On the Road Again

It’s that time of year again: conferences! I’ll be out and about a few places in the next few months and I hope our paths will cross. Here’s a short summary of where I’ll be speaking and when. If you are interested in having me speak for your group or perhaps you are interested in some private training or mentoring, please feel free to contact me.

First up is the PowerShell Deep Dive which is part of The Experts Conference April 29-May 2nd in always sunny and beautiful San Diego. I will be doing a session on integrating Microsoft Office into PowerShell. This will be an extension of some of the articles I’ve done recently for the Petri IT Knowledgebase on creating Word documents and Excel spreadsheets from PowerShell. I have discovered some new techniques that I’m excited to share.

On Saturday, May 12 I’ll be presenting several sessions at the SQL Saturday event in Rochester, NY. I’ll be doing sessions on background jobs, jobs and tasks in PowerShell 3.0 and one on PowerShell 3.0 workflows. I’m looking forward to this event because it is in my own backyard and the SQL Saturday folks are a new group for me. Should be a lot of fun.

Finally, I will be at TechEd in Orlando the week of June 11th. I have a session that I’m co-presenting with Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz. We’ll be talking about Group Policy Reporting and Analysis with Windows PowerShell. The focus is on what sort of things you want to look for in Group Policy that might give you problems and how you can find this information using PowerShell. I think Jeremy and I are going to have a lot of fun with this. The rest of the time at TechEd you’ll most likely find me wandering the expo hall or hanging out with the Scripting Guys. If more formal events are scheduled for me I’ll be sure to post the information and tweet about it. You do follow me on Twitter, right?

As far as I know there is still time to register for all of these events. I hope you’ll find time to sit in on one of my talks or at least come up and say hi.
