Microsoft Excel - 8:00 am
In March, the Excel SIG will take a look at some of the Data Analysis tools available in Excel. There is a book on Data Analysis that has been around for years and gets updated for each version of Excel released. It is a classic that still works because it is based on math and logic. Imagine using those two items within a spreadsheet. I will cover some examples from the book where I'll be telling more than I know.
- 8:00 - 10:00 am
The PowerShell "Pester" testing framework is the PowerShell SIG topic for March 21 with Josh Miller as the presenter.
