NIC 2017 Slides and Demos

Nic2017-logoEarlier this month I had the pleasure of presenting at the Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC). This is still a relatively young conference as these things go, but you couldn’t tell based on my experiences.  Given the demise of TechEd Europe, conferences like this are filling the void, and doing a fantastic job.

The conference draws top speakers who really pack them in.

I gave 2 PowerShell related sessions which from my perspective were well attended.

My presentations were on PowerShell Web Access and how to do more with remoting.  The latter was titled “Secrets of PowerShell Remoting”, but really only secret in the sense that you may not have seen or heard of a few techniques or concepts.

If you’ve attended any of my conference sessions in the past you know I tend to minimize slides and maximize demo time. So even though I’m including a PDF of my slide material it probably won’t have much meaning.

You can download a zip file with my session material.

The sessions were recorded and at some point should be available on the conference’s YouTube channel.

IT/Dev Connections 2016 Demos

I had a great time in Las Vegas a few weeks ago presenting at IT/Dev Connections. If you attended one of my sessions, thanks for taking the time. I hope found it time well spent. I tend to offer more demo-intensive presentations with minimal PowerPoint, which no one has complained about yet!

In some of my sessions I included a link to a zip file with the relevant demos and sample code but in case you missed it, or I didn’t provide a link during the event, here is a one-stop shop for all of my material. Continue reading “IT/Dev Connections 2016 Demos”

So I’m starting to get ready for Ignite next week. This year my attendance is down to a single day so I wanted to make sure I got the most out of it. I used the Scheduled Builder to pick some sessions to see on Tuesday.  Once that was done I thought I’d export the events to my calendar. However, I don’t use Microsoft Outlook or a Windows Phone. I couldn’t get the link to save an .ICS file or otherwise export my schedule. Then I remembered I know how to use PowerShell.

Road Trips

It’s coming up on that time of year again when I hit the road for series of tech conferences. I try to speak at several so that you have options, assuming you have any interest in what I might be presenting. I realize there is some competition between conferences but personally I think it often boils down to location and dates. I think every conference I am speaking at has something special to offer. Whether it is right for you depends on when the conference runs and the overall agenda. So here’s a quick look at where I’ll be through the rest of the year. Continue reading “Road Trips”
