Please join us this Thursday at the usual time (9:30 PM EDT) and place (live.powerscripting.net), as we welcome Alan Renouf back to the show! Expect to hear the latest from Al on PowerCLI and how you can manage your VMware environment from PowerShell. And you can also expect Hal to mangle Al’s name, yet again.
Please join us live at 9:30 PM EDT tonight, when we are welcoming Simon May to the show for his first appearance! Simon is an Enterprise Device Infrastructuralist at Microsoft, and tonight, everyone learns what that means.
In his own words:
It’s my job to explain Microsoft’s stuff to IT professionals, help them understand it and start to implement it. I concentrate on the mobilization of IT and cover Windows, Internet Explorer, mobile devices, Windows Azure, Office 365 and Windows Intune and technologies to manage all of these like System Center.
I’m also the author of three books, Windows Phone 8 Plain & Simple, Windows 8 For Tablets Plain & Simple and The Rough Guide to Windows 7.
Simon blogs on Technet and his personal site simon-may.com, and can be found on Twitter @simonster.
Hi everyone. Apparently, we didn’t relax enough over the long weekend, and we need more time to recharge! Jonathan has one show in the hopper, soon to be published, and we also have audio from the Atlanta Techstravaganza show from not too long ago that we want to get out to you guys.
But have no fear, we will be back for a live show on September 11th! For that show, we are going to have Jason Helmick come turn the tables and interview us this time, so that should be something different.
In the meantime–please send us your feedback! In particular, we are always looking for guest and topic ideas. You can mail the show, or tweet to us @powerscripting.
Hi everyone, we hope that you join us this Wednesday (Aug 27, 2014) at 9:30 PM EDT as we welcome our friend of the show Ed Horley to teach everyone about IPv6! Ed also knows a thing or two about network configuration with PowerShell, so it should be a great talk.
Don’t forget, you can join us live at live.powerscripting.net, or tune in later for the video recording and audio podcast versions. Here’s a little bit about Ed for those who haven’t seen him speak:
Ed Horley is the Practice Manager – Cloud Solutions and the Practice Lead – IPv6 at Groupware Technology in the San Francisco Bay Area and is the author of Practical IPv6 for Windows Administrators from Apress. Ed is actively involved in IPv6 serving as the co-chair of the California IPv6 Task Force http://www.cav6tf.org/ and additionally helping with the North American IPv6 Task Force http://www.nav6tf.org/ He has presented at the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit, the North American IPv6 Summit, the Texas IPv6 Summit in addition to co-chairing and presenting at the annual gogoNETLive IPv6 conference in Silicon Valley. He has also presented on IPv6 at Microsoft TechEd North America and Europe, at Cisco Live in North America and Europe, at TechMentor and at Interop.
Ed is a retired Microsoft MVP (10 years from 2004 to 2013) and has spent the last 18+ years working in networking as an IT professional. Ed enjoys Umpiring Women’s Lacrosse when he isn’t playing around on IPv6 networks. He maintains a blog at howfunky.com where he covers technical topics of interest to him and is on twitter at @ehorley.
Tomorrow (8/7 @ 9:30 PM EDT), we will be joined by two IT Pro Evangelists from Microsoft, both of them based in California. It should be a great show, so be sure to join us at live.powerscripting.net for the live stream!
Here’s a bit of an intro to our guests:
Jessica DeVita (@ubergeekgirl)
I am thrilled to be joining Microsoft as a Technical Evangelist serving the IT Pro community in the West Region. I’m passionate about social media for technologists, collaboration/workflow systems, CRM and bridging the IT/DEV gap with DevOps culture and systems thinking. I’ve been called the technology whisperer, and I love helping IT people learn new tools and strategies to better support their environments.
Jennelle Crothers (@jkc137)
Before joining Microsoft, Jennelle Crothers spent 15 years as a Systems Administrator “jack of all trades”
overseeing Windows domains, Exchange Server, desktops and other IT systems where she struck fear into the hearts of end-users with complex password policies and email retention tags. As a Technology Evangelist for IT Professionals, she speaks to members of the IT community about what’s new and cool with Microsoft technologies.
Be sure to join us live tomorrow night, July 31st at 9:30 PM EDT with our guest Robert Cain! Robert is a SQL MVP, and a long-time software developer. But one of our favorite things about Robert this week is that he is the lead organizer for SQL Saturday #328, happening Aug 23rd in Birmingham, AL. And do you know what’s so special about this event? It’s got a full day PowerShell track, that’s what!
If you’ve not been to a SQL Saturday (or a PowerShell Saturday event for that matter), you should check it out! The events are free or nominal to join (sometimes there’s a lunch fee), and that crowd really knows how to run a great community tech event.
If you want to learn more about Robert, he blogs at arcanecode.com, and tweets @arcanecode.
Please join us tonight at 9:30 PM EDT at live.powerscripting.net when we are talking with Glenn Block about some new asynchronous programming features in .NET, and tips and caveats about how you can work with them in PowerShell.
You can read more about async/await at MSDN.
Glenn blogs at codebetter.com, and can be often be seen at developer events near you!
As always, we are looking for ideas for interesting things to talk about on the show. If you have anything PowerShell-related that you want to know more about, then now’s your chance! Send us your ideas, and we will either find *the* expert on that topic, or Jonathan and Hal will take it on themselves! The point here is that we do the show for you guys and gals, and we want to hear from you. So, please use the twitters, the facebooks, the blog comments, or just plain email and help to shape the future of the podcast.
Some shows we have in the hopper include:
- SQL Saturday, PASS, and why SQL admins need PowerShell
- How to work with .net async from PowerShell
- What’s new with Azure & PowerShell
Anything beyond that is all you!
