Cincinnati PowerShell User Group – December Recap

Recap - Scripting Puzzle and TDD

Thanks to all who attended, we had a lot of fun with our Scripting puzzle! Ideas were flying as we croud sourced a password generator. We started with a set of criteria in the form of a Pester test with some constraints and went to town. It turns out, there there are some challenges with creating passwords (entropy, cryptographic security, character selection, memory management) that we tried to work through. The code that we were working with is available here. Watch for the solutions we came up with to be published as well. Feel free to fork it and submit pull requests, and lets crowd source a great password generator to solve a real problem we face every day.


We are always looking for new content and/or speakers! If you know someone or you are someone that would like to speak, we’d love to hear from you. Reach out to us on our About Us page and we’ll be in touch. Even if you just have something quick to show, a 10 minute demo can be a great thing to share, or get feedback on if you are working on a cool project or need some help.
