Chalk Talks on Active Directory and Windows® PowerShell

Chalk Talk is a direct collaboration event with Microsoft experts. The A-Team has taken up the difficult task to address partner queries, solution discussions and gotchas through Chalk Talks. These events will be presented via Microsoft Live Meeting.  So, be prepared with audio to ask your questions. This is a fully interactive event and your full participation is encouraged.

There are four Chalk Talks lined up in the month of August, two on Active Directory and two on Windows® PowerShell:

1. Chalk Talk for Active Directory Services

Bring your questions to this fully interactive session to gain understanding on the differences among the Active Directory services, including the identity-related products: Active Directory Domain Services, Federation Services, and Lightweight Directory Services. This chalk talk provides you the opportunity to discuss Active Directory as a whole: features, history, future thinking, adoption of the cloud, and the hybrid-enterprise. Present your own scenarios to the consultant and receive tailored, interactive advice on how to proceed with your customers.

Audience – IT Administrators/ Solution Architects

Dates: 9th of August, 2012 and 30th of August, 2012

Time: 10 AM to 11:30 AM PST

2. Chalk Talk for Windows® PowerShell

Bring your questions to this fully interactive session to gain understanding on Windows PowerShell® as the de facto standard for scripting and automating the Microsoft® product stack. Use this chalk talk to ask questions and learn why Windows PowerShell should be leveraged over VBScript. Get details on how Windows PowerShell can be used in any infrastructure engagement and highlight best practices for writing your own highly reusable Windows PowerShell scripts. Present your own scenarios to the consultant and receive tailored, interactive advice on how to proceed with your customers.

Audience – IT Administrators/ Solution Architects

Dates: 8th of August, 2012 and 28th of August, 2012
