We are pleased to announce that the Scripting Guy, Scripting Wife and Jason Helmick will be joining us for our session in March.

But the intrepid scripter overlooks them to their detriment. In this session Ed Wilson, the Microsoft Scripting Guy, talks about five new features in Windows PowerShell 5.0 that he uses on a daily basis to make his life and his scripts easier.
