Learn about Windows PowerShell
Summary: The Scripting Wife creates her ideal Windows PowerShell TechEd 2014 schedule.
Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today we have a guest blogger, Windows PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson, aka the Scripting Wife. Take it away, Teresa…
Hello my Windows PowerShell friends. I am so excited! We just returned from the Windows PowerShell Summit, and next week, we get to go to TechEd NA. I will be at the Scripting Guys booth in the Resource Zone during the hours the Expo Hall is open.
I will probably leave only long enough to eat lunch because I hate to miss out on seeing everyone who comes by the booth. Granted, I may take the long way back from lunch because I have to go by certain booths and say "hi" to friends who are working their booths, but I won’t be gone long. I know you don’t attend TechEd just to see me, but I go to see you so I can help spread the word about Windows PowerShell.
As usual, I went into the schedule builder and made my -whatif schedule. These are the session I would attend if I were not staffing the booth. Hope you find something here that you will learn from and take away some knowledge to make your work day flow more smoothly.
