Charlotte PowerShell Users Group

The Charlotte PowerShell Users Group offers learning and support opportunities for IT administrators and developers working with PowerShell. While some meetings include guest speakers, most meetings are designated as "Script Club" sessions, where group members can bring in their own PowerShell scripts and receive advice and assistance from fellow group members. In addition, the group actively participates in the annual Scripting Games and holds it own mini-competitions to foster PowerShell knowledge in the Charlotte area.

Meeting Time: 
First Thursday of the month starting Jan 2012

* set-content
* get-itemproperty
and their ilk.

Scripting Game Event #3 August 2, 2012

The next scripting game is sure to be a great time. The goal of this scripting game is to learn how to create scripts and functions.

You will create a script that can play Rock, Paper, Scissors against other scripts. In a nutshell, your script will receive information about the state of the game, and it will return a single string (either rock, paper, or scissors) to indicate which move to make next.
