Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at MS Fest in Prague. This was the second year in a row for me that I was speaking at this event and it was once again great to attend and to have the opportunity to meet with people from the other side of Europe.
During the conference I did talked about PowerShell security in which I discussed the different kinds of logging that are available in PowerShell and how they can be utilized to find out what is happening on your system. Furthermore we went into Ransomware, what it is, how it operators and what we can do about it.
My slides and code are, as always, available on my GitHub account:

To give you an impression of the event I have included some photos taken during MS Fest:
The 9th Dutch PowerShell User Group meeting, almost exactly four years after our very first meeting. First of all I would like to thank everyone involved, speakers, IPsoft and our attendees for making this event into a success. We announced this event just 6 days before it was actually held and we were at full capacity within two days. A great show of community involvement which was definitely present during the evening.
During the event we had the following three speakers and sessions:
The event was hosted and generously sponsored by IPsoft and the following photos will give you an impression of the event:
Five countries, five MVPs
We have also created a separate repository on the DuPSUG GitHub account which has all available presentations:

Last weekend we wrapped up the PowerShell Conference Asia 2016 in Singapore and it was a great event. I had the opportunity to speak at the event and present a number of sessions. This year we had a healthy mix of PowerShell, DevOps and everything else. The crowd was very engaging, so if you attended the PSConfAsia 2016: “Thank you for being a great crowd!”.
I would like to give a big shout-out to Milton Goh, Matthew Hitchcock, Sebastian Szumigalski, Ravikanth Chaganti and Benjamin Hodge for putting this event together with the support of the sponsors of the event. It was a great opportunity for myself to interact with the PowerShell community in Asia and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Here are some picture to give you an impression of the event:

Last Saturday I received an email from Microsoft that I have been renewed as a Cloud and Datacenter MVP. This year was my first renewal so obviously I am very happy that my contributions over the past year have been rewarded in this fantastic way.
I would like to thank everyone in the technical communities I have participated and contributed to, as I would not have been able to do this by myself. Through your participation, contributions, feedback and comments I have been able to grow and share my technical expertise.
Over the past year I have joined many more communities and participated in numerous events and I look forward to many more interactions with everyone over the coming year. Feel free to contact me if you would like me to speak at any events you are organizing. My contacts details are listed on my About page, or leave a comment below this post.

After a full morning and afternoon of presentations we continued on with the Open Stage, this is the section of the PowerShell Saturday where we will have room for several short presentations, the opportunity to share something interesting you have found out when working with PowerShell and a moment to discuss common issues. In which both me and Flynn shared some ideas on Docker and exporting PowerShell objects as binary streams.
