Time is fast approaching for the February meetup. I asked you all to put the date of the 28th of February in your diaries (you did do that, didn’t you?) so here are all the details.
Following on from the fantastic meetup last month, we have another cracker:
- 7.00pm - Introduction and News
- 7.15pm - RTFM - Runtime Type Fiddling for the Masses by Mathias Jessen (@iisresetme)
“One of PowerShell’s core strength comes from the Extended Type System, which allows users to seamlessly interact with different data types like .NET, WMI, COM, XML etc. But what about the underlying type system, that of .NET? Let’s take an adventure into the Common Type System and see what we can do to overcome some of the limitations imposed by ETS and PowerShell”
- 8.15pm - Break
- 8.20pm - Automating Windows Servicing using Microsoft solutions & Community tools by Simon Binder (@bindertech)
“Have you looked at the servicing model of Windows 10 and thought: “Are Microsoft mad, my organization will never cope with this?!” If so, this session is for you! (and no, they are not!) Using Intune & ConfigMgr I’ll walk your through how to create an automated solution for WaaS. To spice it up, OMS, Azure Automation and community tools are added to the mix. With this, you’ll have tools, knowledge & inspiration to start building a solution that suits your needs and environment.”
- 9.30pm - Thank You’s
Simon recently spoke at the Glasgow Azure User Group and those of you who saw him will know what a fantastic speaker he is. Mathias is somebody I’ve followed on Twitter for some time and was always curious if he’d speak for us so I’m really pleased that both Simon and Mathias are with us on Wednesday.

Switching to Eventbrite For Organising Meetings
As a reminder (and I will keep reminding you until April), we are switching away from Meetup to Eventbrite for organising meetings. So I need you to subscribe to group update emails. This allows us to keep you up to date on news with the group including meetings. If you don’t do this we won’t be able to let you know when meetings are taking place.
We will be streaming every meetup live on our YouTube channel.
… and finally …
The group is always in need of speakers so if you have a topic you’d like to talk about, whether that be a problem you have come across that you solved with PowerShell or a DevOps project you are working on that you’d like to share, please contact us.
See you on Wednesday!
