and it will once again be purely virtual (next month we'll try to meet in person, I have a car again now).

February 6th - Doug Finke on the PowerShell parser and AST

PowerShell Abstract Syntax Tree (AST)

Writing PowerShell scripts are powerful and productive. Building tools for PowerShell to extract and manipulate the script itself can make you more productive. In this talk we will take a tour of the Windows PowerShell parser and AST (abstract syntax tree) showing you how it can be used to make your job easier and ways to create tools to make you more productive.

December Virtual Meeting (Dec 5, 2013)

Based on the feedback from the folks who have shown up at the Rochester in-person meetings the last two months, in December we're going to try meeting virtually!
 
The meeting will still be held at 6:30PM Eastern on December 5th (the first Thursday), but we will meet on Google+ Hangouts or Microsoft Lync (going to do some testing this week to see which).
 
We will see how that goes (and how everyone feels about it), but I'm tentatively planning on meeting the same way in January on the 2nd

What's New in PowerShell: October 10th in Rochester

We are kicking off the fall a little late this year, but October 10th we're going to start off with a "What's new in PowerShell?" session.
PowerShell 4 is shipping just barely a year after PowerShell 3, thanks to the release of Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 (it will be available for Windows 7/Server 2008 as well) and brings with it Desired State Configuration, which might just change the face of Windows system administration.

March Madness: The fun stuff you can do with PowerShell

Thursday March 14th, at 6:30PM, Microsoft PowerShell MVP Joel Bennett will be speaking and sharing the diversity of the projects in the PowerShell community.

Creating your first Module - November 8th in Rochester

Now that we've talked (last month) about why we would write PowerShell Modules, we're ready to talk more about what goes into them.  On November 8th, Joel Bennett (Microsoft PowerShell MVP) will be presenting again, so please join us as we discuss what goes into a module, how to get started on your own, and what the important parts of a Module Manifest are (and how to write one that works in both PowerShell 2 and 3).
