NYC PowerShell UG Meeting - 4/14/2014 - Tome Tanasovski - PowerShell Summit Sessions

This event will be hosted at the new office of Microsoft in Times Square!

We have quite the lineup in store.  Our founder and leader Tome Tanasovski will be presenting all three of the sessions that he will be presenting at the PowerShell Summit later this month.


Parallel Execution with PowerShell

For the hardcore scripter working in large enterprises or on time-sensitive scripts, it is important to understand what options are available to you in order to take advantage of all of the processing power on a machine. We'll explore what is built in to PowerShell, what is native to the .NET language, and a few other techniques that can help you turn your 8-hour script into a 30-minute script


Intro to GIT and GitHub

Git and Github are not Windows PowerShell, but they are essential to distributed development in today's day and age. Learn why there are so many github projects, how you can start your own project, and how you can contribute to existing projects. Whether you are an IT Pro or a developer, you should be using source control even if you are working alone. However, if you are working with a team of people who you want to enable as direct editors to your code, it is essential. Find out how easy it is to allow others to clone, modify, and either push changes or request that their changes get added to your code base using the git binaries and Windows PowerShell.


OData Extensions

The Odata extensions to IIS are one of the most overlooked features that are available in the Windows Server operating system. These extensions allow you a way to turn scripts and cmdlets into web services using only a few definition files. This feature enables Windows scripters to be able to expose their services into the dark holes where Linux, Unix, Perl, Python, Javascript, and Java live. This live demo will illustrate just how easy it is to enable, configure, and use this feature with focus on pitfalls you may encounter in the enterprise.


Tome is an executive for a market-leading global financial services firm in New York City where he focuses on automation, private cloud, and distributed computing. He is the founder and leader of the New York City PowerShell User group, a blogger, and speaks regularly at conferences and user groups. In 2011 he became a cofounder of the NYC Techstravaganza, coauthored the Windows PowerShell Bible, and received the title of Honorary Scripting Guy from the Hey Scripting Guy! blog. Tome has also received the MVP award from Microsoft for the last four years in Windows PowerShell.
