AZPSUG - Arizona PowerShell user group

Arizona PowerShell User Group – From PowerShell Function to Serverless code with Azure Functions

Yesterday I was asked to speak at the Arizona PowerShell User Group, I picked the subject of moving your code into Azure Functions. Although PowerShell might not seem like the obvious choice, there are some definite benefits to be had from having a subset of your code run in Azure Functions. Providing you with the benefits of serverless, no operational management and almost infinite scalability.

This was not the first time for me to speak at the Arizona PowerShell user group as I already spoke there, also remotely, in March this year. The topic back then was: Fun with PowerShell 6 – JEA Remoting and cross-platform.

KulenDayz, TugaIT and All Access – Event Recap

During the summer period there is always a bit of downtime in the conference season. That gives some time to prepare new sessions, explore new technologies or new combinations of technology that can be used to create new content.

But because not being able to talk about anything at all I did attend a number of events, All Access Amsterdam, Tuga IT and Kulendayz. At these events I delivered the following presentations:

All three events were very different in regards to how they were set up, to give a frame of reference: One event was held in an Amsterdam canal house, another in a Microsoft office and the last at a shooting range. But the common thread through each of these events was the fact that everyone was very eager to interact and discuss technology.

Because just sharing the photos is obviously only half the work, I have also shared the code on GitHub in my Events repository:

ExpertsLive 2018 – Automate yourself out of a job: Use ChatOps!

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!

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:

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 …
