PowerShell Conference and Cloud Automation

The last two weeks I had the opportunity to speak at a number of events. The PowerShell Conference Europe in Hanover and technical user groups in the UK. This post is intended to provide information about the various events and is intended to share the information in regard to the sessions.

Last week, 17-20 April, the PowerShell Conference Europe was held again. This event was once again a great success, with sessions presented by the PowerShell Team and experts from their respective fields. Enthusiasts gathered from all over the Europe, and the world, to participate in this event. There were plenty of lively interactions between attendees and speakers and the PowerShell team. All in all there was a great atmosphere of sharing and collaboration at the conference.

The location of the conference, unchanged for 3 years now, housed the 300+ attendees easily. In contrast to last year the rooms in which the sessions were held were located more conveniently so that limited the amount of walking around the venue. On the last day of the conference an German X-Factor event was being held in the same venue, so this resulted an interesting mix of people in- and around the venue.

I could not mention this years PowerShell Conference without at least mentioning the fact that #SadJoey hashtag was a trending topic at the conference. Due to an excellent picture tweeted by PowerShell team member, Steve Lee.

To give you and impression of the event I have shared some pictures of the PowerShell Conference Europe here:

I presented the following three topics, so head over to my GitHub account to grab the slides and code, as always it is stored in the Events repository:

All presentations and accompanying code can be found in the PSConfEU GitHub repository here. All sessions have been recorded and this post will be updated with the links to the videos once it becomes available.

The week following the PowerShell Conference I left for the UK to speak at various PowerShell, WinOps and Cloud Infrastructure user groups. The theme of the topics was mostly focused on Cloud Automation using Azure Functions and Microsoft Flow in combination with several other products of the Office 365 suite.

As the sessions in the UK were in the week after the PowerShell Conference, Tobias Weltner was so kind to gift two PSConfEU shirts for the user groups in the UK. The best question was rewarded with the polo with the PSConfEU logo embroidered on it. This was of course a tough call, and for the second shirt I opted for the always reliable Get-Random cmdlet.

It was impressive to see everyone turn up for the technical meetups, as all of them took place in the evenings and the Microsoft Flow workshop was held on Saturday. There are a lot of people with passion for their jobs and the technologies they work with. It was great to meet you all, thanks for your interest and the engaging discussions, both after as well as during the sessions.

The slide decks, labs and code I have used are stored into my GitHub account in the Events repository:

The big take away for me is that fueling this passion in the technical communities is important and sharing ideas is what drives this. By doing so we are able to learn from each other and improve our technical abilities. This would of course not be possible without the support of all the sponsors, and in my case my employer Rubrik, as they make it possible for me to participate and contribute to the technical communities.

I also put the slides up on SlideShare to make it easier to view and share:

Summary of PowerShell Conference Europe 2017

Last week I was lucky enough to attend and speak at the largest European PowerShell conference, PowerShell Conference Europe in Hannover.  At the conference I was surrounded by some of the best and brightest in the my field, an overwhelming and educational experience. I think it is fair to say this has been one of the best events of its kind and my thanks goes out to Tobias and the PSConfEU team for putting such a great event together.

If you missed out on the event then there is no need to fret as almost every session has been recorded and the PSConfEU team is currently working on making sure all content is available on the PowerShell Conference Europe YouTube channel:

The location looks amazing from the pictures and from what I have heard it appears to be a great location. The combination of the speakers, the location and our shared passion for technology will make this into the event that cannot be missed in 2016.
