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:

To get an impression of the event, the event organizer Sebastian Szumigalski was kind enough to provide me with these pictures of the event, be sure to check out his blog it contains a lot of great content. Here are some of the photos to give you an impression of the event.

The PowerPoint slides are also available on SlideShare:

Last Thursday we hosted the tenth Dutch PowerShell User Group at Rabobank in Utrecht. It was another full day event starting at 9AM and finishing at 6PM. For this event, we had a diverse range of speakers and as a highlight we had Jakub Jareš visit our user group and giving two presentations on proper testing with Pester and Continuous Deployment for PowerShell.

Due to the enthusiasm of Ben van Zanten, Bartek Bielawski and Daniel Both we had three surprise speakers that added to our already full day of session. Our complete program of the day consisted of the following:
