PowerShell MVP Adam Driscoll will be speaking for the Mississippi PowerShell User Group on Tuesday, October 8th at 8:30pm Central Time.
Adam will be presenting on “Win32 Interop in PowerShell”. Here’s a brief description of Adam’s presentation:
Being built on the .NET runtime, PowerShell has access to almost everything you will need to work with the Microsoft operating system and the components that run within it. Occasionally, cmdlets nor .NET can provide the desired functionality. This is when we can turn to Win32 interop using P\Invoke. During this session we will take a step-by-step approach and tackle the complexity involved in working with native interfaces. You will learn what P\Invoke is, when it’s applicable and where to find resources to make it easier for the non-programmer.
