On the 23rd of January I had the opportunity to speak at the MS Cloud Summit Paris pre-conference. Together with the dbatools / dbareports legends, Chrissy LeMaire and Rob Sewell we covered an entire day of PowerShell, Azure and SQL Server. The event itself has been really great and well organized, so I would like to thank the organization for putting together such a fantastic event for the European technical community!
As always I have made the code and slides available on GitHub, so if you are interested in the content that I delivered have a look over here:

There are currently only tickets available for the pre-conference sessions, so if you did not decide yet there is still a change to join us there.
Today I attended the Dutch PowerShell User Group meeting, colloquially known as DuPSUG. It was the first meeting of 2015 and it was a day filled with exciting sessions focusing on Desired State Configuration, OMI, AST and Azure Pack. Inovativ was kind enough to host the day at their headquarters in Amstelveen.
The mstsc tool unfortunately does not support credentials, because of this I have written a short function that uses mstsc in combination a input of username and password or a PowerShell credential object. In the tip on PowerShell Magazine I show how to use this function to connect to Azure virtual machines. The full article is available on PowerShell Magazine : Connect to Azure Virtual Machines without being prompted for credentials
