Please join us Thursday, Feb 6th for a presentation by Art Beane on using PowerShell to automate applications using COM. Usually at the start of a project, the first task is to document the IT Infrastructure and generate reports in Excel and Visio, which, as with all Microsoft Office products, can only be externally automated through COM objects. Over the years, Art has developed a number of tips, tricks, and snippets to make COM object processing easier that he is happy to share with us.
More about Art:
Art Beane has been working in IT for more than 30 years, starting at Digital Equipment Corp where he was assigned to help develop solutions to complex and large scale problems. Some of them included the first deployment of Ethernet in a production environment, a design for a launch control system for the Space Shuttle, deployment of an expert system to automate tasks for an Australian ministry, and the resolution of a network connection problem for Space Mountain at Disney World. After Digital, Art worked at Banyan Systems as the global consulting project manager where he worked mostly on email projects like message automation at Singapore Telecom and the merger of Korean companies Lucky and Goldstar into LG.
