Event topic: Scripting Language Rundown

Lunch provided! Thank you to our sponsor Greenstone Farm Credit Services!!


There are many scripting languages out there – Powershell, JS, Powerscript, Ancible, Javascript, Power Platform, and more. So how do you know what’s right for your organization? At our February 3 event, we’ll hear from two speakers on different languages they’re putting to use for their organizations, along with a run down on the pros and cons of each from both a business and a technical perspective.

"I love the peer groups that CAITC has established. I love that I can connect, network, and learn from local IT professionals in my field. I also appreciate connecting with peer groups that I don’t always identify with and learn about opportunities to support and advocate for others. Thank you CAITC for building this community, both in person and virtually!"

"As a founding member of the Capital Area IT Council, our small IT firm has benefitted immensely from our continued participation in the CAITC. I have personally benefitted from CAITC-sponsored training programs, such as the IT Project Management course that I attended, which in turn has helped me to better manage clients/projects and generate new business for my company, while also creating new opportunities to grow professionally."
