February 7th - Richard Siddaway presents PowerShell – Admin tools for free
Coming in February: We will be welcoming Richard Siddaway! Presentation:
The session will cover the administrative tasks that can be performed using just the tools that install with PowerShell v2. This will cover the cmdlets, some simple scripts and a quick look at WMI. At the end of the session you will have a grasp of the breadth of tasks PowerShell can accomplish, some sample scripts to start building your own library and a view on where to go next.
Presenter: Richard Siddaway
I have been working with Microsoft technologies for over 22 years having spent time in most IT roles including analyst-programmer, server administration, support, DBA and architect. I have been interested in automation techniques (including automating job creation and submission on mainframes many years ago!). I have been using VBScript and WMI since it became available on NT 4. PowerShell caught my interest when I first heard about it and I have been using it since the early beta versions. My blog is mainly about PowerShell. I founded and run the UK PowerShell user Group and I am a PowerShell MVP. I have given numerous talks on PowerShell at various events in the UK, Europe and the USA. I am a frequent speaker for PowerShell user groups worldwide. I have had a number of articles on PowerShell published including expert commentary’s on the Microsoft Scripting Games for which I have been a judge for the last two years.. PowerShell in Practice (Manning) was published in June 2010 and I am currently finishing PowerShell and WMI (Manning) to be published in 2012. A further title PowerShell in Depth will be published towards the end of 2012.
