February 7th – Richard Siddaway presents PowerShell – Admin tools for free   1 comment

UPDATE: Richard is unable to attend! We will be welcoming Steven Murawski of the Milwaukee Script Club! We hope to have Richard join us sometime later this year.  

Coming in February: We will be welcoming Richard Siddaway! 


The session will cover the administrative tasks that can be performed using just the tools that install with PowerShell v2. This will cover the cmdlets, some simple scripts and a quick look at WMI. At the end of the session you will have a grasp of the breadth of tasks PowerShell can accomplish, some sample scripts to start building your own library and a view on where to go next.

Presenter: Richard Siddaway
I have been working with Microsoft technologies for over 22 years having spent time in most IT roles including analyst-programmer, server administration, support, DBA and architect.  I have been interested in automation techniques (including automating job creation and submission on mainframes many years ago!).  I have been using VBScript and WMI since it became available on NT 4.  PowerShell caught my interest when I first heard about it and I have been using it since the early beta versions.  My blog is mainly about PowerShell.  I founded and run the UK PowerShell user Group and I am a PowerShell MVP.  I have given numerous talks on PowerShell at various events in the UK, Europe and the USA. I am a frequent speaker for PowerShell user groups worldwide. I have had a number of articles on PowerShell published including expert commentary’s on the Microsoft Scripting Games for which I have been a judge for the last two years.. PowerShell in Practice (Manning) was published in June 2010 and I am currently finishing PowerShell and WMI (Manning) to be published in 2012. A further title PowerShell in Depth will be published towards the end of 2012.
