Virtual PowerShell Group
This is the virtual PowerShell Group. We have an ongoing discussion channel available for support with PowerShell questions on the chat.freenode.net IRC server #PowerShell channel. You can find someone online there almost any time of the day or night, but it's busiest during US office hours and late evening up until around midnight east coast time (GMT -5).
We have a collaborative editing server set up for sharing source during discussions, which you should feel free to use if you want to paste more than a couple lines of code.
We also have a few regularly scheduled events: Live presentations the first Thursday of each month via Google Plus Events, and weekly discussions centered around the PowerScripting Podcast show. The G+ presentation events are scheduled each month and should show up below, the podcast discussions happen during the live recording of the show (usually at 9:30 EST on Thursday) in the #PowerScriptingPodcast channel (web-based access is here).
