Once again I’m pleased to say I’ll be doing the guest speaker spot on the Sunday of Thomas Lee’s PowerShell PowerCamp.
PowerCamp is 2 action-packed days of PowerShell – taking you from 0 to as fast YOU can go in two days. It’s a great way to get over that basic learning curve. I’ve sat the course, it’s really good and the best value/fastest way to get up to speed on PowerShell.

I look forward to seeing you on the Sunday.
Here are some more details on the event:
What is A PowerShell PowerCamp?
PowerCamp is a fast paced weekend training event that covers all the basic aspects of Windows PowerShell 4 – from the command line to writing production-oriented scripts. We start with the basics including configuration, formatting and providers and remoting and jobs. Then, on day 2, we look at scripting, work flows, managing script libraries using modules, WMI/CIM, using objects, and finishing with the PowerShell features added into Windows including Desired State Configuration. The event concludes with a short look at PowerShell in the cloud and a quick call out to all the things we just can’t cover in two days.
The PowerCamp event is a combination of lecture, demonstrations plus Q&A, with the opportunity to type along with the tutor. There are no formal labs. But I do provide the key demos, all the slides, plus a wealth of other add on material on a memory stick you get at the start of day 1. So bring along your laptop, and type away.
