Scottish PowerShell & Devops User Group

A group for anyone interested in PowerShell and Devops (sometimes called WinOps). We focus on any technology with a use for PowerShell including full .NET PowerShell, PowerShell Core (on Linux or Mac OSX), DSC, SQL, Azure and anything else you can think of. If it works with PowerShell it works for us.

Whatever level you are at with PowerShell or related technologies you are very welcome. The group has members with all skills levels so you will find something here for you.

To keep up to date on more information on the group you will receive notifications from the Meetup page. But you can also find more information at, @ScotPSUG Twitter feed ( and Facebook (

Code of Conduct:
Common sense is applied. Be respectful. Be helpful. And understand that the group has members of all skill levels and there is no such thing as a 'stupid question'.
