Trond Hindenes presented on Real Life SMA this month. Boe Prox was able to get this presentation recorded and it is now on YouTube.
This month we have several exciting things going on! First, Trond Hindenes will be joining us via Lync from the great country of Norway for a presentation on Service Management Automation (SMA). Trond is a Senior Consultant at Crayon who spends most of his non-snowboarding time working on Microsoft System Center, PowerShell, Active Directory, Virtualization and Microsoft Azure. You can find him onTwitter and on his website Trond’s Working!
Second, the first 30 minutes of this meeting will be used to announce the “official” formation of an Omaha System Center Users Group and to give attendees time to network with each other and talk to Matt, Kelly and Zac about the formation of the user group (if they are interested in learning more about it). If you are interested in learning more about the Omaha Sytems Center User Group before the meeting you can find them on Twitter or you can email them email@example.com .
We will attempt to record Trond’s presentation using Lync but no promises :).
This month PowerShell MVP Trevor Sullivan will be presenting on using Windows Azure with PowerShell. Additionally you will want to bring your laptops (or favorite device to use PowerShell on) as we will have a little scripting challenge involving PowerShell, Credentials and Security. Also, my girlfriend has promised to make cookies for everyone!
Trevor Sullivan is an IT professional and a Microsoft Windows PowerShell MVP who has been in the field since early 2004. His focus has been on using various enterprise tools within the Microsoft platform to provide business value through positive end user impact.
In August Bartek Bielawski presented on OMI, PowerShell, Linux using PowerShell and the power of Sparkle Ponies. His presentation notes and code can be found here: https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=4BFE4A6675A48C91&id=4BFE4A6675A48C91%21115
In the second ever meeting of the Omaha PowerShell User Group we will have PowerShell MVP Bartek Bielawski talking about OMI: PowerShell Everywhere:
- CIM cmdlets and CDXML commands are advertised as technology that will enable PowerShell users to manage anything in datacenter. It wouldn’t be possible though without something that we can talk to on the remote end, and that’s were OMI kicks in. In this presentation I will show you how you can manage processes on Linux using OMI and CIM, and how easy it is to create CDXML based commands on top of it.
This meeting (and all future meetings) are for anyone who uses or is interested in PowerShell.
This meeting is not limited to people who reside in Omaha. If you are in the area and want to come, you are more than welcome!
The next (and second ever) meeting of the Omaha PowerShell Users Group is taking place next Tuesday, August 26th. MVP Bartek Bielawski will be talking about OMI on Windows and Linux.
I am having some issues with Lync in our Office 365 account so as soon as that gets straightened out I will be creating the invite for you to sign up, so watch for that!
The first Omaha PowerShell User Group Meeting is in the books! We had a great turnout with 26 people showing up last night.

We are currently looking for a meeting place and are shooting for having our first meeting the last week in July.
