Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Honorary Scripting Guy and PowerShell MVP, Don Jones, makes his Windows PowerShell community predictions for 2014.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I invited Don Jones, Windows PowerShell MVP and Honorary Scripting Guy, to write some predictions for 2014. And now, here’s Don…
2014 is shaping up to be a big year for the Windows PowerShell community. Let’s start with what’s on tap for PowerShell.org:
But PowerShell.org certainly isn’t the beginning or the end of the awesomeness that is the Windows PowerShell community, and I hope you’ll take some time to see what else is going on. Make 2014 your year to learn a tip from the PowerShell Magazine, share code in the PoshCode repository, or answer a question in The Official Scripting Guys Forum.
Now, how about some predictions for Windows PowerShell in 2014? It’s my hope that we’ll see more local PowerShell Saturday events. Folks like Jim Christopher, Teresa Wilson, and Mark Schill are doing a great job running a low-cost, information-packed experience for folks in their region, and I hope we can help other folks do the same thing. Mark has volunteered to offer tips and advice to any would-be PowerShell Saturday hosts. (A little birdie also told me that Teresa got the ball rolling with Brandon Bollin for PowerShell Saturday in Toledo.)
I hope we’ll see more international Windows PowerShell events, too, like the excellent event Tobias Weltner and company put together in Germany. They’re doing it again in 2014, and PowerShell.org stands ready to help anyone who’d like to hold one in their country.
Regardless, I hope you will be a part of the community in 2014. Even if you’re just lurking in the forums on PowerShell.org, take the time in 2014 to make Windows PowerShell more than just a tool. Make it part of your career. Connect with your peers and colleagues in the Windows PowerShell industry, and together let’s automate the world!
Thanks, Don, for all the wonderful information regarding the Windows PowerShell Community and your predictions for 2014.
I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
