PowerShell Power Breakfast in Utah – Kickoff Meeting 8:00am-9:00am, Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Buy your breakfast at the East Bay Cafe, have a seat, and learn about PowerShell for one hour.  That’s the basic premise of the monthly PowerShell Power Breakfast.  PowerShell provides for Windows what shells like Bash provide in Linux – a command line for one-off tasks or automation, be they simple or complex.  Schedule this event on your calendar, and bring your manager and/or coworkers.

I’ll be presenting a rapid-fire introduction to PowerShell, and will be followed by Ben Miller, current president of the Salt Lake City SQL Server Users Group.  Ben will present on Gathering SQL Server Performance Data With PowerShell.  Both presentations will be brief, and if time allows, we’ll hold a free-form discussion afterward.

Schwag will be given to a few lucky attendees, including this OGIO backpack,38 038 - cropped,resampled courtesy of Redmond and local Microsoft Technology Strategist Dan See.  Thanks, Dan!

The following screen shot shows a directory listing(yes, that ls alias is installed by default), retrieval of BIOS information, and password generation using a .NET method, all using PowerShell.PowerShell_Breakfast01

Did that pique your interest?  Come to the breakfast to learn more!
