Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Apologizes for going "radio-silent" on the blog here. We have all been very busy getting some very exciting things ready.
I'm going to leave out the details until next week but clever people will notice that we are coming up on our 1 year anniversary and remember we really like TechEd and IT Forum (both of which are in Nov).
This year is particularly exciting because Don Jones and Jeffery Hicks are holding the world's first PowerShell Mini-Conference in Las Vegas on 11/4 and 11/5. I'm doing the keynote address and another session. If you are attending this, you'll be amongst the first to hear and see what we are up to. It will be interesting to see how this conference grows over time.
In any case, I'll be at all 3: the PowerShell MiniConference, TechEd, and IT Forum in Barcelona. If you are going to be at these, please look up me, introduce yourself and let me know what you like/don't like about PowerShell or what we should be doing to make it your favorite tool ever.

What does Microsoft plan to do to help end users/consumers who don't have the technical skill/time/wish to learn PowerShell? Why doesn't scripting on Windows offer something like Automator on the Mac? There are very few and rare third party apps (ScriptAhead and VSoft Automise) available but with their price as high as Windows itself or more, they're out of reach. Microsoft should develop a GUI tool that generates VBScripts and can record actions and make them into a script.
Sounds like great news Jeffrey. I am very interested to find out first hand how to get involved (beta testing, document review, etc.). This is very important as we are looked upon (as MCTs) for expert training, advice and guidance e.g. POSH 2.0 will have build-in remote management capabilities, improved AD support, etc.
Can't wait to see the new stuff. Maybe I can "borrow" a few tidbits for my Powershell and DotNetNuke session that will be happening at OpenForce'07 which is the DotNetNuke conference co-located with DevConnections from the 5th to the 8th. Sounds like Vegas will be real busy week for me. See ya there.
looking forward to "powershell" connections. If anybody is going, or at any "winconnections" sort of things, and wants to catch up. send me at email at karl at powershell dot com .

NDA prevents me from adding details to Jeffrey's hints. But I can tell you to watch this blog (and others) for something that really will be pretty cool!!!!!
i would LOVE to go to the Barcelona event, but my company won't afford me the entrance, any spare free seat for me? ;)
I want to tell you that this tool rocks , ok , it totally rocks .
Its amazing the time ive saved using it .
In fact , its some many times faster and powerful than VBScrits that is creepy.
Cheers and thanks
I'll be in barcelona for teched developers this year and I have a funky bit of powershell software that i'm announcing that week. Let me know if you'd be interested in me showing it to you :)
I would love to see what you are working on. Please come find me and show it.
