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.
Microsoft MVP for PowerShell Joel Bennett will be presenting and doing a demo walking you through the basics of Windows Desired State Configuration: What it is, and how you can manage your systems using DSC. We'll get into the basics of how it works, what you can test and change with it, and if we have time, how you can extend it!
As usual we're meeting at New Horizons at 6:30PM and will be having a Pizza Social at 6PM (which you must RSVP for so I can get enough pizza).
I'm trying out MeetUp.com, so please RSVP there, and join the group if you want to be sure not to miss anything (I got a 3 month subscription, so we'll see how that goes), and RSVP if you're planning on attending in October.
