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:

New article on PowerShell Magazine: Save untitled tabs in PowerShell ISE to clipboard

When I am working in the PowerShell ISE I often have many open untitled tabs open. In order to bring some order to the chaos I wrote a small function to save all untitled tabs to the clipboard so I could paste it somewhere else. The full article  is available on PowerShell Magazine : Save untitled tabs in PowerShell ISE to clipboard

After posting this tip, I noticed that Richard Diphoorn posted a nice addition to this tip on his blog. He uses the Send-MailMessage cmdlet to send the untitled tabs by email, to OneNote for example. His post is available here: Send Unsaved Untitled PowerShell ISE tabs to E-Mail
