PowerShell MVP Jan Egil Ring will give a presentation on some of the new features, before the meeting participants will get to explore the preview version of PowerShell 3.0 on their own computers.

We are planning our first Powershell meeting for Saturday, September 17th at 9am. Larry Weiss, co-leader of the Poweshell SIG of the North Texas PC User Group, has been kind enough to offer to join forces with us. The initial meeting will be help at King of Glory Lutheran Church, 6411 LBJ Expressway, Dallas, Texas 75240 in the basement. There are several rooms downstairs, wireless connectivity and plenty of opportunities to meet with other Powershellers. Please feel free to forward details to anyone you know who might be interested in joining. Tweet.
We are kicking off this season with a forward-looking event: Come join us as we discuss Windows 8 and PowerShell 3, and what we've learned from Microsoft's BUILD conference and playing with the preview bits! There's sure to be a lot of stuff you didn't hear about, and Joel Bennett (Microsoft MVP) will be presenting and leading the discussion. This presentation will be almost entirely demo, with plenty of time for questions and exploration!
There will be free Pizza!
There will be T-Shirts, books, and other goodies to give away.
For the September meeting of the Atlanta PowerShell User Group we have a very special guest speaker, Don Jones. Don will be speaking about his book Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches, and all things PowerShell.
I have also received news that the Microsoft Scripting Guy himself, Mr. Ed Wilson will be stopping by with his partner in crime the Scripting Wife so we could be in for some really out of this world discussions between the three of them.
PowerShell MVP, author, and founder of the UK PowerShell User Group, Richard Siddaway, will walk us through an introduction to WMI, the cmdlets, WQL filters and some of the thing you can do with WMI. Plus coverage of a few gotchas you'll want to watch out for.
Version Control for PowerShell
Version control, revision control and source control are terms used to describe the practice of tracking and controlling changes to files. Version control is critical to software developers for keeping track of source code changes, so why is it rarely used by IT Professionals that maintain production scripts? Learn about the benefits of version control and see a demo of TortoiseHg, a Windows shell extension for the Mercurial source control management tool.
The Summer was long and hot, but it's PowerShell time again! We're back!
Advanced functions and modules enable you to make code that can be used time and time again in flexible ways. Come find out how it works from the author of the PowerShell Bible. Cmdlet binding, Parameter Sets, psd1/psm1 files, parameter validation, pipelinability and much much more. We're going to dive deep into what is possible, and Tome will provide some examples of templates he uses to create common cmdlet types like ConvertTo- cmdlets.
Additionally, we have a ton of prizes and swag, so we're going to do our first PowerShell live-action scripting games. Bring a laptop to join in the fun, but don't feel obligated. There will be plenty to learn as we see how people tackle a few quickfire challenges. There is one goal for this contest, PURE SPEED! The fastest script writer who meets the requirements of the challenge wins!
