Automating the world one-liner at a time…
One of the best things about PowerShell is its strong community. Events like the annual PowerShell Summit are a great way to get involved and learn more about PowerShell.
As in the past, the PowerShell team will present several sessions at the PowerShell Summit. This year, we want to get your input on the sessions that we will present.
Here is a list of sessions under consideration so far:
Which ones catch your interest? Are there any that we’re missing? Let us know in the comments.

I would be extremely interested in AST and incident response sessions!!! I think they would also complement my talk on using PowerShell for reverse engineering.
How about some product specific sessions, such as:
- Managing Sharepoint/Azure/Exchange/etc with PowerShell
- Develop for Sharepoint/Azure/Exchange/etc using PowerShell
.. as well a topic on "Reporting with PowerShell"
Hope that helps.
4. Performing Join Operations in PowerShell
3. Windows PowerShell as a Platform (API)
5. PSReadLine Deep Dive
2. Using Abstract Syntax Trees
1. CIM-based Modules
PSReadline is fantastic. I would love to hear a deep-dive on it, as well as the AST.

I would love to see the topic of writing help for modules. Modules and manifests, in general, are pretty sparsely documented, so I would love a deep dive on those. Hiding the inner workings of my code from less technical eyes helps keep things less confusing for the people my scripts get deployed to!
Dealing with path limit will probably be a great topic because it is one that is a constant thorn and there are various ways of dealing with it.
I would like to see those topics:
6. Using PowerShell to Configure Secure Environments (DSC and Delegated Admin)
9. Threading in PowerShell
Thanks! See you at the Summit!
From the list proposed, these ones grabbed my interest the most, more or less all having equal priority for me:
Windows PowerShell as a Platform (API)
Using Abstract Syntax Trees
Performing Join Operations in PowerShell
PSReadLine Deep Dive
Threading in PowerShell
. PowerShell for Security Incident Response
. Using PowerShell to Configure Secure Environments (DSC and Delegated Admin)
PowerShell for Security Incident Response looks like the most interesting for sure.
I would be interested in seeing a session on how to handle very large Active Directory datasets. When you want to work with 2500 users everything is pretty straightforward, when you want to manage 250,000+ what are tips to configure PowerShell, find users, export data and so on.
I'm interested in future directions for PowerShell.
I'm a C# programmer and also have worked previously in large Windows engineering teams, automating stuff (everything that moves) for vast enterprises. I've built a palette of CmdLets backed by REST services for one major client and it mashes so well with all the other tools they have.
Alas, I've found authoring large scripts to be far less painful that doing them in C# and have been enlightening my colleagues.
Wintel engineers love PS, particularly from a live command line, but two problems strike me; the ISE/IDE needs a lot of investment and the issue with 'extraneous function output' causes so much heartache, see link:
Visual Studio (Express) seems like the natural place for script authoring and would place engineers on the first rung of Microsoft stack development. The version control, history and diffing tools would be golden for large, global teams.
Anyway, way off on my diatribe: I would like to see what's in your innovation pipeline. a road-map or a vision. With .NET events you come away excited, knowing where your future's headed.
All the best,
If it helps we already have a session that will cover CIM based modules
These are the ones that catch my attention...
6.Using PowerShell to Configure Secure Environments (DSC and Delegated Admin)
