Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, discusses TechNet 2012 Booth Night from Orlando Florida.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Well, “Booth Night” is officially over. We had an awesome time at the Scripting Guys booth last night at Microsoft TechEd 2012 in Orlando, Florida. We began our evening with a guest. Microsoft Windows PowerShell MVP, Don Jones, stopped by after his awesome session on Windows PowerShell remoting, and he fielded questions from a variety of people who came by the booth. Here is Don talking about Windows PowerShell with a few scripters.
Following Don Jones, the two 2012 Scripting Games winners showed up to receive their Dr. Scripto bobble head dolls and some IT Pro posters, and to be interviewed by Microsoft IT Pro evangelist, Blaine Barton, for TechNet Radio IT Time. This interview will be live later, but I can tell you, it was a lot of fun. Blaine is a great guy, and he is the brains behind the Jacksonville IT Pro Camp coming up this Saturday. Anyway, here are Lido and Rohn loaded down with goodies following their interview with Blaine.
Following the interview, we had various people stopping by to see how they might draw Dr. Scripto. Jason decided he could not resist the attempt at fame, and so he jumped-in on the competition. I thought he did an excellent job.
I shared space with my teammates from SCDiX. Here are Cordell, Tony, and Kim hanging out after we closed down the exhibit hall.
All in all, it was a great time, and there were lots of questions about Windows PowerShell, which gave rise to many impromptu demo’s on our workstation. I got at least a couple of great questions I will use for upcoming Hey, Scripting Guy! Blogs.
Enjoy today’s “regular” Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog, in addition to more impromptu blog posts during the day.
I invite you to follow me on Twitter or Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
