Weekend Scripter: An Ideal PowerShell Schedule for Ignite


Summary: Windows PowerShell MVP and Scripting Wife, Teresa Wilson, creates her ideal schedule for Ignite 2015 in Chicago.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I decided to turn over the keyboard to the Scripting Wife, who is bouncing off of the walls in anticipation of Ignite starting…

Greetings fellow PowerShellers!

I am so excited! We just finished the Windows PowerShell Summit, and now we are on the road to Chicago for Microsoft Ignite. Tomorrow, we head to the conference center to check out our booth. Ed and I will be at the Scripting Guys booth in the Microsoft area during the hours the Expo Hall is open.

I will probably leave only long enough to eat lunch because I hate to miss out on seeing everyone who comes by the booth. Granted, I may take the long way back from lunch because I have to go by certain booths and say “hi” to friends who are working their booths, but I won’t be gone long. I know you don’t attend events just to see me—but I go to see you so I can help spread the word about Windows PowerShell.

As usual, I went into the schedule builder and made my –WhatIf schedule. These are the session I would attend if I was not staffing the booth. Hope you find something here that you will learn from and that you can take away some knowledge from the conference to make your work day flow more smoothly.

    Thanks for your list. There are a lot of sessions to download from Ch9. I missed a few that looked interesting.
