Virtual PowerShell Presentation Microsoft User Groups Singapore

Last Friday I presented at the PowerShell Meetup of the Microsoft User Groups based in Singapore. Having been a speakers at the PowerShell Conference Asia, which is also held in Singapore, for the past two years, it was nice to virtually be present in the Microsoft offices again. 

The session I prepared was on the topic of writing PowerShell code, what tools to use and how to leverage the strengths of those tools. I focused the presentation on using both Visual Studio Code, VSCode, and the PowerShell ISE in combination with ISESteroids.

I have uploaded all the materials I used during my presentation to my Events GitHub Repository, which is available here:

PowerShell and Security – Presentation at iSense

As mentioned in the previous blog post I was invited to speak at iSense to talk about PowerShell and Security. This event was fully by sponsored by iSense who provided the attendees with a great experience. Before my session I was briefly interviewed and the interview, in Dutch, will be available soon.

Security is a topic that continues to make headlines around the world and as a result, PowerShell is mentioned more often either as an method to exploit or to prevent and secure your system. In this presentation I showed how PowerShell can be configured to provide insights in what scripts and tools are running in your environment and how to secure your PowerShell endpoints using Just Enough Administration, JEA.
