PowerShell Spotlight: Scripting Guys at Ignite


Summary: Microsoft PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson, talks about plans for the Scripting Guys booth at Ignite in Chicago.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today we have Windows PowerShell MVP, Teresa Wilson (aka The Scripting Wife) with another edition of PowerShell Spotlight...

It is almost April which means conference season is about to begin. I am so excited. The first conference is the PowerShell Summit in Charlotte April 20-22. This event is sold out. It is going to be an awesome three days. If you are in the Charlotte area and did not get tickets to the Summit (or even if you did and are going to be around on the last day), the Charlotte Windows PowerShell User Group is hosting Lee Holmes. There are still tickets for that free event, so you will want to sign up for that if you can: Everyday PowerShell – My Favorite PowerShell Hacks with Lee Holmes. Lee is an awesome speaker, and he will be talking about totally bodacious Windows PowerShell tricks.

Next up will be the Microsoft Ignite in Chicago, May 4-8, 2015. There is still time to register, and I would definitely sign up before it is too late: Microsoft Ignite Registration.

Ed and I will be on hand at the Scripting Guys booth in the Microsoft on Microsoft area. When the exact floor plan is available, I am sure Ed will post it in a blog. Meanwhile, I can tell you we have three of the most awesome guys I know staffing the booth with us. This year it is Microsoft PFEs, Jason Walker, Gary Siepser, and Brian Wilhite. All three have written awesome blog posts for the Hey, Scripting Guy! Blog, and all three are also accomplished speakers. Having so much Windows PowerShell knowledge all in one spot will be impressive. If you are at Ignite, you will want to stop by and talk to these guys.

Of course, The Microsoft Scripting Guy and I will also be at the booth. I am putting together a schedule, so you will always know who will be around and when. By the way, Ed says if you have one (or more) of his Windows PowerShell books you can bring them by, and he will be glad to autograph them. Brian was the tech reviewer for the last book, and so he will also be glad to autograph the book. I guess if you have the electronic version on your Kindle, they will be willing to autograph your Kindle...if you wish.

Speaking of so much awesome knowledge in one spot...

Don't forget all our special guests, which has become a tradition at our booth. So far we have Windows PowerShell founder, Jeffrey Snover, Don Jones, Todd Klindt, Steve Murawski, Yuri Diogenes, Jason Helmick, and Boe Prox promising to visit. There will be many, many more. I am working on the schedule for that now and will post it soon.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at scripter@microsoft.com, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.

Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
