Nottingham PowerShell user group October Meeting


The first bit of important news is that we have a new venue. Following some issues at the VAT we will now be meeting at 38 Carrington Street (, which is the name of the venue and it's address

As usual I'll be around the venue from 6 if you want to pop in early. We'll have a mid meeting break between the sessions for informal chats, and there'll probably be more chatting over a drink after the sessions as well.

Our first session tonight is timely with Bonfire night coming up soon after the meetup.

Leo D'Arcy , one of our regular attendees and speaker at outher user groups will be presenting, in his own words:
In this session, I will discuss and hopefully demonstrate through videos the creation of a PowerShell module to connect to a Fireworks control system. This system uses a proprietary control protocol running over a serial port. I will discuss the process of creating the module, how to interact with a serial connection using PowerShell and hopefully how these concepts can be used in more practical environments.

The second half of the evening I'd like to have a bit of a roundtable. I'm interested in how the group would like to see the group develop, and which topics areas they'd like me look at for future meetings. It'll also be a change to discuss any PS issues/ideas you've got as well

Hope to see you there. Any questions, drop me a line.
