What we're about

Come Ye - Coders, Developers, DevOps, Powershell enthusiasts, and lovers of automation !!

If you work with Microsoft Windows, this is the meetup for you. We are PowerShell experts teaching how to leverage this automation platform in your enterprise.

Every month we have speakers who will present on topics designed to help you improve your knowledge and skills in PowerShell.

Monthly Calendar
We usually meet once every month, on the 2nd calendar Monday at Microsoft 11, Times Square Office. At times, we do make last minute schedule changes to accommodate a VIP speaker, or a Powershell MVP visiting New York.

Tentative Schedule
- 6:00-6:30 PM - Pizzas and catch-up, sponsored by Sapien (www.sapien.com)
- 6:30-8:00 PM - Powershell talks
- 8:00 PM onwards - We usually grab drinks at Heartland Brewery across the street.

Technical level of content
This is an oft repeated question, and here is our take on it.

We subscribe to the sentiments of Antoine de Saint-Exupery, when it comes to choosing topics and speakers for a user-group talk.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."

We do cover beginner and intermediate topics. We also revisit a few topics which we might have covered in the past. However, we strive to focus on the "new and cool" stuff in the Powershell ecosystem.

You also get the added benefit of having 2 Powershell MVP's in the house - Tome Tanasovski and Doug Finke. They would love to answer any questions you may have on Powershell or the meaning of life.

Azure PowerShell vs. Azure CLI: Duel at the command line

For a couple of years, Microsoft has had two command-line tools for managing Azure resources. Azure PowerShell and Azure CLI. Both tools are cross-platform and open source. Both are frequently updated and support the fast pace of the Azure changes. You can use them locally or in the Azure Cloud Shell. They provide a similar user experience; however, they are not exactly the same. Some differences are easily visible, some differences happen behind the scenes. What is the right tool for you? Do you need to pick one, or are there any benefits in using them together? Join us to learn about their capabilities, and pros and cons of using them, to help you make a choice. BIO Aleksandar Nikolic is a Microsoft Azure MVP, a Cloud and Datacenter Management MVP, a co-founder of PowerShellMagazine.com, and a community manager of PowerShell.com. Aleksandar is also a Microsoft Azure Advisor. He has more than 18 years of experience as a system administrator.
