What we're about

We are a PowerShell User Group on the South Coast of the UK for coders of all experience levels, typically meeting in Southampton.

PowerShell is used extensively not only on the Microsoft Windows ecosystem, but also to manage many third party systems, such as Citrix and VMware. In 2016 it was made open source and is heading towards full availability for Linux and MacOS. If you are an experienced PowerShell user we'll offer an opportunity for you to share with others, or if you are only just starting out then this will be the place for you to learn more.
