Enums are not the commonly used data type in PowerShell but I was recently reminded of how simple and useful they really are. And they got some love in PowerShell 5!
I came across an issue with Invoke-WebRequest trying to access a site using TLS 1.2 and discovered the problem was with PowerShell defaults.
Hacktoberfest is back! The month long celebration of open source gives you a chance to brush up on your git, help open source projects and get yourself some stickers or a t-shirt!
I’ve been resisting buying a Stream Deck for a while now but finally succumbed to temptation and it arrived today. Setting it up is fairly easy but associating an program with a button does not extract the icon from the executable. So I looked for a way to extract the icon myself. And of course I looked to use PowerShell.
Due to me being ill during part of September it’s been quiet on the announcement front so lets get start with the changes.
In my previous post I asked you all to complete the user group member survey and get a chance to win a copy of The Pester Book by Don Jones and Adam Bertram. If you’ve not completed that survey you only have until our meetup on Wednesday to do so! So be quick. The survey is short and should take you no more than 5 minutes to complete and lets me know your views.
The August monthly meeting due on Tuesday 22nd August has been rescheduled for 30th August. I apologise for the short notice and also because I am not in the habit of rescheduling our meetings. Hopefully I will see you all on the 30th!
We’ve had three meetings now so I wanted to get everybody’s view on the group while you’re all fresh from your tropical summer holidays. I’ve put together a short survey to get your views on how the group is doing, what is being done well, what could be done better, future meetups and where you are with PowerShell. And to say thank you will get the chance to win a copy of The Pester Book by Don Jones and Adam Bertram.
Coming up soon is the fourth Scottish PowerShell & DevOps User Group meeting scheduled for the 22nd August 2017.
