Recap of Dutch PowerShell Saturday September 2016

Last weekend we gathered for yet another PowerShell Saturday, this time hosted in Amsterdam by IPsoft who generously provided us with the space to hold our meeting. This was the second time we organized the PowerShell Saturday event and it was nice to see that once again we had a great turnout. Not the least because of the great line up of speakers, during the event we had the following four speakers:

Speaker Session
Flynn Bundy Nano Server – The Future is Now
Javy de Koning Optimizing code for collaboration
Matthew Hodgkins Chatops with PowerShell
Irwin Strachan OVF – Pester for SysAdmins

During the event we took a number of pictures to give you an impression of event:

During the event Thierry Cailleau provided us with live reports of the content being presented including notes and links in our Slack channel, dupsug.slack.com. Feel free to join us there to catch up on the details of the day or if you have any questions regarding the content that was shared during PowerShell Saturday.

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.
