I just got back from the second meeting of ALT.NET Charlotte, where I presented a talk on PowerShell as a Tools Platform.  I think it went well.  The demos centered around building tools in PowerShell to manage the ASP.NET Membership store for a website, and they seemed to drive the point home.  Try doing this:

dir users: | where { $_.lastLoginDate –lt ( ( get-date ).addyear( -1 ) ) } | remove-item;

in the ASP.NET Website Management tool!

As well as I feel it went, I'm still hoping to get some feedback from the group.  Feel free to leave a comment here if you wish, or use the contact link at the top of this page.

And a very special thank you to those organizations and companies that provided their support for this presentation:

and those who sposor our kick-ass group:

 Thanks to everyone who came out to support the group and hear my talk!
