Come join PowerShell MVP Aleksandar Nikolić (@alexandair) to understand what this PowerShell thing is all about - and how to use it to turbocharge your Windows Azure toolbox: how to spin up a new VM, scale, set up networking, and more - all from the comfort of a few lines of PowerShell. The capabilities go well beyond simple deployment.
Of particular interest to the IT Pro, WazOps (Windows Azure DevOps), and Software Developers interested in automation.
In the opening talk, Bill Wilder will review some of the many recent announcements from Microsoft about enhancements and new features released for Windows Azure.
(This event will be held upstairs at NERD in the Commons which is entered from the 10th floor.)
