The NYC Techstravaganza date has been announced: March 25, 2016. Techstravaganza is an all-day conference on a Friday in March that takes place at the Microsoft office in Times Square. The NYC PowerShell User Group curates tAe PowerShell track for this conference. If you would like to submit an abstract for consideration, please do so by e-mailing powershellnyc at gmail.com.
While Techstravaganza is typically an IT pro conference, our PowerShell track does not always conform to that. We seek level 300/400 content that is deep and interesting. All topics and levels will be considered. Please feel free to submit as many abstracts as you wish for consideration. The more you submit, the better your chance that the group will decide on one of your topics.
What to submit:
Title: A catchy title for your talk
Abstract: A paragraph describing your talk that will be used on our website and track materials
Speaker Bio: A brief bio explaining who you are and any relevant twitter handles or blog links that you would like linked to from our website.
Again, please e-mail powershellnyc at gmail
For those travelling from outside of NYC, Techstravaganza typically reimburses travel expenses. We guarantee up to 500 dollars, but in the past we have been able to recuperate all expenses for our speakers. The exact amount is dependant upon the origin of all speakers coming to the event. Also, please note, these are reimbursements for airfare/hotel/taxi. We do not cover additional expenses or provide an honorarium or stipend of any kind.
If youare a sponsor interested in sponsoring the Techstravaganza, please also e-mail powershellnyc at gmail.com so that we may send you the list of sponsorship opportunities.

I just wanted to publicly thank Doug Finke and Sunny Chakraborty. Doug bought me a nice lunch and injected me with excitement. Both of them are working with me to figure out how to maintain steam on invites, blog posts, and communications for the group. We all owe them a great deal (buy them a drink!)
Additionally, I have committed to a year of free training for anyone who joins us. Basically, I have a training course that I do and I will be providing a module from the training to start off every meeting. Whether you are new to PowerShell and could use the help or a veteran looking to polish their knowledge and skills with a refresher, there should be something for everyone for the first 30-45 minutes of every meeting.
