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!

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.

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.
