UK PowerShell User Group Anyone?

I got talking at IT forum to Richard Siddaway, a consultant with Perot Systems. We discussed his great idea of a UK PowerShell Users Group. We also chatted to the folks at Culminis who were highly supportive and to a few folks at Microsoft UK. It sure seems a great idea to start up a user group around PowerShell - focused on both developers and admins.

As a teaser, Jeffrey Snover, Powershell's architect (and a very smart man!!!), has agreed to come to and speak to us, if we can get the group going. And I am hopeful we can both get Microsoft interested (Eileen - are you reading this blog??) and can hold some events at Global Knowledge's offices in Wokingham.

Do YOU want a UK Powershell user group?? If so, either drop me a line or post a comment here. Once we get to 10 people saying "YES", we can kick things off.

you can contact me for now at the following

powershell-uk at hotmail dot co dot uk

The address is temporary until I can get everything sorted. This all happened in a bit of a rush at TechEd last week so this is very definitely early days. If you are interested please drop me a line - need total of 10 interested folks and then we can prove that powershell does rock!

Great idea - I'll see if I can make the long, arduous, tortuous, dangerous (somebody hand me a thesaurus!) trek from Reading ;). I think the number 17 goes straight to Wokingham, or there's the train.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I'm struggling to find the time to get up to speed with PowerShell - getting involved with a User Group will spur me on.
