Carl Webster is a Citrix Technology Professional who provides FREE PowerShell documentation scripts for many Citrix and Microsoft products.  He's currently up to eight different scripts that document your environments in excruciating detail, and have been downloaded over 120,000 times.

Two new free scripts will be released on May 31st at the Experts 2 Experts conference in Brussels, Belgium, and we'll be hearing from Carl the following week!
 
Aren't you curious to find out how a non-programmer and non-developer has written and given away over 80,000 lines of PowerShell code? Join us!

This is the "Hangout On Air" -- sorry for the confusion, I got flustered and accidentally scheduled it without the "On Air" option (Google won't let me add that later, so I had to create a new event).

This month's presentation will be about creating and packaging PowerShell modules!

PowerShell MVP Joel Bennett (yes, that's me) will present about authoring PowerShell modules, including tips, tricks and best practices for writing modules and functions that work well together (and behave properly in the pipeline).

We will also take a look at the new PoshCode module packaging module: a powerful new way to distribute, install, and rely on dependencies between PowerShell modules.

I'm on KK nightlies (Verizon + Galaxy S3) and I just realized there's no WhisperPush -- is that intentional? Will it stay out?

I actually was trying to install and register TextSecure, but I couldn't because my number's already registered with WhisperPush (silly private servers).

Don't forget: NEXT THURSDAY!
 
Jeff Wouters, PowerShell MVP from the Netherlands, will be sharing his (until now) secret PowerShell project: an Active Directory Health Check script. In his own words:

At each new customer there is a single thing I check before starting on a project: Active Directory health. You wouldn't believe the problems that you could encounter when AD isn't feeling that well, and what a headache it can cause when troubleshooting the issue(s).

Over the last few months I've been working on a private PowerShell project: a health check for Active Directory environments.

I'll show you the bumps in the road taken, the impact that scripting techniques can have on performance, the difference between choices (i.e. cmdlets vs. LDAP queries), and a first glimpse of the next step...

P.S.: Sorry about the confusion earlier today, I moved the "event" to a different (shared) calendar on my Google account, and Google Events cancelled it.

Nice location by the river, large but a little crowded, for a KOA. They make up for it with all sorts of amenities like a pool, mini golf, etc., all free, and with the proximity to the creek.

The food was great: spicy and flavorful, the flan was perfect, the flautas crispy, and the enchiladas cheesy and delicious. I'd definitely go again if I'm in Denver.
