By popular demand, Tome (MVP and author of the PowerShell Bible) will be presenting the regular expression talk he gave to us back in 2010. This is a great opportunity to see, learn, and understand regular expressions.
Regular Expressions have been employed by every serious scripting language for the past 15 years. PowerShell’s adoption and implementation of Regular Expressions has ensured that it is taken seriously by serious scripters. The presentation will explore the history and syntax of regular expressions. It will give a deep dive into the PowerShell cmdlets that use Regular Expressions as well as the .NET native methods that can be invoked using PowerShell. It will give a detailed understanding of the internals of Microsoft’s implementation of Regular Expressions and how it differs from other languages. Real-world scenarios for using regular expressions will be explored.

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.
Join us this month for a great getting started session where John Mello will be presenting on the PowerShell pipeline. We also plan to have a Script Club following John's talk so be sure to bring along any scripts that you're working on. You definitely don't want to miss this informative session especially if you're relatively new to PowerShell.

NOTE: Rescheduled from 1/24/2013 to 2/11/2013
Our 12th official meetup is coming up fast. For December we're planning something special. In the spirit of sharing our group will host its first Script Exchange. This of this as an evening of "Shell and Tell". Each of you should challenge yourself to automate *something* with PowerShell - at work, at home, doesn't matter. Bring it with you to the Script Exchange, where we'll pair off and you'll have the chance to teach what you did to others and learn from what their work as well.
Keith Mayer (Technical Evangelist, Microsoft) demonstrated all 2,400 new cmdlets with Windows Server 2012 and PowerShell V3. Well actually, he demonstrated a lot of functionality associated with the Hyper-V and Storage cmdlets.
Josh Miller will present an overview of various options for reporting the output from a PowerShell script.
It looks like we need to take November off. There are still no L trains running so Tome cannot get to the Microsoft office to give the requested talk about regular expressions. Also, with no one working downtown it hardly seems like we'll get much of a turnout. Our next meeting will be December 10th. We'll have RSVP information up in the next week or so.
