This years North American PowerShell Summit was an amazing event, not only because of the outstanding speakers and sessions, but also because of you – the attendees. The enthusiasm you brought from the first mornings welcome to the evening events – like Iron Scripter – was contagious. Even the PowerShell.Org organization team, which was very tired by the time the Summit launched, got re-energized by everyone’s excitement. How can I forget Kendall Maddox winning that amazing trophy from the Iron Scripter event!
The speakers from both Microsoft and around the world brought the latest and best information about PowerShell. As an attendee, you were the first to see new technologies – like the PowerShell Team demonstrating DSC with Linux!
On behalf of the organizers at PowerShell.Org I want to say a huge thank you to all of the attendees and speakers. I also want to thank our special Sponsor SAPIEN Technologies for taking the time to come to the Summit and for handing out free fully licensed versions of their version control product Version Recall.
Are there resources from the Summit available?
Yes. More than you might think. As an example of how the PowerShell community never stops amazing me, @vhusker (Jacob Benson) created a Curah site with a ton of resources from the Summit. Start here!
Also, Many of the speakers contributed their slides and code, which can be downloaded here.
Derek Ardolf put together a great link page to video’s and slides on his site here.
Help us for next year!
If you have suggestions on how we can improve next years Summit, send me a tweet or email to @theJasonHelmick. We listen carefully to your suggestions and I want to hear from you.
In fact, from suggestions we received, we started a campaign during this years Summit to raise enough funds to record all of next years sessions – AND YOU MADE IT HAPPEN! I’m not saying we can accommodate everyone’s likes and dislikes, but we certainly want to hear about them and see how we can improve your experience.
Thanks to everyone for making this year’s North American 2014 PowerShell Summit a huge success. Watch PowerShell.Org for upcoming news on next year’s Summit.
