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.

In-Person Meeting in April?

I'm going to do the presentation this month for the Virtual PowerShell UserGroup, so it's a perfect opportunity for us to actually meet together in person here in Rochester.
 
However, if there are only a few people who want to come in person (or if the majority would prefer), I'd rather do a geek dinner on another night, and have time to chat and socialize and answer questions!
 

So, what do you think?

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.
 
This meeting will be less formal than the usual slide-deck-and-demos presentation, and we're really hoping that you will participate by searching ahead of time for some interesting, fun, or just plain weird uses of PowerShell ... and bringing them to share.

PowerShell Web Access and Restricted Remoting Endpoints

The February meeting of the Upstate NY PowerShell User Group in Rochester will be on February 7th (please note this is a change from the usual 2nd Thursday, as that would be Valentine's day). As usual we will meet at New Horizons in Rochester and will start at 6:30PM (with Pizza & networking at 6PM).
 
Our speaker this month is Warren Frame, a Systems Engineer from Rochester General who will walk us through some remoting features and API.

December Script Club (Dec 13)

Here in Rochester we tend to have presentations almost every month, but every once in awhile, we've got to have a Script Club, and we usually do that in December.

We are meeting on the 2nd Thursday of the month (December 13th), as usual, and we're having PowerShell Script Club.

What is a PowerShell Script Club?

Script Clubs are like a hands on lab without a set topic or teacher. You bring an idea for a script, and ask your fellow PowerShell users for help getting the script written.  We'll break up into groups and we'll work on scripts. Please bring your ideas, your challenges, your laptops, and your half-written scripts.  At New Horizons we're blessed with a lab full of computers, so you don't have to bring a laptop to script (in fact, feel free to just bring your idea, or put a draft of your script on http://PoshCode.org or http://Pastebin.com), but it obviously helps to have whatever you're used to.

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).

June 19th: Pre-Summer Script Club!

Summer is nearly upon us, and our gracious hosts at New Horizons have asked us to forgo meeting in July and August, so with this one last official meeting before September, we're going to have a real Script Club. Several times in the last few months we've planned on having a presentation and a script club, and it hasn't worked out that way, so this time we're going to do just the script club.

November & December cancelled in Rochester

So, after cancelling November at the last minute due to mandatory overtime at my job, we're going to voluntarily cancel December's meeting just because it's scheduled the Tuesday before Christmas, and we're all too busy.

I'll post up my plans for January in a couple of weeks, after some informal polling on the mailing list.
