Still a complete PowerShell beginner? Here’s your chance to finally get up to speed – before Microsoft releases a new version and raises the learning curve even higher! Don Jones, one of the world’s most well-known PowerShell authors and experts, brings you a half-day crash course that brings you up to speed quickly. Drawing from his new book, Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches, Don makes PowerShell’s concepts easy to understand through real-world examples. He covers the under-the-hood concepts that otherwise make PowerShell seem difficult, explaining key capabilities like formatting, pipeline input binding, and much more. Absolutely no prior scripting or programming experience is required, as PowerShell isn’t a scripting language. If you can run “ping,” you can learn PowerShell from Don! His primary goal: To teach you how to use PowerShell’s own features to teach yourself how to use the shell in a variety of situations and with a broad range of technologies, including Active Directory, Windows, SharePoint, Exchange, SQL Server, and more. This is your last chance to make 2011 the “Year You Learned the Shell,” so don’t miss this incredible opportunity. This is not a hands-on workshop; you will not need a laptop, and power will not be available in the classroom. Don provides a transcript of everything he types in the shell, along with any sample scripts, as a free download after the conference.
