NYC PowerShell User Group 12/9/2013 - Aleksandar Nikolic - Behind Server Manager

Get Behind the Dashboard of Server Manager
 
You’ve probably heard that Server Manager in Windows Server 2012/ 2012 R2 is built on top of Windows PowerShell. But do you know what actually happens when you start Server Manager, and perform some deployment steps? Join us to learn about commands that run under the covers, how to automate some aspects of Server Manager, and how to extend its functionality with your own PowerShell scripts.
 
Aleksandar Nikolic
 
We are really lucky to once again have our favorite non-NYC member of the group with us in December.  Aleksandar is an MVP recipient for Windows PowerShell and the leading independent expert in PowerShell remoting. He's also joining us from Serbia while in transit from the MVP summit this year.
 
Gaby Kaplan
 
We are also going to have Gaby Kaplan from Microsoft in attendance.  Gaby is the owner of the core PowerShell module documentation. 
 
Since 2004, Gaby Kaplan has been a technical writer for IT professionals who manage Windows Server; she writes for a goodie bag of core management technologies that includes Windows PowerShell and Server Manager, among others. She has been a technical writer since 1997, on projects as diverse as aircraft flight manuals, instructions for disassembling and reassembling telephony equipment, and software that manages cellular networks. The Journalism major who declared, “Computers are vulgar; I want nothing to do with them” in college has a lot to answer for at her class reunions.

NYC PowerShell User Group 10/14 - Steven Murawski - DevOps at Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange

Hot meeting in October!  Steve Murawski is in town, and he will be giving us some amazing insight into how his company, Stack Exchange, is automating their massive plant of Linux and Windows servers.
Topic: DevOps At Stack Overflow / Stack Exchange
Speaker: Steven Murawski, MVP Recipient, PowerShell, Stack Overflow

Your guide in this session is Steven Murawski, sysadmin for Stack Exchange, hosts of the Q&A site most developers are familiar with Stack Overflow. Steven will share his experience working with developers inside Stack Exchange and contrast that with an other traditional environments. We'll take a peek at some of the tooling used to make Stack Overflow a high performing site. And we'll see an environment where: - developers can push new code to production with a minimum of fuss. - the environment is instrumented and a view is available for developers and sysadmins. - servers can be pulled out of rotation at a moments notice for patching and other maintenance. - new physical web servers can be in production in under 3 hours (if hardware was available and racked). If this sounds different from other environments you've worked in, or you are thinking, "How can I get me some of that?", join Steven for a whirlwind tour through a real-world DevOps environment.

What's New in PowerShell: October 10th in Rochester

We are kicking off the fall a little late this year, but October 10th we're going to start off with a "What's new in PowerShell?" session.
PowerShell 4 is shipping just barely a year after PowerShell 3, thanks to the release of Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 (it will be available for Windows 7/Server 2008 as well) and brings with it Desired State Configuration, which might just change the face of Windows system administration.

NYC PowerShell User Group - 9/9/2013 - Desired State Configuration and WMI Eventing

Our favorite time of year.  Time to kick off a new season of PowerShell chit chat in NYC!

Topic: Desired State Configuration (DSC)

PowerShell 4.0 is in public preview, and Desired State Configuration is the game-changing feature that has come out of it.  DSC is built on top of PowerShell and Remoting, and it provides a way to configure servers using configuration files natively in a similar fashion to how you can with Puppet and Chef.  Join Tome has he discusses what DSC is, how it is used, and how to create custom configurations using PowerShell scripts.  Whether you are a developer looking for new ways to deploy your code to Windows or an IT Pro who is responsible for managing the configurations of Windows servers, you will want to learn about how this new feature works.

Speaker: Tome Tanasovski

Tome is an engineer for a market-leading global financial services firm in New York City. He is the founder and leader of the New York City PowerShell User group, a blogger, and a regular contributor to Microsoft’s Windows PowerShell forum.
