Seattle Script Club, October 2014 29th

Script Club - Wednesday, October 29th


The Seattle Script Club is a great way to get people up and running with PowerShell, and a great place to meet other PowerShell enthusiasts.  Club meetings are helpful for newbies, experts, and everything in between.  They're a wonderful way to learn new things about PowerShell and improve your scripting skills.  Oh, and there's free pizza too (courtesy of Edgile, Inc).

We hope to see many familiar faces at Script Club, and meet new scripters in the Seattle area.

The Seattle Script Club is coordinated by James Brundage from Start-Automating, Craig Martin from Edgile, and Andy Schneider from Avanade.

4-6PM - Open Scripting Time

6-7PM - Feature Presentation - Cmdlet Design by James Brundage

7-?PM - Socialization

Open Scripting Time (4-5PM, Conf Room 18/1525)

                Bring in your troublesome scripts and get help fixing them.  Debug your problems with PowerShell experts.  Work on whatever you’d like.  Open Scripting Time will occur on Microsoft campus, and will rotate monthly to a Microsoft building close to a group in need.    Since Open Scripting Time will be on Microsoft campus, badge access or guest access will be required. 

PowerShell Presentation (6-7PM, Conf Room 18/1525)

                Each month, we’ll be doing a 1-hour presentation on a topic of interest to Seattle area scripters.  This club presentation is on PowerShell Cmdlet design.  Each presentation will be followed by extensive Q&A and interesting show and tell by other members of the group.

Socialization (7-?PM, Some Place Nearby TBD):

                After your brains have been thoroughly stuffed with PowerShell knowledge, clear your head and chat with your fellow scripters.  Each month we’ll be hanging out after Script Club and enjoying the company of our fellow scripters.  The first round for new attendees to Script Club is on Start-Automating.
