I’m presenting at SPFest Chicago – December 8th-10th 2014

I’m excited to be a part of SP Fest Chicago 2014 this year with two sessions:

“SharePoint PowerShell Time Machine”
On Tuesday December 9th at 11:20am.

In this session I share scripts that will either save you time, or in some cases, allow you to go back in time. For example, there’s a script that enables versioning on every document library in your farm. Another that logs basic permissions, and as many other handy scripts as I can fit into a 70 minute session!

“Advanced Introduction to PowerShell Scripting”
On Monday December 8th 8:30am-Noon with co-host Michael Blumenthal

This 100-200 level half day workshop will introduce you to PowerShell in a way that you can use the very next day at work. We’ll quickly cover the basics of PowerShell, then demonstrate some real world scripts used to solve day to day problems in the life of a SharePoint Administrator. We then deconstruct a script- and show you “how we figured it out” – showing the process of starting a script from scratch, and the explorative process used to figure out what to put in a script when you have no idea how at the beginning (and without using Google!) Along the way we explain and demonstrate the features of PowerShell that make things fun! There is something for everyone – new PowerShell users will be on the fast-track to using PS in day to day work. more experienced PS users benefit from seeing real-world scripts and hearing how others go about solving problems. We even have a few tricks that will save time for developers! 

I hope to see you there!
