In my last post I hinted about more news coming soon for the 2013 PowerShell Summit. In addition to the fantastic list of sessions that attendees will be able to attend, we also have a special event lined up for the last day of the event. On Wednesday, April 24th, for the entire afternoon attendees will be able to attend a half-day Windows PowerShell scenario walkthrough, presented by the PowerShell Team.
The event will take place on April 24 from 1pm – 5pm. During this time the PowerShell Team will work with attendees to collectively solve a problem from the ground up using many of the new features in Windows PowerShell 3.0 and Windows Server 2012.
Starting from base Windows Server 2012 images, you will walk through:
- Writing a PowerShell script workflow to perform Server deployments
- Creating a constrained endpoint that hosts only the deployment workflow
- Delegate a set of credentials for the workflow to use
- Exposing the workflow and it’s results through a RESTful web service
- Using Windows PowerShell Web Access to manage the workflow
This is a BYOD event, so please don’t forget to bring your own laptop to follow along!
The facilities we have for the conference can only accommodate 50 people at this event. To give everyone a fair chance to sign up, on December 1st we will send an email from EventBrite to everyone who has already purchased their conference ticket so that they can then sign-up for this free event. If you want to have a chance to attend this workshop, you will have a much better chance if you buy your ticket before that date!
There will also be other activities that afternoon for those who cannot attend this event due to their travel plans, or if all of the workshop tickets are all gone. If you are able to stick around though and if you can attend this workshop, this should be a fantastic way to end the conference!
