NYC PowerShell UG Meeting - 6/16/2014 - Jeffrey Snover & Erin Chapple - Update on the Monad Manifesto

Jeffrey Snover, the man who probably needs no introduction for this crowd, will be here on June 16th, 2014 for a special session of the NYC PowerShell User Group. For those who don't know, Jeffrey is the creator of PowerShell! He is also a distinguished engineer and lead architect for Windows Server and System Center. He is only in town for two days and has graciously offered to give us some of his precious time.
Additionally, he is bringing Erin Chapple with him who many of you know from her years of service in Microsoft as a program manager for management and services on Windows Server (which included PowerShell!). Erin is now a partner group program manager in the Windows Server and System Center Division, where she leads the Cloud Infrastructure program management team. The Cloud Infrastructure Team delivers the core platform and administrative experiences necessary to minimize the cost and effort to deploy, manage, and operate Windows Server in a public or private cloud environments. Erin joined Microsoft in 1998 and has held several roles focused on delivering solutions for IT. Erin holds a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo. In 2005, she completed a master's in Applied Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle. In 2007, the University of Washington recognized her with a 50th Anniversary Alumni Award for her work supporting women in technology. In 2012, Erin's peers at Microsoft presented her with the Leadership Advocacy Award for Women. Erin was recognized as one of ten "Microsoft Woman Worth Watching" on Mary-Jo Foley's ZDNet Blog.
Update on the Monad Manifesto - Where are we and what lies ahead?
Jeffrey will be discussing the thing that started it all, the Monad Manifesto. We'll hear first-hand what was the intention, where the product has succeeded, and where it failed over the past 12 years. This presentation has a strong focus on what lies ahead for the Windows PowerShell language.
Unfortunately, we're still pulling a room together in Microsoft so we're not sure how many will be allowed to attend. Register to reserve a spot as we will be using the order in which you register to determine the cut-off if we cannot get one of the larger rooms.

Pizza and giveaways are being sponsored by SAPIEN, Makers of PowerShell Studio (formerly Primal Forms) and Primal Script
