Session: Using Windows PowerShell 3.0 to manage the remote Windows 8 workstation
Description: There are four different ways to manage a remote Windows 8 workstation. The first is to use WMI remoting, the second is to use the computername cmdlets, the third is to use WinRm and Windows PowerShell native remoting, the last way is to use the CIM cmdlets. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages for the network administrator. In this session, I will examine each approach, and provide a checklist of criteria to aid the enterprise network administrator in choosing the appropriate technology for a variety of real world scenarios. This presentation combines live demo’s and interactive discussion to heighten learning.

Session: Splatting in PowerShell and [adsisearcher]
Description: What is splatting and why should you care for it? Splatting is a relatively underused feature in PowerShell and in this session the how and why will be explained. The second half of this session is dedicated to [adsisearcher] and why it is still relevant now that the Active Directory Cmdlets are around.

Session: Protect your PowerShell scripts with version control
Description: Software developers would not have to think about working on a project without some form of version control. So why is this so unusual for the IT Professional who is responsible for maintaining PowerShell scripts containing hundreds of lines of scripts? Version control or source control are terms used for the practice of tracking changes in the source code. There are several tools that can help you implement version control like GIT, Mercurial and Team Foundation Server. This session explains how you can protect your PowerShell scripts with Team Foundation Server (TFS) for version control. After this you will never have to worry that you do not copy your script after you had made so many changes in your script had made it no longer works.

Session: From command, to script, to function, to advanced function, to tool.
Description: Would it not be easy and cool to create your own cmdlets and/or tools? This session will be all about using your commands and oneliners to create scripts, go from those scripts to functions and as the final step to create advanced functions or even tools.
