Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming common place in today’s world of technology, and a ChatBot is an AI software that can simulate a conversation with a user via messaging applications, mobile apps, websites and even the telephone.  Come acquire the steps necessary to build a ChatBot on both Amazon Lex and SnatchBot.  During this session, Darren Goroski, will build and deploy a fully functioning ChatBot which is accessible over SMS using Twilio.  In addition, you will learn how the City of Goldsboro uses its ChatBot to provide a higher quality level of service to their customers.

PowerShell – Jeremy Brown
Have you ever thought "There has to be a better way?"  Do you wish you could read a little more Reddit while at work?  Come take a look at what PowerShell has to offer.  We are going to talk about the basics of PowerShell and learn how to apply it to our daily jobs.  This presentation will carry us through the way to use the pipeline, introduce us to object oriented programming, and apply these concepts to real world problems that any IT administrator would experience regularly.  Come hang and take part in this interactive PowerShell demonstration.  Get back that time and invest it where it belongs...Reddit!!

Jeremy has been in IT for 20 years.  He started by teaching PowerShell v1 as a Microsoft Trainer.  Once he began, he fell in love. Jeremy has used PowerShell as his primary tool in Systems Administration since that time.  He currently works with automating Azure and Office 365 in a hybrid environment for the NC Judicial Branch.

**After the meeting all attendees are welcome to stay and play a round of golf at a discounted rate of $18.
