Join Windows PowerShell MVP Don Jones for a fun- and fact-filled session on “PowerShell Gotchas.” These are the tips and tricks that are tough to tease out on your own, but once you conquer them the shell will be friendlier and even more powerful. If you’re a PowerShell novice, this will keep you out of trouble; if you’re an accomplished expert, this will help you help others achieve the same lofty heights. Bring your questions and have them speedily answered by one of the industry’s most well-known PowerShell educators, who’s launching a limited series of public classes throughout the US (http://events.concentratedtech.com for locations or to be notified when a class is scheduled near you). Don will also be appearing at the second-ever PowerShell Summit (http://powershell.org/wp/summit), to be held in April 2014 right in Microsoft’s hometown. You’re also welcome to ask Don questions about the Summit, which still has a limited number of attendee slots available. Start 2014 off right by connecting with PowerShell community, overcoming “the gotchas,” and amping up your PowerShell sk1llz!
