Sign up for AZPOSH #PshGames Team + NO meeting next Wednesday

Hello everyone,

If you haven’t heard yet, the 2014 Winter Scripting Games are right around the corner!  The practice event starts January 6th (that’s just two short weeks away) and the first event starts January 19th.  As you may also know, The Scripting Games are team based this time with 2-6 participants per team.  The idea is to get people thinking more like colleagues and less like individuals… i.e. collaborate with your peers instead of just scrambling around on Bing/Google.  There is more information here: http://powershell.org/wp/category/announcements/scripting-games/

AZPOSH is going to have at least one, maybe two teams.  Right now, we have 9 people who have expressed interest in being on the team (I will send a note to you 9 confirming).  If you are interested (or changed your mind about being involved), please send me a note by next Monday January 30th.  You can use email, the Contact page, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, whatever you’d like as long as I get it… we’re trying to nail down how many teams we’ll have.  Team formation and registration with the Scripting Games will begin January 2nd.

On a side note, I want to remind everyone that we are not having our January meeting next Wednesday.  Instead, we’re having a meeting on Wednesday, January 15th @ 6PM with Don Jones.

Don’t forget Holiday Happy Hour this Wednesday

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to remind you that we’re having our December AZPOSH meeting in the form of a Holiday Happy Hour this year.

The Holiday Happy Hour will be this Wednesday December 18th around 4PM at Macayo’s on Central and Indian School – 4001 N Central Ave, Phoenix.  I have reserved a couple tables so when you get there, ask for ‘Lindsey’.  I hope everyone can make it for this social outing with your fellow PowerShellers!

If I don’t see you, I hope you have a wonder holiday season.  Make sure you get some rest, because we’ll be starting 2014 off with Don Jones on Wednesday January 15th at 6pm!  I’m so excited that Don can join us again, and I am really excited that we could catch him while he’ll be in Phoenix.

See you Wednesday!  Thanks, Lindsey

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July and a nice weekend.  Even though we didn’t meet this month, I wanted to send out a quick update.

First, I wanted to share with you that today we added a new page to the azposh.com blog.  There is now a “Special Thanks” page recognizing presenters and businesses that help support us including TechMentor, PowerShell.org, and Microsoft for the Office 365 subscription (which we use to run the Lync online meetings).  Check out the new page http://wp.me/P2LTau-aa

So, you are probably wondering why TechMentor would be listed on our new “Special Thanks” page…. well, I am so excited to announce that AZPOSH has partnered with TechMentor Las Vegas 2013 as a Premium Media Partner.  This means several really awesome opportunities including:
