Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: The Scripting Guys reveal their Microsoft TechEd 2012 schedule and all the Windows PowerShell goodness thereof.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Yesterday we played WhatIf with the Scripting Wife about what sessions she would choose to attend at TechEd 2012 if she was not involved in meeting and greeting people at the Scripting Guys booth. Today, I am going to share my real schedule. Hope to see you at some of these sessions and events. Please don’t be shy come on by and say, “Hi.”

The Scripting Guys booth will have two people at all times, and about half the time, there will be three people there. Besides myself and Teresa (The Scripting Wife), Daniel Cruz will be joining us to answer your questions and to interact with you. A big THANK YOU to Dan for volunteering to help out this year.
I will update this page with information about more special guests that will be showing up at the booth. So bookmark this page so you can keep track of the schedule during the week of TechEd 2012 in Orlando.
I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
Looks like an awesome time, man do I wish I could go this year. Hopefully next year won't be so busy.
@Brian Wilhite yes we wish you could go this year as well. In fact, we wish that all readers of the Hey Scripting Guy! blog could come to Orlando and hang out ... I am thinking we need to do a Hey Scripting Guy! conference with only Windows PowerShell content ... oh wait, we already did that, it was called PowerShell Saturday. Yes, indeed TechEd is an awesome learning time, and is (exhausting but worth it). There is some great content, and will be some awesome speakers there this year. We can't wait.
The Birds of a Feather session has been added as a repeat to the schedule. Thursday afternoon at 2:45 this time with MVP Jeffery Hicks as the co host.
