Hotel Concordia, Lund
To learn how to enchance an existing .NET application with PowerShell capabilities.
Here before 25th of April

Have you ever been in a software project where the IT staff that would run the system in production, was accounted for right from the start? My guess is not very often. In fact, it’s far too rare to see functionality being built into software systems specifically to make the job of the IT administrator easier. It’s a pity, because pulling that off doesn’t require as much time and effort as you might think with tools like PowerShell.

In this session our own Enrico Campidoglio (@ecampidoglio) will show you how to enhance an existing .NET web application with a set of administrative tools, built using the PowerShell programming model. Once that is in place, he’ll demonstrate how common maintenance tasks can either be performed manually using a traditional GUI or be fully automated through PowerShell scripts using the same code base.

Since the last few years, Microsoft itself has committed to making all of its major server products fully administrable both through traditional GUI based tools as well as PowerShell. If you’re building a server application on the .NET platform, you will soon be expected to do the same.

As always there will be some quick food and drinks for you to enjoy with the session. We open the doors at 18:00 and Enrico will be on stage 18:15 and talk for about an hour. After that it’s time to get down and dirty with PowerShell, so if you want to stay for a practical workshop bring a laptop with GIT and VisualStudio installed. If you can’t bring one I’m sure there will be plenty of people to pair with.

I hope to see you there; space is limited so please RSVP if you would like to come. If you have any questions feel free to contact me, +46 (0)709-78 40 03.
