In the Neighborhood

globe As some of you may have heard, I will be presenting in Helsinki, Finland on June 9th as part of the MVP All Stars seminar. I’m very excited about the conference and am looking forward to spreading the word about PowerShell to a new group of IT professionals. But it is a long trip from home to Helsinki and I’d like to make the most of it.

I’d love to be able to run a 3-5 day training session for your organization on either side of my June 9th event, although preferably before. If your organization is in Scandinavia, Northern Europe or even the UK and have been thinking about some PowerShell training, now is a great opportunity. From PowerShell fundamentals to advanced scripting to DSC, I am confident there is plenty of value I can add to your group. But the time to plan is now. I will try to accommodate as many requests as I can, but this really is a first-come, first-served situation.

New PowerShell Pluralsight Course

WatermarkLogo151x79I am so happy to announce that my first course under the Pluralsight badge has been released. My latest course is titled PowerShell v4 New Features. This course is aimed at IT Pros with previous experience using PowerShell, especially PowerShell v3. The course runs just under 3 hours (although it felt much longer than that while preparing it :-) ) and covers just the new bits that have changed from v3 including an introduction to Desired State Configuration (DSC). I provide enough information to get you started.

If you need to get caught up on v3 first, you can find my other courses on my author page. I hope you find my new course helpful.

PowerShell Essentials Webinar

Tomorrow I will be presenting a day of PowerShell training via a series of webinars for Windows IT Pro magazine. I will be presenting 3 webinars, each about 1 hour in length. The first webinar is on the PowerShell syntax and shell. Basically, how to survive in the shell if you are beginner. The second webinar will cover remote managment scenarios the simple, getting services on remote computers, to using WMI and CIM to PowerShell remoting. The final webinar is a jump-start on PowerShell scripting.

Naturally, the best I can do in an hour is to get you interested and hopefully started on the right path. I will be online during the webinars for a live Q&A.

Even thought the event is being marketed as PowerShell 4.0 and I will be using a Windows 8.1 desktop for my demos, almost all of the material applies equally to PowerShell 3.0 so don’t be afraid to sign up.
