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.
The Calgary Powershell User Group has been formed to build a vibrant local community of Powershell enthusiasts in the Calgary (Canada) area.
The idea is to grow this group into a fun and educative forum for learning and discussing PowerShell as a tool for managing various IT environments. Whether you are a System Administrator, Developers, DBA, an expert or new user of Powershell - and you are in the Calgary area - you are invited to contribute to, and learn from, this group.
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?
Hi there! 2nd session of PowerShell User Group Japan will be held in Osaka on 12th April 2014. The session will with Waka-san the man who really likes PowerShell in Osaka.

Mr. Mutaguchi, the Microsoft MVP for Windows PowerShell. also have a session for beginner.
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).
While Microsoft gets its new home in Times Square, we will be hosted downtown at the offices of Stack Exchange for this event!
