Petri continues his journey to enlighten PowerShell capabilities for IT Admins' every day work. This highly popular session series has been upgraded to an all-day hands-on lab, which gives us more time to dive deeper and learn more in-depth tips and tricks.

Petri shares his own learnings, tips and tricks from real life work in Windows, Windows Server, management/deployment, Intune, Office365 and Graph API management. These techniques will help you build your own scripts. There are many "building blocks" which we utilize basically in every script we do.

We know object manipulation capabilities are what makes PowerShell superior to other script or programming languages. Let's extend our knowledge how to manipulate objects and use that information when we are creating PowerShell commands/scripts and tools. Understand this and you will rock PowerShell and you can do anything with your scripts.

We will start from basics and then continue to more advanced techniques and scripts.

At the end of the day, you will learn many PowerShell script examples, tips, and tricks which you can utilize immediately in your own work.

You will learn:

  • About PowerShell objects and learn how to utilize them in your scripts. This is the most important skill that enables you to do anything with PowerShell
  • Tips, tricks, and "building blocks" for your own scripts which you can utilize in your work. You will utilize these in all your scripts for example in error handling and logging.
  • Tips and tricks for Windows, management/deployment, Intune, Office 365, Azure and Graph API management
