Last week I gave two presentations at the European edition of the PowerShell Summit held in beautiful Stockholm, Sweden. If you weren’t able to attend, you can still enjoy the sessions because everything was recorded. Session recordings for the entire conference can be found on PowerShell.org’s YouTube channel.
I thought I would post something here about my sessions including my demos and slides. One of my talks was on customizing the PowerShell ISE. I spend a lot of time in the ISE and have developed a lot of tricks and shortcuts to save myself time and frustration. My presentation explained how to create your own shortcuts and demonstrated a lot of my tips and tricks.
You can download a zip file of my material here.
My other presentation was about techniques and tips around logging in PowerShell. We often want to include a logging mechanism into our scripts and modules and there are a number of techniques you can use. Additionally, there may be a need for logging an entire PowerShell session. I talked about ways to accomplish that including a peak at some new PowerShell v5 features.
Demo files and slides can be downloaded here.
Hopefully the videos and material will be of some use to you, although I have to tell you that the real benefit of attending the Summit is the interaction with other attendees and speakers. It is the exchange of information between sessions that is extremely valuable and impossible to capture unless you attend.
Seats for the next North American event in Bellevue, WA will be limited so keep an eye on the calendar and act fast when tickets go on sale.
