Singapore PowerShell User Group Meet #3–Recapping the Basics

If you would like to sponsor the Singapore PowerShell User Group, please drop me an email at

Today was the 3rd successive meet for the Singapore PowerShell User Group, a week later than it should have been but a meet we managed nonetheless.  With a number of familiar faces and a number of new ones it was great to have more than 25 people in attendance.  Particularly since we had to limit the numbers this month due to a clash with GeekCamp.  It was also good to have a Microsoft Exchange MCM, a Microsoft IT Pro Technology Evangelist and an MVP from the Windows IT Pro group in the room, it’s great to have that kind of interest in what you’re doing.

This session was taken as an opportunity to reaffirm the basics of PowerShell covered in the first two meets, despite running over the scheduled time we were also able to add a little about PowerShell v3 and Windows 8.  It was also good to speak to the new guys after and hear the great feedback.  Credit to Thiyagu (@Thiyagu – for delivering the content.

The slide deck can be found here and through the link on my Blogroll to the SG PowerShell Group Downloads.
