On Wednesday, 17 Sep 14, the PBIT Pros supported the Southeastern College Information Technology Advisory Board's annual meeting.  A few spontaneous comments from attendees:

Just wanted to thank everyone in attendance at last nights advisory board meeting for all their input and suggestions as an ITNA student I found their knowledge to be very informative and helpful once again thanks  (Cedrick Adams, Student)
I just wanted to thank all who attended the Advisory Board for Southeastern College last night. As Cedrick stated, your input and experiences in the IT field provides invaluable real world knowledge to the students. My students have been buzzing about it all day!!
Thank you,

Glad I could be there.
Its is always a pleasure to share experiences and knowledge in this kind of meeting. However, I have to point out that the vast majority of the information came from John which was really interesting and informative.

Thanks Robert and students at Southeast College for another great and productive meeting.

Palm Beach IT Users Group, 09 Sep 14

Comments from the PBIT group organizer:
I want to thank Alex Raskin from Adtran for his informative and also entertaining presentation. There were parts of his wifi presentation that I was not aware that I should be doing, and his talk regarding their new line of routers and switches kept people asking questions.

Thank you Alex for dinner from Paneras, and let's not forgot Jennifer from Windstream for hosting our meetings.

Thanks to all that showed up, and I promise that the link for the webcast will go up sooner than what it did last night for the members who would like to view this online.

John Vighetto
Thanks Alex  for an excellent presentation, I was unaware of Adtran latest technology and products until last night.

Thanks John for the dedication to the group and Jennifer for the support!

Ratzil Rodriguez

Deerfield Beach Coders' Cafe 02 September 2014

Here is the bulletin for this event:
Bring your Windows 7/8/8.1 laptop to the next Coders Café and David Cobb will walk us through getting started with PowerShell.

We will get hands on with PowerShell and cover:

  • The basics of PowerShell syntax
  • The three commands that unlock all of PowerShell!
  • Amazingly useful cmdlets and scripts
  • Leveraging the.Net Framework
  • Where to go from here
This will be an interactive session, we should all walk away with some practical powershell skills. Demo scripts will be available online on OneDrive and a free USB key!

Technical Note: Windows 7 has PowerShell version 2 by default, but you can upgrade to PowerShell version 3 with the Windows Management Framework 3.0. This is recommended, but not required to learn and participate in the session, though some features and scripts may not be compatible with version 2.


David Cobb is a System Engineer for CheckAlt Payment Solutions, providers of automated and electronic check transaction processing since 2005. He is a Microsoft Certified Trainer, training people on SQL Server since 2002. David is also the principal consultant for Cobb Information Technologies, Inc, founded in 1996, providing technology consulting with a focus on SQL Server.
Coders Cafe - Deerfield Beach - 09-02-2014 - Hands on PowerShell - David Cobb

BRING YOUR LAPTOPS!! We are planning on having an interactive session where you will be able dive into powershell and try it for yourself!

If you are running windows 8 you already have Powershell 3. If you are on Window 7 and want to upgrade to Powershell 3 you will need to download the Windows Management Framework 3.0: This video goes through the upgrade process.

This was a greaat event experience.  Dave (Cobb) took us through loading Powershell and then running it in ISA / Administrator mode.  The basic functions and procedures followed.  Really a great way to get off the ground or smooth off some of the rough spots.
