PowerShell User Groups – From New York to Almere – Flow & Azure Functions

Over the past two weeks I have presented at both the New York PowerShell User Group as well as the Dutch PowerShell User Group. It was a great opportunity for me to present on two fresh technologies in the Microsoft stack, Microsoft Flow and Azure Functions. Both topics spurred lively discussions among the crowd and it was great to see the different view points of how the technology could be used.

This is one of the benefits of both speaking and attending technical user groups, people speaking and attending have an interest in the same technology but utilize it in varying ways. It is a great way to expose yourself different perspectives.

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:

I also shared the slides I used and my other presentations on SlideShare:

Tokyo MVP New Year event

As I was traveling in Tokyo I was invited to participate in the Tokyo MVP New Year event two weeks ago. This was a great opportunity for me to network with my peers in Japan and share stories about what we encountered in our work and how we handled them.

It turns out that we had been running in many of the same issues and challenges and it led to some interesting discussions about how we resolved them. For example the same security threats that plagued us, Wannacry, Petya and more recently Spectre and Meltdown and it was interesting to hear the different approaches taken to solving these challenges we have in common.

For me this was an unique possibility to hear the stories and experiences of engineers and developers working on the other side of the globe and to understand their perspectives and views.
