What you see is what you get.
Hi, Jeff Rumsey here, I work at TWC in their IT Core Services Team; AD, PKI, DNS, PRINT, FILE, etc for the enterprise. I do a lot of PowerShell for both simple scripts to automate task to full blown programs.
I enjoyed it and it was interesting. I'm somewhat torn about the scripting games as a whole. It's one thing to assist in debugging a web-site and also going against others with different skill sets on a particular task. I realize it was meant to be fun, but as Alan said, some people don't like to loose. I thought the PowerShell users group was to increase the use of PowerShell among professionals and allow the novice, like myself, to take away or be introduced to a new skill on a specific topic. Suggestions, like functions, arrays, debugging, error catching, new cmdlets, etc. Have an open forum discussing what the new version of PowerShell is and how it might improve / change how scripts are executed. How these changes might affect current AD, SQL, Exchange, SharePoint cmdlets. Discuss what someone is working on and have the the experts and group work together to get the problem corrected, logically or programmatically. Anyways, I enjoyed it and I will be back.
