Earlier this week the largest IT Pro community event in the Netherlands was held once again in Pathe Ede. This event never fails to draw in a big crowd and as always was jam-packed with great speakers from around the globe.
Experts Live is a non-profit organization based in The Netherlands that has a mission to “enable sharing of knowledge and experience about Microsoft technologies worldwide” and was founded by Maarten Goet (MVP, RD).
For anyone interested to learn more about Chat Automation beyond what was covered in this session, Brandon Olin, is currently writing a book on Chat Automation: ChatOps the Easy Way, which is shaping up to be a great resource for anyone interested in ChatOps!
I also shared the slides I used and my other presentations on SlideShare:

I would like to thank Rubrik for sponsoring the swag I got to give away at both events. To give an idea of what user groups are like I have attached some pictures to give an impression of both events:

Microsoft Flow is a great workflow automation tool, but most likely PowerShell is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Flow. In this session I will show how to integrate Microsoft Flow in PowerShell scripts and vice-versa and to highlight the benefits that this provide. This demo-heavy session will feature a lot of PowerShell …
After a busy week at the PowerShell Conference Europe last week, blog post about this event is coming up soon! This week will be all about cloud based automation in both the form of Azure Functions as well as Microsoft Flow.
