Topic: Open Source PowerShell 101

Almost 3 years ago, Microsoft announced that they were open sourcing PowerShell Core, a cross platform version of PowerShell. One month ago Microsoft announced that the next version of PowerShell will supersede both the current version of Windows PowerShell and the current version of PowerShell Core, bringing us back to just PowerShell. With all current and future investments going into open source PowerShell, it’s a great opportunity to get connected with others through the open source PowerShell repository and help drive the direction of PowerShell going forward. But how do you do that? When or how can you contribute? What is the process for contributing to PowerShell? Does contributing mean writing code? What if you’re not a developer, what then? Regardless of whether you use PowerShell ad-hoc in a terminal, write scripts/functions/modules with PowerShell in an editor, or know how to program in C# and maybe write binary modules for PowerShell, there are plenty of ways you can contribute, and many of them don’t involve writing code at all. In this session, Kirk “Poshoholic” Munro will share some insight into how the process works, identify many ways you can contribute to open source PowerShell, and provide you with the information you need to know to get started today.
