Join Me in Atlanta for TechEd 2011

I’m very excited to be presenting at Microsoft TechEd North America 2011, this year in Atlanta, GA. I’ll be presenting two breakout sessions and will likely be there most of the week so there will be plenty of time to connect with people. I have what I hope are some very interesting sessions.

TechEd Berlin Paradigm Shift Demos

I had a great time in Berlin at TechEd and want to thank everybody who came to my presentation. I hope you found it valuable and worth your time. As promised, you can download my demo files here. The .txt files are my demo files which are really just a list of PowerShell commands. They are not meant to be run as complete PowerShell scripts. Some of the demos call the other VBS and PS1 scripts.

Here’s the recording of my session. (visit TechEd site)

Finally, Oskar S. was the winner of a free ebook of Windows PowerShell 2.0: TFM.

TechEd 2010 VBScript to PowerShell

Last week I posted my demo slides as well as my demo videos. As promised, I’ve gone through and expanded a bit on my original slide deck.  TechEdNA-2010-Hicks-ParadigmShift is a 3MB PDF of my expanded PowerPoint slide deck. If you have any questions about the content or what it takes to get your head from the world of VBScript to Windows PowerShell, please let me know.  I hope you find this useful. Enjoy.

TechEd 2010 Demos

As promised,  I’ve assembled my demo scripts as well as the transcriptfrom my TechEd 2010 talk Paradigm Shift Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition to Windows PowerShell. The official slide deck is supposed to be available on the TechEd web site.  I’m going to post an expanded version of the deck here sometime next week.

In the meantime, this zip file has all of the demo scripts I used. I also made backup videos of my demos using Camtasia. If you are interested, you can download a zip file with all of them.

Microsoft TechEd NOLA

Print I’m very excited about Microsoft TechEd next week in New Orleans, LA. I’ll be presenting Tuesday afternoon at 1:30PM. The official title is “Paradigm Shift: Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition to Windows PowerShell”. In more practical terms, I’ll be talking about the necessary mind shift in moving from VBScript to PowerShell. I’ll talk about what you have to get your head around to successfully make the transition and provide some practical examples to demonstrate how you might make these changes. As with many of my talks, you can expect a lot of demos.

Other than that, I’ll be in the Windows Server booth (TLC/Red/WSV) throughout the week.

Monday, June 7 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Tuesday, June 8 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM, 2:45 PM – 5:00 PM

Wednesday, June 9 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM

Thursday, June 10 12:15 PM – 3:00 PM

I hope you’ll come by and at least say Hi. Or feel free to pick my brain.  If you have books you’d like signed, I’m happy to do that as well. I’ll be pretty active with FourSquare and Twitter if none of these times work for you.

See you next week.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!
