For those who want to re-live the fun, and those who are curious about what they missed, here are my slides from last night's NEBytes presentation:
What’s New in PowerShell v3 and Introducing Script Explorer
At the end there was a discussion about books to help you get started with PowerShell. There are some really good books out there, but to reduce the cost of entry, I'd suggest you start with some free ebooks. You can check out this post
on my blog which links to some resources, and you may also find PowerShell cheat sheets
useful (I did when I was getting used to the syntax). Also, look out for announcements around the public availability of the Microsoft Script Explorer for Windows PowerShell.
I also asked whether anyone would be interested in a North East PowerShell Script Club? I want to discuss with those who might want to take part about how they'd like it to work for them, but one idea is to meet for half an hour before the normal NEBytes meetings so that we can share challenges we've faced or successes we've had, with the aim that we all get better through sharing our experiences. If that's of interest to you, drop me an email to jonathan at nebytes.net or @jonoble
